Fancy sleeping on the mountain without having to carry your bivouac ? And at the same time doing something original, away from the humdrum of the daily routine ? A sleepover on straw, yes please ! And after a night on a straw bale you don’t even have to make your bed again in the morning !
At the foot of the Mayen Peak, high above Leysin village, Mayen Refuge offers unusual sleepovers for the whole family. In preparation, all you need to do is spread out enough straw to create the most comfortable bed ever – at least for one night anyway !
Warning : we’re sleeping ! No straw fights here. After a gentle night listening to the lullaby of the cow bells, there is nothing quite like a hearty breakfast with local produce to set you up for the new day’s hike.
