The Complex Guide to Riding the Rails in Switzerland

Gliding and Scooter Biking Down the First Mountain in Grindelwald

We took six-seat gondolas on the way up First Mountain. We headed pretty high up because we made four different stops before finally reaching the top. Once there, we went for a hike and then had lunch. The way back down the mountain was probably the most fun I had on the whole trip. From the top of First down to Schrecukfeld, we were individually strapped into a suspended cable called the First Flyer, and then glided down. It was very similar to a zipline. The rest of the way down we rode these scooter-bikes that go pretty fast considering the paths leading down the mountain. I had to brake pretty frequently to ensure that I didn’t crash and to make sure I made turns.
