Torchbearer Students Christmas Break

December 16th 2022 – January 1st 2023

We open our place over Christmas for Bible-School students from various English speaking European Torchbearer Centres, to either finish off their stay in Europe in a unique way or spend a fun time during their Christmas break along with others!

What to expect

This will be a great opportunity to enjoy fellowship and a fun time along with your friends and get to know students from other Torchbearer Bible School centres!
Chasa Perspectiva is located in the beautiful Engadin valley in a small mountain village called Lavin and offers the perfect setting to relaxe, reflect on what God has been teaching you and to recharge. There are also lots of opportunities for outdoor activities either right in town or very close by, such as down-hill and cross-country skiing, sledding, snow-shoeing or going sight seeing in the charming historical villages in the area. We also have an ice rink right beside our house to play hockey!

We won’t be offering any actual program during this time and you students will have to organize yourselves! Breakfast will be provided and included in the price of your stay. Optional bag lunches are also offered. Supper you will have to cook together yourselves and we can offer you a ride about twice a week to the next bigger super market. There is also a small store in the village with a fairly big variety of food, plus a nice bakery and a restaurant/cafe.

Here is the link to the nearby Ski resort in Scuol, only 20min away from our place. We have quite a variety of winter gear that we offer for free to students. No guarantee though that we will have the perfect size for you! We have a few sets of decent skis and boots as well as lots of sleds, some sets of cross country skis and a few pair of snow shoes. Any needed gear for skiing can also be rented right at the ski resort. 

Accommodation

During the first week we can offer room for a maximum of 24 people in our two accommodations, during the second week from Christmas to New Years we only have the middle floor available for a maximum of 10 people. Here the link to our group accommodation on the top floor  “il Palantschin”  and the middle floor “Plan Sura”
