Hiking and Climbing Tours

Glacier Canyon Grindelwald

An impressive masterpiece of nature, the Glacier Canyon was formed by the lower Grindelwald glacier, which over time carved its way through the rock in this area. Sadly the lower glacier no longer exists, but the canyon itself is now thriving as a popular destination for a unique sensory walk through its exposed rock galleries and tunnels. The rushing water cascades freely from the mountains into the Lütschine River below, sometimes causing a sudden rush of wind through the canyon and a rapid temperature flux as rays of light reflect along the steep walls.   The newly built attraction is divided into six themes: Coincidence, Formation, Geology, Water, Glacier and Myth. An interesting experience for all ages of visitor, the Glacier Canyon is an ideal, easy-access tourist destination. Its accessibility in all weather conditions also makes it a convenient stop for short tour programs. One of the highlights of this attraction is the 170 m2 SPIDERWEB which spans the canyon, providing visitors with a thrilling net platform to scramble, walk or crawl on, seven metres above the roaring Lütschine River.

Grindelwald Indoor Ropes Park

Under the roof of the ice hall both young and old can balance, climb or fly across the sometimes rather wobbly and challenging courses.  The five different courses contain 40 elements based on the theme of mountaineering and offer many highlights such as: negotiating the giant icicle, flying through the air in the haulbag, or swinging across the daring Hinterstoisser Traverse.  Use of the Indoor Rope Park requires no particular level of fitness. All users of the Indoor Rope Park will be supplied with the necessary equipment and instructed by the staff.
