Win A Week In A Swiss Mountain Hut
Escape from civilisation with ten mates by winning a Switzerland Tourism facebook competition.
Posted: 1 June 2011
We spent a few days in the Swiss mountains last summer – have a look at our Eiger 'holiday snaps' – and were blown away by the amazing mountain scenery and warm Swiss hospitality. Now you too could spend a week in the Alps along with your mates thanks to a new Facebook-based competition.
First prize in the online promotion being run by Switzerland Tourism, is a week in a remote mountain hut in the canton of Uri, south of Lake Lucerne. It's being pitched as a way of escaping from the pressures of modern life, with no internet or mobile phone reception, but it's also a cracking prospect for walkers and mountaineers.
The hut is situated by a beautiful mountain lake and there's loads of walking close by and best of all, you can bring along ten Facebook friends to share your time at the hut.
To take part, head on over to www.facebook.com/MySwitzerland and watch the film featuring Sebi and Paul, two bearded old Swiss codgers who will tell you whether you could use a holiday from the internet...
It made us smile anyway... And yes, strangely enough, we do need a holiday from the internet, though maybe not with Sebi and Paul...
