Anifor is located in Zinal in the Val d’Anniviers, in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. Zinal is a village at an altitude of 1670 m surrounded by some of the highest mountains in the Alps. This authentic mountain village is one of those places which force admiration.
It is the ideal setting for concentrating on your studies and relaxing in a resplendent nature with endless sporting possibilities, in summer and winter alike.
Zinal is known for its famous Sierre-Zinal Race, also known as the Race of Five 4000, considered one of the most beautiful mountain races in the world, and which is to mountain running what the New York Marathon is to marathon running.
Recognized teachers and speakers
Our theoretical courses will be given by the teaching team of the Hotel Management School Geneva, which has extensive experience in the field of hotel training, recognised both by professionals in the hotel and catering industry and by organisations in the world of work.
The professors and lecturers are up to date with the latest trends as they all come from the hotel industry where they have held executive or general management positions.
On a regular basis, a working professional comes to give specific training in a particular field in order to vary the educational model. The Association des clefs d’Or Suisse and the Association des Gouvernantes générales de Suisse come to give a one-day course at the Centre Anifor in Zinal.
