Sledding and cheese Fondue
Meeting location is at the top of the Maennlichen GGM cable car. After introducing ourselves and getting to know each other I will help you to rent a sled from a nearby rental shop (intersportrental - Männlichen) and then I will explain you how to steer the sledge and how to operate it safely. Our first run will start from Männlichen and end close to Holenstein station, where we will start our culinary experience in my scenic secret spot. After introducing you to the history and the tradition of the legendary Swiss cheese fondue, I will start cooking this delicious dish for you. Once our lunch will be finished, we will continue our adventure towards Grindelwald Terminal by short gondola ride. Once arrived at Terminal, we will take the famous Eiger Express gondola. After 15 minutes of impression in incredible views , we will reach the top of the Eiger Glacier Station which is located at 2400m. Our second run will start from there. Now that you are confired sledgers, we will sled down towards the picturesque Kleine Scheidegg. This mountain pass is home to the oldest alpine hotel in Switzerland and is a great spot to finish the day looking at the 4000 meters peaks. Our tour will end up here as you will have the opportunity to go back towards either Grindelwald or the Lauterbrunnen valley. Our experience will take 3,5-4h depending on your sledding skills and weather.
FlywithFlo Paragliding near Lucerne Switzerland
We will take off from Mount Niederbauen for a Panorama flight (10-20 minutes) in Emmetten. If it's possible we will try to flight over the peak of Niederbauen. From there you have an amazing view over the lake Lucerne and to Gotthard, the main reach of the Alps. We can choose other take offs like Engelberg or Biehlen. It always depends on the wind for this day. There are a lot of different landing and takeoff places around. This is the reason cause Swiss is one of the best countries for paragliding and "hike and fly" tours. We can take off and land almost everywhere if the landowner allows it. The basic requirement for the start is that the passenger is able to walk a few steps because we have to accelerate for the start in order to take off. The landing is relatively easy, as the pilot and passenger straighten up and take a step before touching the ground. After landing there is the possibility to have a look and purchase photos and videos (cost 30 franks extra) made during the flight by the pilot. Other things to note: Costs for cablecar, parking, transfer are NOT INCLUDED to the price. Paragliding is not an extreme sport in Swiss by the opinion of the insurance. The possibility to get hurt is much lower than with skiing or driving a motorbike. There are more than 14000 active pilots in Switzerland.
Winter wonderland above Interlaken
The destination for this hike is the top of Niederhorn - a 2000 m (6400 ft) peak with excellent views of Interlaken and Lake Thun. We will first have to take a bus from Interlaken train station to the village of Beatenberg where the hike will start. Tickets included in the price of experience. From Beatenberg we will take the trail to the top of Niederhorn through the winter wonderland that the region turns into during the festive season. The trail will lead us along a natural reserve where, if we are lucky, we will be able to spot the Chamois - a local species of mountain goat. About half way we will take a snack stop at Unterburgfeld - an alpine farm which is closed during winter but otherwise serves as an excellent viewpoint for the region. For the last push towards the summit, we will go across the Güggis ridge to arrive just in time for lunch. After the meal it is time for the most amusing part of the experience! We will take the sleds back down to Beatenberg. If you don't feel confident on a sled, this part can also be done on foot. From Beatenberg we will grab a bus back to Interlaken. Other things to note I will plan the hike in accordance with local weather forecast and adjust the itinerary if necessary. Public transport and cable card tickets included. The length of this hike is 10 km (6.2 miles) with a total ascent of 800 m (2'625 feet).
