Alpe Selvaccia

Otro Elements was named after Val d’Otro, a remote alpine valley at the base of the Monte Rosa Massif. That's where the entire story began. It’s a place where time stood still, completely disconnected from civilization and void of worldly luxuries. For many years, this was the prime backdrop for all our five-day expeditions.


Now, after 6 wonderful years of running over 30 expeditions in our beloved Val d’Otro and seeing hundreds of people rediscover themselves, it happened. We encountered an ‘up for sale’ mountain with three small mountain lodges and over 22 hectares of property, large plots of woodlands, grassy meadows and a private water-source. Believe it or not, we managed to purchase this mountain, right behind Otro, overlooking the Monte Rosa. Alpe Selvaccia, our own back-to-basics Retreat Center. Want to learn more about our story?
