Set in the Swiss Alps near Aigle, the nine Buckminster Fuller–inspired geodesic domes at Whitepod's camp (which doubles as a base for both winter skiing and summer hiking) may be electricity-free, but they keep things cozy with plush organic bedding, sheepskin throws, and fireplaces fueled with sustainably harvested wood. A few steps away lies the main lodge, complete with dining room and spa. Since no roads lead to the camp, guests must walk or ski to get here. The reward for this exertion: a private ski run, miles of hiking and snowshoe trails, and nothing but oil lamps to interrupt the stars.
