About Us

Outdoor Interlaken is an international team of outdoor recreation and adventure sports enthusiasts.  All tour guides from Outdoor Interlaken are proven experts in their field. Outdoor Interlaken AG places a strong emphasis on only recruiting experienced guides. Each guideis required to be certified by SOA and complete the SOA training courses and examination. In certain cases, foreign certifications are recognized as equivalent.  Each guide is required to attend a CPR course each season, and internal guide refresher courses are made at the beginning of each summer. The majority of our international team have been working for several seasons in Interlaken and have a detailed understanding of the area and the special features.

Safety

Safety is our highest priority. All adventure activities contain a certain degree of risk. We minimize this risk through systematic control of the three main influencing factors: competence of the guides, monitoring of the environment and standard of equipment. Outdoor Interlaken is certified by the Swiss standard «Safety in Adventures» and our Risk Management concept is audited annually by the SQS.
