A special experience in the alps

Let's go to the Alps

Oberstockenalp mit Cheibehorn

Accompany an Alp family for one or two days in their alpine home and help them with carry out all their daily duties, whether it be working with cheese, herding or milking cows, making hay, or putting up fences. In the Alps, you have the world at your feet, but there is also work to do. It is best to experience what it is like in the Alps for yourself.

A day in the Alps starts early with the sunrise; the first task is to milk the animals. In the afternoon, the cheese is made and the cheese wheels in the cheese cellar are attended to. The massive cheese wheels need to be brushed and oiled – making you feel like you have spent the day in the gym. There is much to expect in the Alps: maintaining pastures, checking-up on the cows, making hay and more. All that physical work builds up an appetite and makes sitting down comfortably at a set table even more satisfying.

The friendships you build with the animals and the alpine family as well as all your impressions will be sweet memories for you for a lifetime.

There are two different families with whom you can experience life in the Alps.
