Why Do It In The Alps?
First of all, you're in the Swiss Alps! As you are ziplining you will be able to soak in the gorgeous scenery around you. The views are unbeatable and you won't be able to see views like them anywhere else. It really is dreamy and an experience like none other.
Another cool thing about ziplining the Alps is that you can do it year round. The summer is a nice time because you have beautiful weather, blooming flowers all around you and mountain cows grazing in the extremely green fields. The winter is also amazing (just dress really warm!) and the snow covered mountains are incredible.
What To Expect
This is a legit, big zipline. Not the kind your neighbor had in their backyard growing up! The zipline is more than 2,400 feet long and you will go up to 55 MPH while riding. There are 4 lines next to each other so you can go down at the same time as your friends, which makes it even better.
Ziplining is a bit pricey and will cost you around $50 - so just plan ahead for that! Honestly compared to other parts of the world, that's a pretty good deal.
Where Can I Do It?
Grindelwald, Switzerland is where you will want to go! Grindelwald is 2 hours away from Zurich, Germany and just 30 minutes up the mountain from Interlaken, Switzerland (a famous town).
