Red & Blue Groups: Chocolate Factory & Gruyères

12th July 2021

The Red and Blue groups had a fantastic day discovering the delights of the Cailler Chocolate Factory and the Swiss town of Gruyères today.

First up, at the Cailler Chocolate Factory we witnessed every step in the Swiss chocolate making process (the tasting room was everybody’s favourite!). With our bags full of chocolatey treats from the gift shop, we hopped back on the coach and headed for the picture postcard town of Gruyères.

Paolo, Clemente, Julian, and Riccardo went with Philip to see the impressive castle at the top of the hill, whilst the rest of us toured the town and picked up souvenirs. Those who returned to basecamp early were treated to a fantastic show by local actors. Soon enough, with bags full of cheese and chocolate, we jumped back on the coach to head back to Torgon.

What a fantastic day!
