What people are saying about Ticino

Night Sledding - absolutely brilliant - worth every penny!

Out of all the activities we booked for our trip to Interlaken, this one by far surprised us the most. We got picked up from our Hotel in Interlaken right on time by a lovely guide, who took us directly to Outdoor Interlaken (it was only about 5 minutes away...we could have walked!). We signed in and got straight into a mini bus and was driven up to collect our sleds and to get the gondola. It was pitch black and the views of the lights from the town below and the stars above were incredible. The sled run was so much fun! We didn't have headlights, but each sledder wore a red light on their back so those behind could see them. Could be considered quite dangerous, but it added to the thrill and the whole experience. Be prepared to go very fast and to fall off a couple of times if you aren't so good at steering from the edge. Definitely a huge and unexpected rush of adrenaline after. We will be coming back and we will 100% be bringing more friends. Must do experience!

Just brilliant activity, practice in the best possible conditions. The guide was very friendly, good understanding! Along the way we were treated to magnificent views! I recommend this activity, unfortunately so much that we found it a bit short.
