Epic Europe

AROSA

Switzerland

Hidden up a dead-end valley between Lenzerheide and Davos, Arosa is a throw-back to another era; a family-friendly resort with great off-piste powder skiing access, a perfect mix of hotel styles, and a hospitable vibe that is emblematic of the canton of Graubunden. First put on the map in the 1880’s as a wellness resort and sanitarium, it then gained notoriety in 1894 from a ski story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, about a descent from Davos to Arosa finishing with lunch at the Hotel Seehof, still one of our favorite hotels in the village.

 

From kilometers of trails for nordic skiing to the long runs off the Weisshorn, to the backcountry skiing that links the resort to Lenzerheide, new skilifts completed in 2012, there is terrain for everyone. One of the best events in Arosa takes place each full moon, when they open the cablecars to the top of the Weisshorn for “Mondschein” skiing, lit only by the moonlight. The pistes are prepared after the normal closing hours, then re-opened at 7pm, and all mountain restaurants and bars open up again for dinner. The final run down around midnight can be quite an adventure.

 

From the historic Seehof to the 5* Arosa Kulm hotel, there is every sort of accommodation possible, but our favorite is the Tschuggen Grand 5*, with the award-winning spa designed by architect Mario Botta, recognized as one of the best in the Alps.

  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
