Hiking and Fungus Hunting in the Swiss Jura

This one-day event combines a guided hike through the subalpine mountain range of the Swiss Jura with foraging for fungi. The name ‘Jura’ is an old celtic term that means ‘mountains of the forest’. Our six hour hike-foray will take us into the mixed conifer and decidious forests of the gentle rolling hills of the Jura. We will periodically stop to search for fungi in different habitat types and explore their ecological and cultural significances. The region is well-known for its range of fungi including lichens. Participants will learn how and where to search for fungi and the basics of fungus identification.

The hike will be guided by Valérie Chételat while fungus expert, Alison Pouliot, will guide the fungus foraying and identification.

Hiking time 3.5h. Maximal ascent and descent 500m.
Maximal number of participants: 8.
Booking accepted until 20 October 2017.
Costs: CHF 120.- per person.

Bhutan - Trekking through the Valleys of Happiness

A secluded promised land, Bhutan lies in the Himalayas between India and Tibet. Having only recently opened to tourism, this independent kingdom strongly protects its environmental and cultural values and prohibits mass tourism. Daily hikes of three to five hours with light-weight daypacks allow us ample time to experience Bhutan's natural and cultural highlights. Trek-free days in between give you time for your own discoveries. We will wander through forests of flowering rhododendron, visit historical sacred sites and enjoy the hospitality and daily life of the villagers.

Our accommodation in cozy, comfortable lodges and good hotels will delight the epicurean hiker. All will appreciate the experience of being in the only country in the world where happiness is a goal of the constitution!

Costs: CHF 6'850.- per person.
