Epic Europe



Montagne Alternative, is a tiny "hameau" of old farm barns, which have been lovingly renovated according to the strict Valais (alpine region in Switzerland) traditions, in the very peaceful village of Commeire, nestled on the side of the mountain above Orsières.


In winter there are several small ski resorts accessible by a short transfer: Vichères-Bavon 20 min, Champex-Lac 30 min, Verbier / Bruson 30 min. For outdoor aficionados, Montagne Alternative offers many activities straight from the village in a peaceful landscape: snowshoeing, ski-touring, hiking, mountain biking and many more. A peaceful setting in a natural environment, perfect for finding oneself and opening up to others. The breath-taking panorama over the highest peaks of the Mont Blanc mountain range alongside a quiet, small Swiss village nestled in the mountainside.


Seminars: The fully equipped work spaces are located in century-old buildings, recently refurbished in harmony with local heritage and offering spectacular views. 


Food & Drink: The small restaurant serves creative cuisine combining fresh garden and local produce in harmony with our health and well-being, and the restored carnotzet is perfect for intimate dinners amongst coworkers.

  • “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
  • "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 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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
