The Auberge Nordique, an adventure that lasts since 40 years!
It all began with the initiative of Arthur Lequay, a former teacher with a passion for the mountains. He was the driving force behind the development of cross-country skiing in Grand-Bornand. It was in 1970 that the cross-country ski school opened its doors and took the form of an association.
It is in this continuity that the Auberge Nordique was created in 1979 in the form of an association. Its vocation is to offer, to enthusiasts as well as to beginners, an ideal and warm place to stay and practice, in the exceptional setting of the Bouchet valley, in the heart of Grand-Bornand. We make it a point of honour to preserve what is our strength: a friendly atmosphere, simplicity, passionate teams and stays that adapt to your desires.
Guarantees of quality
Since 2007, L'Auberge Nordique has been a member of the Cap France federation and its sustainable tourism label "Chouette Nature". Cap France is a federation which, for more than 60 years, has defended associative, family, social, human, ecological and fair tourism. We share not only the same quality requirements, but also the same holiday philosophy: all-inclusive packages with activities and entertainment for all.
In 2004, Cap France created its Chouette Nature label, to highlight its commitment to sustainable and responsible tourism, respectful of nature and people. In 2011, the federation became the very first tourism organisation to be certified ISO 14001 thanks to this approach, making Chouette Nature a real unifying corporate project.
The whole team is mobilized every day through concrete actions to implement and promote this label in order to ensure that we are part of this process in the long term:
- Organisation of selective sorting and implementation of composting
- Elimination of individual packaging
- Offering and promoting organic or fair trade products
- Creation of a "Trees and nesting boxes" discovery trail
- No use of pesticides or weed killers
- Monitoring of water and electricity consumption, with the aim of reducing it
- Eco-compensating for travel... And many other small everyday environmental actions and gestures!
