SwisSkiSafari

The origins

Why ‘safari’? At the birth of Swisskisafari 11 years ago, people questioned our use of the word ‘safari’, asking curiously where all the Alpine giraffes and elephants were hiding. Fast forward a decade, and things have changed significantly.

The Birth of a New Concept. The safari concept originated during an avalanche training course undertaken by founder, Danielle. Moving around a section of the alps observing snow formations, each day saw a different destination and each night was spent in a different hotel. The freedom of movement and the sheer amount of ground covered during that week started Danielle thinking about what an incredible European Alpine experience should be like.

Spending each day far from the groomed slopes on a pure, magical, adventure amidst chamois and alpine birds gave the group a real sense of connecting to nature far from the man-managed runs.
