Hailing from the heart of the French Alps, founder Jean-Francois has always wanted to encourage others to discover the beauty of the mountains and experience nature. Since relocating to Australia in late 2014, he has been looking for the chance to share his passion for the outdoors and alpine activities.
“At first I was sceptical of the term “Alps” in Australia, but I love the mountains here, they are more accessible than in France and have an untouched feeling to them. With Alpine Nature Experience, I want to encourage more people to experience everything the high country has to offer".
Mount Hotham was a clear standout for his project due to the striking beauty of the mountain, hiking trails and overall atmosphere.
Alpine Nature Experience won Gold at the RACV VTIC Tourism Award for unique accommodation in 2019.
They are also a proud member of 1% For The Planet and pledge to give 1 per cent of all sales to environmental organisations.
