French Alps: Ski, Snowboard, raft, hike and Bike

We kick off our trip in the Les Deux Alps where we ski or snowboard with experienced ski and snowboard instructors on the world’s largest skiable glacier. Each morning we practice our downhill skills and enjoy adventure activities in the afternoon such as whitewater rafting, mountain biking, hiking water falls, and racing down a summer luge.

Swiss Alps: Zip-Lining & Water Sports Galore

World famous Interlaken is our home as we get comfortable at a local Swiss farms. We wake board,or water ski with the towering Alps surrounding us. For our service project we have the opportunity to give back to the beautiful areas we’ve been enjoying. In Saas Fee we spend three more days on the slopes and go on a canyon adventure: climbing along ladders, bouldering up rocks and crossing the canyon on a zip-line. The car-free towns allow for some souvenir shopping and relaxation before we say goodbye to our new friends and the trip of a lifetime!

Itinerary

Day 1

Pack your bags and get ready to fly to the other side of the world! Before leaving, you’ll have access to a packing list, flight roster and important contact information. We’ll also send you a Bold Earth T-shirt so you can easily find other students at your departure gate. In Geneva’s airport, you are met upon arrival by your Bold Earth trip leaders. We head to our first camp near Geneva to settle in and begin our orientation. During orientation we get to know each other and learn what to expect in the days ahead. Our daily routine, daily jobs, safety rules and all trip logistics are explained and the process of growing together as a group begins.

Days 2-6

Our camp near Les Deux Alps is our first base and we attack the world’s biggest skiable glacier for three days. We start our action packed trip with rafting and a wonderful hike past many cascading waterfalls. During the mornings we are accompanied by certified ski and mountain guides, who show and instruct us how to ride and map out the areas. Skiing or snowboarding or both… it’s your pick. Later in the morning, we ride on our own to enjoy total freedom on these wonderful slopes. Afternoons are filled with action as we hike past many cascades,, get an adrenaline boost on the summer luge runs, and enjoy an afternoon of downhill mountain biking.

Days 7-8

We travel to Interlaken, a renowned Swiss mountain town, where we settle at a cozy Swiss farm. We gear up for some more riding and skiing, this time on one of the impressive lakes in the area with some hours of wake board/water-ski instruction. At the farm we lend a helping hand with a service project in the surrounding forest, on the farm itself, or any other area that may need work. A group of people can accomplish a lot in one day!

Days 9-12

It is only a short drive into Saas Fee in Switzerland, where many national teams are training for the upcoming winter season. We enjoy three more awesome days of skiing and snowboarding and head to a nearby pool for some well deserved swimming at a pool with water slides. There will definitely also be the chance to do some shopping for typical Swiss products. Our last night’s camp involves an exhilarating mountain adventure into the dry canyon valley!

Days 13-14

We head for Geneva, where we celebrate and look back on our last three fabulous weeks in the Alpine region of Europe!
