Embark on an evening snowshoe adventure through the snow gums to reach the hidden eco-village and central tipi, before indulging in a delicious French cheese fondue as part of a three course dinner.

The perfect evening of adventure and fun for you and your friends, family or colleagues.

The experience starts with an evening snowshoe walk through the mystic snow gums, to encapsulate a sense of remoteness and immerse oneself in the Australian alpine environment.

Leaving at sunset from the wire plain shelter at Hotham, the walk will weave its way to a hidden eco-village, where you will enjoy a delicious heart warming glass of Glühwein outside by the fire.

You will then be invited into the Central tipi with a fireplace, where you will learn the secrets to making a traditional and mouth-watering French fondue, with cheese imported for the occasion from French Alpine farms.

Expand on your Snowshoe to Fondue adventure by adding an intimate overnight stay in a unique snow-dome. Enjoy the added luxury of a scenic skidoo ride the following morning after a hearty, warming breakfast.

Alpine Nature Experience offers intimate and sustainable nature-based experiences in Victoria's High Country.

Hailing from the heart of the French Alps, founder Jean-Francois has always wanted to encourage others to discover the beauty of the mountains and experience nature. Since relocating to Australia in late 2014, he has been looking for the chance to share his passion for the outdoors and alpine activities.

“At first I was sceptical of the term “Alps” in Australia, but I love the mountains here, they are more accessible than in France and have an untouched feeling to them. With Alpine Nature Experience, I want to encourage more people to experience everything the high country has to offer".

Mount Hotham was a clear standout for his project due to the striking beauty of the mountain, hiking trails and overall atmosphere.

Alpine Nature Experience won Gold at the RACV VTIC Tourism Award for unique accommodation in 2019.

They are also a proud member of 1% For The Planet and pledge to give 1% of all sales to environmental organisations.

Great Alpine Road, Hotham Heights, Victoria, 3741
