Cambrian Adelboden, Switzerland

The Cambrian, Adelboden, Switzerland

Up in the Swiss Alps, the lesser known Adelboden is as remote as you can get. Talk to Swiss people and you might even get a “Where?” or “Wo?” – it’s three hours from Zurich, a complicated journey – but you can’t expect simple passage through this landscape.

In mountain-goat territory lies this small chalet town that is picture-postcard Swiss Alps – truly breathtaking views, all from the balcony of a room at the Cambrian. On the warmer side of the balcony doors, is a room you would expect, and more from a luxe ski-lodge. Snow-sport is clearly why you’d come here, but we also very quickly found the very zen underground spa and indoor pool.
