The essence

The accommodation

We strive for good, clean and comfortable. So no hotel of a large chain but an appealing, regional hotel where attentive staff pampers us. In Switzerland and Italy we have selected 5 beautiful hotels that meet these criteria.

The food

This also applies to the food. The local food is in the center of attention and we enjoy eating among the local population. Nowhere does a cheese fondue taste better than in Switzerland..

The route

The Collen Challenge is for the most part held in Switzerland. We do make a trip to northern Italy, France or Austria every edition.

During The Collen Challenge there is a choice of a sporty and a relaxed route.
Both beautiful, but the sporty route is just a bit more challenging.
