As the winter months encroach and we begin to day dream about that heart warming winter scene, snow capped mountains and blazing log fires, why not top of that picture perfect scene with a group of friends huddled around a fondue pot guzzling hot cheesy laden bread and a good bottle of wine.

Where can one get this perfect winter scene and the ultimate fondue experience? Look no further than the land of milk, honey and cheese.

Yes that's right Switzerland has got it going on when it comes to fondue. And whilst you may have tried fondue, have you tried in in a gondola? in a tuktuk? in a tent? in a tram? well now's your chance to indulge in your ultimate fantasy fondue.
