Sledding in Switzerland is an adventure like no other. The Swiss Alps are a playground for the adventurous and they offer some of the best sledding in the world. Sledding Interlaken is a fun, family-friendly activity that can be done at any time of year by anyone. There are many places to sled in Switzerland and the Interlaken and Jungfrau region are one of the best with loads of options, guided trips and sledge-and-fondue experiences.
Sledding Interlaken and Jungfrau region
Sledding is a fun activity for everyone. It’s easy to do and learn so a great active way of enjoying the mountains by anyone. Take a cable car or train up to one of the many mountains around Interlaken and sled down from the likes of Kleine Scheidegg and Männlichen high above Grindelwald & Wengen or from the 360 degree panorama Niederhorn mountain. After a few hundred meters you will get the hang of steering with your feet while weight shifting slightly and the fun is unstoppable.
There are also many sledding options around Interlaken with Busalp, Alpiglen, Kleine Scheidegg, Männlichen, Mürren, Isenfluh/Sulwald and Niederhorn being the top choices. Night sledding is very popular too and can be done on select days on the previously mentioned mountains.
If you want to try sledding, I suggest going with someone else first so that you don’t get hurt or lost or signing up for a guided trip. Going down in a group is more fun too and you can try to race the others.
The Jungfrau region is one of the most popular places in Switzerland for sledging. This area has been named as one of the best places to sled in Europe by many travel magazines and websites due to its diverse sledding options. From the longest sledding track in Europe (Busalp with a whopping 16km) to gentle long runs in Mürren, steep sections on Männlichen and night sledding in multiple locations there is something for everyore. Next to that the Jungfrau region also offers fantastic skiing opportunities as well (how about the steepest ski run in the world on the Schilthorn for example!?) with amazing views of Lake the lakes of Brienz & Thun.
Traditionally an Interlaken sledding adventure is followed by a hearty and delicious cheese fondue meal and a glass of (mulled) wine. Try the fabulous Fondue Villa & Garden for a unique fondue experience.
