If your ideal holiday is one that’s totally action-packed and full of eye-popping scenery and stunning nature, you need to get acquainted with Interlaken and Grindelwald in Switzerland. The beautiful region is renowned for its incredible mountains, massive lakes and endless opportunities for adventure, making it an ideal hot spot for anyone looking for an adrenaline rush.

A hike with a view

During winter, it’s all about alpine and cross-country skiing, but for the truly brave, ski touring the high summits is a must. After a day on the slopes, join the local and international crowd for an evening activity like night sledding followed by a warming fondue dinner or try raclette rafting, where you can enjoy the Swiss delicacy while bobbing on a river raft boat.


Summers in Interlaken and Grindelwald are just as fun. There’s canyoning, whitewater rafting and impressive glacier hikes, as well as a family fun tree-top ropes park and jet boat rides on Lake Brienz, where you can speed through the waters and take in the breathtaking scenery of the Swiss Alps. But for true thrill seekers, the highlight of the summer is the spectacular canyon swing in Grindelwald: you’ll jump down a 90-meter wall and swing between the narrow gorge walls at almost 120km/h. Yikes!
