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.
