Do you want to give a dream holiday and green experience in the Alps?
Those who receive the Gift Card can use it to book a stay in thousands of eco-friendly hotels in the Alps.
In this way, they will be able to discover fascinating landscapes, learn about new traditions, and experience first-hand life in soft mobility, among experiences with snowshoes, riding on an electric bike, and carriage rides. Experience so all the wonder of the mountains and the Alps.
A really thoughtful gift
To argue that there is nothing better than giving a special and authentic experience it’s also science: some Californian studies show that experiential gifts strengthen relationships between those who give and those who receive and make people happier, to an extent much larger than material objects. This happens because experiences give pleasure not only when we live them, but also during programming and above all later when we remember and tell them.
Already aware of the infinite benefits of nature and in particular of the mountains, in recent months we have learned even more how important it is for us and our well-being to dive into the woods, breathe clean air, explore the world around us and live extraordinary moments. And we have realized more than ever how important it is to live in harmony with the environment. A gift that offers the possibility of experiencing a sustainable holiday and that at the same time reduces waste and safeguards the ecosystem seems to us the perfect gift.
