Epic Europe


Zurich - Uetliberg

Nestled at the foot of the Üetliberg, the newly renovated Atlantis reopened at the beginning of December 2015. This juxtaposition of urban luxury against the breathtaking natural backdrop of Zürich's neighboring mountain is truly unique for an Urban Hotel. Just 10 minutes from the center of Zurich the Atlantis offers an extensive spa, 2 restaurants, and the retro-modern interiors that whisk you back to the glamorous days of the 1970’s when the hotel was a frequent home for many Hollywood celebrities and Zurich locals.


FOOD & DRINK: The restaurants at Atlantis by Giardino are innovative and sometimes progressive, the cuisine is developed on an ongoing basis but never lose their ties to the region. The hotel is home to two different restaurants, and each is unique. Hide & Seek is modern, contemporary and inspired by the principles of Ayurveda. The Ecco Zurich has a reputation for unique culinary virtuosity blended with a purist approach to taste – awarded with two Michelin stars to prove it.


SPA: The Dipiù Spa is an oasis in Zurich, at 1500m2 the expansive wellness area offers indoor & outdoor swimming pools, lifestyle therapies, a sauna oases, gym facilities, relaxation areas, as well as the natural cosmetic line from Giardino founder Daniela Frutiger.


LOCATION: At the foot of "Zurich's Mountain", the Uetliberg. Atlantis by Giardino is an urban retreat that promises the vibe of the city intimately accompanied by the rhythm of nature: it is just a rabbit’s hop to the Üetliberg forest and a short 10 minute ride to the cultural hot spots, banks and boutiques of Zurich’s famous Bahnhofstrasse. Here, the calm of the forest and pastoral chime of distant cowbells goes hand in hand with perhaps the most urban view of Switzerland’s Alpine metropolis.

  • “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
  • "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

  • "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 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
  • "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
  • "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
