Life in the mountains is a real adventure!

Long walks among ibex and marmots, nights in a tent with a bonfire watching the stars, games by the lake, woods full of mushrooms and chestnuts to collect in company... And if it rains, you can take refuge in the warmth of a cosy hut.

  • A year of friendship and sharing in which the three protagonists enjoy the most beautiful experiences these landscapes can offer.
