With wide tires for stability, front suspension for a smoother ride and disc brakes for downhill braking, an all-terrain gravity scooter is the perfect way to explore mountain trails in the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Jungfrau region.
After pickup from either of the Interlaken train stations, your hotel in Interlaken or one of seven local municipalities, you’re transferred to the charming town of Lauterbrunnen via the scenic Bernese Oberland. On arrival, your guide accompanies you aboard the mountain cable car, which ascends to the Grütschalp plateau. Drink in the enchanting Alpine landscapes during the 4-minute climb. Then disembark for a safety briefing before the real excitement begins.
From Grütschalp, you’ll ride for appox. 1.5 hours on your gravity scooter back to Lauterbrunnen. Whizz along mixed gravel and tarmac roads on this unique mode of transport, easy to use for anyone with basic biking skills. Admire panoramic mountain views of the famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau — the region’s crowning jewels. Watch the sun begin to slip behind the Jungfrau peak and feel your scooter accelerate as you make the 2,625-foot vertical descent, following your guide and making several scenic stops along the way.
Landing back in Lauterbrunnen, relax as your transport vehicle returns you to your original departure point.
