Switzerland’s Le Grand Bellevue launches ‘wild wellness experience’

This summer, Le Grand Bellevue, in Gstaad, Switzerland, will introduce a new four-night ‘wild wellness experience’.

Set to launch in June 2018, the programme will see guests test their fitness as they swim, cycle and run through a series of mountain pursuits, before indulging in wellness experiences, including mountainside massages and a heli-yoga trip.

The programme kicks off with a wild swimming session in one of Gstaad’s picturesque mountain lakes, and subsequent days will see guests mountain-biking along the region’s extensive network of vertiginous cycle trails, and trail running through the hills of the Bernese Oberland, all accompanied by Le Grand Bellevue’s local guides.

Fitness-focused challenges will be interspersed with al-fresco indulgence: athletic pursuits will be followed by secluded mountainside massages, and Le Grand Bellevue’s Michelin-starred chef, Urs Gschwend, will lead guests in foraging for nourishing Alpine ingredients such as wild strawberries, porcini mushrooms and edible flowers, followed by a healthy cooking class.

At the end of the programme, guests will enjoy a unique heli-yoga trip, soaring above the mountain passes aboard a private helicopter before unwinding with a tranquil mountain-top yoga session.

The new programme is designed to build upon Le Grand Bellevue’s extensive, recently revamped wellness offering. The 3,000sq m Le Grand Spa offers 17 wellness experiences, including a new hay sauna, ice fountain and infrared sauna, plus Himalayan salt grotto, Finnish sauna and laconium.

The exclusive Swiss partner of organic British skincare brand Bamford, Le Grand Spa offers a wide variety of treatments, as well as high-tech facial and body treatments from Cellcosmet.
