This Winter Follow Hrithik’s Footsteps & Get Back to Nature in Switzerland

Well it’s that time of the year again when everyone wants to take off and spend this beautiful holiday season with their loved ones. And what better place to venture to than picturesque yet adventure packed Switzerland. If you don’t believe us, just ask Hrithik Roshan who is all set to take off to the Swiss Alps with his sons for a fun-filled Skiing trip this winter. Some of the best places in the world to experience this sport are Zermatt, St Moritz, Davos-Klosters, Gstaad, Engelberg and Grindelwald. These alpine resorts are synonymous with skiing and for good reason – they offer some of the most varied terrain in the Swiss Alps Winter in Switzerland has a charm of its own when the ground is white and the air is crisp.

It’s a perfect winter wonderland experience with twinkling lights and the Christmas markets, ice rinks and more. While Hrithik and his kids enjoy their time skiing, snowboarding and chilling (not literally) in the snow-clad mountains, here’s a couple of breath-taking activities that will ensure the best winter vacation that you can enjoy during winter in Switzerland:

Tobogganing

Tobogganing is a fun filled activity of zipping down a hill or other slope on a wooden sledge. This cool and easy ride will get your heart beating faster as you slide amidst the snow-white winter landscapes. The toboggan run at Grindelwald in Switzerland’s Bernese Alps is at a distance of 15 kilometres with a vertical drop of 1,600 metres – making Big Pintenfritz the longest toboggan run in Europe.

Olympic Bob Run

The Olympic bob run at St. Moritz-Celerina is the oldest bobsleigh track in the world. It is the only bob run that is naturally refrigerated and built from scratch every year. First constructed in 1903 and officially opened on New Year's Day 1904, the construction of the track requires a lot of experience and sense of proportion. There are minimal changes in the alignment every year and every curve in the ground is levelled out. About 15'000m3 snow and 7'000m3 water is needed to construct the track. That being said, the Olympic Bob Run is definitely worth a try when in Switzerland.

Glacier Bungee Jumping

Only the most daring and adventurous soul can leap into Swissness by jumping off a cliff to try Glacier Bungee Jumping. The Grindelwald glacial gorge at a height of 85 metres is perfect for those fearless adrenaline seekers that just want to experience it all in life. It’s a mix of nature, adventure, excitement, danger and thrill all packed into one awesome sport.

Glacier Trekking

For those who love hiking and trekking, they can opt for glacier trekking under the care of an excellent guide. In Interlaken, the mountain guides take you through the facts about glaciology and environmental changes while you explore the waterfalls, mountain brooks and wild flowers. This is a perfect activity for family and friends to round out a Swiss vacation.

Igloo Village

Apart from the activities, one can cuddle up in complete privacy by staying in a romantic igloo. It’s a whole different feel to be in a beautifully located rugged village with a breath-taking view of the central Swiss Alps. The Engelberg igloo village can be reached quickly and easily from Lucerne, Zurich, Basel and Bern. If you do not want a fancy night in the ice palace, you can just grab a drink at the igloo bar and have a feel of the igloo life.

Switzerland is a spectacular place to try out off-beat sports. But even if sports are not really your thing you can always just relax and rejuvenate at a spa or a hot spring, go visit a chocolate factory or the Christmas markets. In Switzerland, there’s something for everyone. So, make your winter a better one and get ready for paradise on Earth… Cause in Switzerland you can but you don’t have to.
