TOP 5 Winter Activities to have Snow Fun in Switzerland

Perfect ski slopes, breathtaking mountains and luxurious SPAs with the view to the snowy Alps. All of this is about Switzerland. If you already tried all traditional ways to have winter fun in Switzerland, we propose to try tobogganing or dog sledging.

Toboggaging in Grindewald

Grundstrasse 32
3818 Grindelwald

Tobogganing is a great winter fun for both: the young and the old ones. In Switzerland, you can experience the longest toboggan run in Europe. It is the Big Pintenfritz located at the summit of Faulhorn (2,680m). The toboggan run leads from the Faulhorn via Bussalp down to Grindelwald over a distance of 15 km. Length, adrenaline and superb views!

Ice Skating in Davos

Camping Sur En
7554 Scuol

Most of the Swiss cities and mountain ski resorts have an ice rink with temporary food stands (fondue! Le vin chaud!) and skates rentals. However, the first natural ice rink was opened in Davos Klosters in 1870. It is the biggest one, which hosted numerous international art and speed skating championships. If you want to try something new, then there is Engadin Ice Trail. It is a 3 km ice skating trail, running in a circuit along the River Inn from Sur En near Sent.

Dog sledding in Switzerland

Thyon, Valais, Switzerland

Dog sledding is definitely an exciting way to view the Swiss Alps from a different angle. The resorts around St. Moritz, Davos, Zermatt and Interlaken offer this unique experience. Take a tour with the team of huskies under snow-covered trees and through snow-clad forests.

Snowshoeing in Switzerland

Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the beauty of Alpine winter landscapes at your own pace. It does not require any type of professional experience and can be done by everybody who can walk. Enjoy terrific trails through forests, wide snowfields, and impressive peaks. Choose a tour or do it on your own. Some guided hikes can include a meal of local specialties in a cozy café or alpine hut.

A wonderful way to experience Switzerland’s fabulous winter scenery is a relaxing journey on a board train. The Glacier Express is perhaps Switzerland’s most scenic and famous train ride. Travelling between the ski resorts of Zermatt and St. Moritz via Chur, Andermatt and Brig, you will cross through 300km of the Swiss Alps over nearly 300 bridges and through nearly 100 tunnels. En route, you will watch incredible views of the Alps in all their glory as well as the Solis and Landwasser viaducts, the Rhine Gorge and the Oberalp Pass.
