Summer Retreat 2017

Our highly anticipated Summer Retreat is back! This time, in beautiful Locarno, Switzerland.

When and where?

3rd (Sunday) to 5th (Tuesday) of September 2017. We will stay at the heart of Locarno, a small town on the shore of Lago Maggiore, and the warmest place in Switzerland. This location provides for excellent opportunities to swim in the lake, to explore Locarno’s old town and the Sacred Mount Madonna del Sasso, to take a gondola up to Mount Cardada for great views of the region, and to hike in the nearby Verzasca valley with its pristine emerald-colored river.
