Alpine Nature Experience is an evening you do not want to miss. You do not have to ski or be intrepid to discover the beauty of the Australian Alps.

This winter on Mount Hotham, Alpine Nature Experience will offer a new and unique experience: spending an exclusive and adventurous night in the snow.

Founder Jean-Francois Rupp will take you on an evening snowshoe adventure through the snow gums to reach his hidden eco-village and central tipi, before sharing some French cooking tips and assisting guests prepare their own French cheese fondue.

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.
