Ever feel like doing something totally out of the ordinary for your vacation – or better yet, for your honeymoon? Or have you simply wanted to feel like you’re a VIP just for the sake of it? Well, the Gstaad Palace, a luxury hotel located in the center of Gstaad, a small town in Switzerland at the foot of the Alps is offering eager couples the chance of a lifetime!
Seeing the Alps is something that not everyone has the chance to experience and what better way to explore the Matterhorn, otherwise one of the most well-known mountains in Switzerland, than by helicopter! In this amazing holiday package, you will be airlifted in style to the top of a 3000-meter high peak to enjoy a lovely champagne lunch with views that are difficult to put into words.
The journey starts with a serving of delicious champagne aperitif as your helicopter takes off and starts flying towards your destination on top of the Matterhorn. As you pass through the Alpine landscape, you’ll see the many beautiful mountain tops and well-loved ski slopes in the area. You’ll then also get to hover above the beautiful, post-card town of Zermatt before heading to Refuge l’Espace – an old style mountain lodge where you’ll land to enjoy your champagne picnic 3000 meters above sea-level.
When you land, the first thing you’ll notice is just how utterly serene and peaceful the surrounding environment is. If ever there was a place to enjoy a picnic, this would be it – and what a picnic! The meal consists of all the luxurious Swiss comfort foods you need to keep yourself warm in this weather.
Hot sausages, truffled scented cheese, and roasted potatoes will definitely hit the spot and keep out the winter chills. But don’t forget to leave room for the tarte Tatin which makes a wonderful dessert for the meal. Thankfully, when you return, you can rush off to the hotel spa to get warm and cozy in a sauna and unwind knowing you saw something truly spectacular!
