This trip has been postponed. But please subscribe and stay tuned to this site for future group Chocolatours! And if there is a specific destination you’d like to go, do let me know and we will consider it in our chocolate travel planning.
Laderach has chocolate demonstrations at the Merkur shop in Zurich.
Together with Bucher Travel of Switzerland and Journey’s Travel of Winnipeg, Chocolatour has created a customized tour for chocolate lovers. We’ll pack our bags on March 29, 2014 and head to Switzerland for nine days of chocolate touring through Lucerne, Engelberg, Lausanne, Montreux, Gruyeres, Broc, and Zurich.
Fortunately, most of these locations are close to one another, so we’ll use Lucerne as our first stop for three nights, Lausanne as our second resting place for two nights, and Zurich as our hub for the final four nights.
The highlight of the trip will be a visit to the International Chocolate Salon in Zurich, where we will taste chocolate from around the world and enjoy chocolate art and fashions. What could be more exquisite?
As the maximum number of participants will be 16 including your host, Doreen Pendgracs, author of Chocolatour: A Quest for the World’s Best Chocolate, we’re asking that you contact Sheila Rempel at Journey’s Travel by January 17th to place your deposit on the package. This will reserve your spot on the tour.
If you live in Manitoba, please visit this link for the complete itinerary from Winnipeg.
If you live outside of Manitoba and wish to join the group in Switzerland for the chocolate tour, please visit this link for the international itinerary and some fantastic photos to get your taste buds tingling. (scroll down to the send event listing for the Chocolatour.)
This trip will be experiential travel at its best. We’ll learn how to make chocolate and cheese, we’ll sample some fine wines and cuisine, and we’ll experience some of Switzerland’s most beautiful places. Join us!
P.S. My apologies to any fellows who might be interested in this trip as this is a women-only tour.
