On the water – the strongest element

Feel the power of water in the Interlaken holiday region. Climb through majestic gorges on a canyoning outing. Go river rafting and paddle through foaming rapids. Skim over Lake Brienz on a jetboat, passing thunderous waterfalls – then, for a change of pace, take a leisurely tour of Lake Thun by canoe or SUP. Wakesurfing and sailing on the lake give the impression of the open sea. Water is life – and Interlaken is surrounded by water. No wonder the range of experiences on offer is practically limitless.

Winter activities – conquer a winter wonderland

In winter, the mountains and lakes transform into a wonderful world of snow and ice; the only sound is the crunch of snow beneath your snowshoes. Discover winter hiking trails commanding superb views of snow-laden landscapes. A winter kayaking tour of Lake Brienz is a magical experience. Action-packed, enjoyable, homely – that’s winter in the Holiday Region Interlaken. Speedy descents of ski slopes and toboggan trails, breathtaking ski tours of untouched mountain peaks and beautifully prepared cross-country trails passing through fir forests all await.
