“The activities were absolutely fantastic and my son enjoyed every minute of them, particularly the glacier trip. He was also full of praise for the accommodation, food and the friendly atmosphere. As a parent, I was very impressed with the level of organisation and professionalism of everyone involved with Camp Suisse.”

 

Torgon less than ninety minutes by car from Geneva airport, and within an hour’s travel from the international cultural and recreational centres of Bern, Lausanne, Montreux, and Fribourg. Trains between Italy and points north of the Alps – Geneva, Paris, Brussels, Munich, Amsterdam, and London – stop at Aigle, just 25 minutes away by road. The surroundings provide vast opportunities for outdoor pursuits, team sports, alpine summer sports including hiking, mountain biking, climbing and husky dog sledding on the glacier; waterfront activities on Lake Geneva.
Facilities in Torgon include a full sized football pitch, which is a five minute walk through the forest from the Camp Suisse site. Torgon also boasts a superb pizzeria, café, and local shop. There is also a tourist office, which provides outdoor games, information on mountain biking routes with mechanical lifts and many marked walking trails. There is a small square in the centre of the village where local events are occasionally hosted, but in general the village is very calm, especially in the summer.
