Who wouldn’t love an adrenaline pumped trip to Switzerland? From skiing, bungee jumping to cliff-hanging and mountain hiking, Switzerland has a good share of adventures to check out. Here’s a list of the top adventurous things to do in Switzerland for an audacious Swiss exploration! Book with us and have a blast!
1. Oeschinen Lake – Toboggan run
The Oeschinen Lake in the Bernese Oberland is one of the most eye-captivating mountain lakes in Switzerland. During winter, the lake would freeze and pave way for ice fishing among the locals. Apart from the regular ski trails and backcountry skiing, you could try out the toboggan run. Toboggan is a narrow vehicle used for gliding on ice or snow. While you are indulging in thrill scenes, don’t miss out on enjoying a splendid view of Doldenhorn mountains.
2. Geneva, Lucerne, Interlaken – Paragliding
Paragliding is an adventure sport where you get to glide your way out in the air with the help of a tandem pilot. When you are soaring up and gliding smooth, lose yourself and capture the moments by taking in the breathtaking beauty around you.
Where to paraglide?
Geneva – Salève mountain region
Lucerne- Lake Lucerne region
Interlaken- Jungfrau region
3. Rhine – Waterfalls
The Rhine Falls – Europe’s largest waterfalls – is where you need to head to if you’re looking for an adrenaline- pumped activity. A boat trip or an unruffled walk here gives you memories for life. Don’t panic if your ears start throbbing thanks to the roar of the falls. Take a stroll around the landscape and climb on top of the rocks to grab a view of the raw beauty of nature.
Important tip: Wear sturdy shoes and thick sweaters!
4. Titlis – Cliff Walking
Titlis Cliff Walk will give you an experience of a lifetime during your Switzerland travel. This 100m long bridge is suspended at about 3000 metres above sea level. Known as the highest suspension bridge in Europe, this stunning piece of engineering was built as a tribute to celebrate the Engelberg-Gerschnialp cableway’s 100th anniversary.
When you are halfway through the bridge, you can see the Titlis glacier park 500 metres below you. Apart from the beautiful scenery here, take some time out to explore the Glacier caves. The ski lift over the peaks and Rotair gondola take you to the top of Titlis, while giving you spectacular views along the way.
5. Contra Dam – Bungee jumping
Show off your flying stunts just as James Bond did in the Goldeneye movie! Yes! We are talking about bungee jumping off Contra Dam in Ticino. Standing tall at 220 meters above sea level, this spot is the highest bungee jump arena in the world. Contra Dam is also known as Locarno dam or the Verzasca. For the movie buffs, here’s another exciting fact about this dam! The nail-biting climax scenes of Bollywood hit ‘Dhoom 3’ and the grand introduction scenes in Kollywood blockbuster ‘Vivegam’ were shot here!
