But if you never laid foot on frozen lands before, fear not. There are experienced professionals to guide beginners, teaching the best techniques to ride the white faced mountains down.
If heights aren’t your thing but you still crave for some direct contact with Mother Nature, gather your friends and head to the crystalline waters of Lake Brienz, which is the perfect spot for kayaking at this time of the year. In the middle of the tour, take a break for some tea and biscuits by the lakeside and recharge your batteries with the beauty of this outstanding scenario.
Sledding sure sounds awesome by default. But can you imagine the thrill of racing your friends downhill throughout the Alps of Interlaken, on tracks sculptured in snow, while the sun has long been gone? Emotion and excitement await at every corner on this hour long run. At the end, who wouldn’t fancy some traditional Swiss fondue to warm yourself up again?
