Alps, Lakes and The Happy Pear

Luzern, Switzerland

September 17th - 24th, 2022

Alps, Lakes and The Happy Pear

The Swiss Alps, crystal clear lakes for as far as the eye can see, a stunning historical town and Steve and Dave from The Happy Pear; what more could you ask for in an international vegan adventure?

In 2022 we will be embarking on another inspiring holiday experience, this time from our home base at Hotel Beau Sejour in historical Luzern, Switzerland. Excursions will include hikes through the alps, vegan grilling on an open fire, a trip to a Swiss spa and a boat cruise on the Vierwaldstättersee (there will not be a test on German pronunciation).

We are also thrilled to be joined by the inspiring Steve and Dave Flynn from The Happy Pear, who will host a cooking demo and of course radiate their infectious charm throughout the week. 

Have you ever wanted to pretend you were Maria from The Sound of Music? Well this is your chance to frolic through the alps with some very inspiring vegans and a fantastic group of your brand new life-long friends.
