If you’re an adrenaline junky than Interlaken HAS to be at the top of your bucket list. Literally translated as “between two lakes”, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, and surrounded by the beautiful Swiss Alps, Interlaken is the perfect backdrop for all things adventure. To get your heart racing, here’s what Interlaken has to offer:
The extreme of all extremes. Free falling at 120 mph towards the Swiss Alps will definitely give you the rush you’re looking for.
Hangliding & Paragliding.
Not as extreme as jumping out of an airplane, hangliding and paragliding still give you the amazing views of the Swiss Alps, at a fraction of the price.
White Water Rafting.
Experience the rivers of Interlaken in a high speed adventure from start to finish. Be ready to face the crisp waters of Switzerland.
For a calmer outdoor activity, this is for you. Guided tours are the perfect way to explore the lakes and enjoy the view.
Zipline & Ropes Course.
Get tethered into a line and maneuver your way through a variety of rope courses and zipline between trees up to 20 meters above the ground.
Of course, a hike through the gorgeous Swiss Alps will be on your itinerary. Interlaken offers a wide variety of trails that are perfect for both the avid climber and the beginning tourist. Once you’ve spent a few hours hiking through the trails, be sure to treat yourself to some delicious Swiss Chocolate.
