Whitepod: HyperEfficient Alpine Retreat

White Pod: HyperEfficient Alpine RetreatWhitepod is a zero-impact camp for ten guests situated over 1700m high in the Swiss Alps. It consists of five portable pods on platforms, which are removed in spring and leave absolutely no trace. The emphasis is on comfortable accomodation close to nature without negative environmental impacts.

Access is by ski or snowshoes only. There are no cars. No buses. No hotels. Nothing at all in fact, apart from the scenery of the Alps.

A creation of Swiss local, Sofia de Meyer, the pods are dome tents with wood burning stoves. Solar and rechargeable energy is used for lighting, sustainable local wood is used for heating and Ecover products are used for cleaning. Fresh local or organic meals are prepared by a chef. Sofia aims to completely eliminate all the camp’s carbon dioxide emissions, for full Ecotourism accreditation.
