Tobogganing in Grindelwald

If high speed is your idea of fun, a toboggan run is an experience you cannot miss. You can find your adrenaline fix as you ride downhill, navigating the crazy curves of different mountain peaks. The longest toboggan run in Europe – Big Pintenfritz is an absolute must for sledding fans. The route is 15 kilometers long with a vertical descent of 1,600 meters — starting from Faulhorn sledding down to Grindelwald.

Dog sledge

Embark on an adventure filled journey with a ride towed by professional sled dogs. This year-round activity, suitable for all ages, is an amazing addition to any Swiss winter experience. It can be an ideal activity for people with reduced mobility. The moment when you experience the sled dogs’ speed, strength, and endurance will simply take your breath away. And of course, there’s always time for a cuddle with these loyal four-legged friends.

Olympic bob run in St. Moritz

A bobsleigh track located in the Engadin Valley is the world’s oldest and the only natural ice bob run still in operation. This 75-second ride is an absolute speed thrill as you touch 135km/hr moving downhill.

The frozen waterfall in Gstaad offers enthusiastic ice climbers with an adventure-packed challenge. The icy obstacles on the mountain walls not only put climbers to test but also gives them an adrenaline kick like no other.
