Whitepod Camping in the Swiss Alps

Film report for german TV station

Luxury holidays in a tent

Have you ever spent a snowy winter night in a tent? Sounds uncomfortable, doesn't it? But it doesn't have to be. At least not if the tent is in the Swiss Alps and belongs to the Whitepod Hotel Resort. Even though it hadn't snowed as much as the Swiss are used to in Valais and at this time of year – everything was perfect for us!

They look like igloos that have perfectly adapted to the snowy landscape. The »Whitepods« offer peace, relaxation and a bit of seclusion from the stresses of everyday life. For the founders of the hotel tents, however, luxury does not mean waste. They belong to the »Eco Luxury« label, an association of high-quality holiday resorts that are committed to ecotourism. They pay attention to environmental protection, the use of renewable energies and the harmony of man and nature. It sounds familiar and a little worn out, but in this case it's worth taking a closer look.

TV travel report from the snowy Swiss Alps

Basiliscus Film meets Joris Barbotin, Managing Director of Whitepods. He shows us what makes Whitepods special and why a short stay at the resort is always worthwhile. We also talk to guests who enjoy a few days of peace and quiet in the pods during their winter holiday and we take a trip into the snow and show what the region around the pods has to offer.

Our camera team had two really exciting days of filming and we experienced what a luxury hotel is really all about: namely dedicated employees and an obliging boss, but also proud prices.
