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).
Sledding and cheese Fondue
We will start by meeting at the top of the Maennlichen GGM cable car which can be reach either via Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen. After introducing ourselves and getting to know each other I will explain you how to steer the sledge and how to operate it safely with some good sledding techniques. Our sledge run will start from there and end in Holenstein station. This sledding run is a great opportunity for those who want to see the true beauty of the Swiss countryside. It offers beautiful views of the three world-famous mountains: Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau. After an exciting and fun hour of tobogganing, we will stop in my scenic secret spot to start our culinary experience. After introducing you to the history and the tradition of the legendary Swiss cheese fondue, I will start cooking this delicious dish for you. This live cooking will help you recreate this dish at home. Once our lunch will be finished, I will tell you more about swiss culture and traditions of this region. Our tour will end in Holenstein station as you will have the opportunity to return towards Grindelwald or the Lauterbrunnen valley. Now that you are confired sledgers you can go down this route again. If we have enough time, I'll join you and show you a second, faster one. Experience will take 2,5-3h. Tickets and sledge rental are not included. Descent route and meeting point may change.
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.

Off the beaten track in Interlaken
We will start off by taking the train to the village of Wilderswil. If you are not familiar with the region, please let me know and I will help you plan your route. We will follow the hiking trail along the Saxetenbach river through the Sytiwald forest. This trail is barely frequented by the locals or tourists, so you will get to immerse yourself completely in the mystical alpine forest domain. Once through the forest, we will arrive in the secluded Saxettal valley with Saxeten village at the center of it. This village is a breath of fresh air from the tourist Meccas of Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen. If you want to properly visit the village or buy local freshly made cheese, please count a detour of 1h - 1h30. After Saxeten we will continue hiking up through the forest to Abendberg - an abandoned hotel. From there we will enjoy one of the best views of Lake Brienz before going back down to Wilderswil. This is a mountain hiking trail, so good shoes are absolutely necessary. This is a round-hike and it will end at the same point where we started. I will plan the hike in accordance with local weather forecast and adjust the itinerary if necessary. If you are feeling confident, we may also take a slightly longer trail. The length of this hike is 19.46 km (12.09 miles) with a total ascent of 1’001 m (3’284 feet).
