If you thought fondue was boring think again! We’ve talked about dining in a ski gondola in Zurich before but never at altitude. The clever people At “Fondue in the Sky” in Villars, Switzerland,  have come up with the ultimate fun Swiss idea – having a fondue in a gondola high above the Swiss mountains!

Celebrating Villars 150 Year Anniversary

The event is a celebration of 150 years of Villars as a ski resort and takes place on Saturday 25th February at the Roc d’Orsay télécabine station and begins at 6.30pm. There are 60 cabins, each seating 6 people and these “private dining rooms” will take the diners for a fondue with a difference which will last around 1hour 45 minutes.

Already it’s earned the award “Unique Dining Location for 2017” by the Luxury Travel Guide.

Fondue at Altitude

You’ll be dining with spectacular views across the 4,809m Mont Blanc and there will be charcuterie, white wine, kirsch and dessert in addition to the famous high altitude fondue! And don’t worry, the cabins will all be running at a much slower speed than usual especially for the occasion.

The Ideal Christmas or Valentine’s Present

So if you’re stuck for a Christmas present with a difference – or maybe want to buy it as a late Valentine’s gift don’t wait too long as there is only space for 360 people and this event has already attracted a lot of interest not just in Switzerland but all over the world!

Tickets and Details

The tickets are priced at CHF 85 per person (children CHF 70) and you can purchase them on the Fondue In The Sky website here.
