The picturesque resort of Grindelwald in the Bernese Oberland is a classic Swiss village with a bags of charm.

Grindelwald is ideal for novices thanks to the designated ‘Bodmi’ beginners’ area. There is extensive skiing for intermediates with links to Wengen and Murren, with fantastic off-piste and itinerary routes for advanced skiers. The infamous Lauberhorn World Cup downhill ski run is a great challenge for skiers in Switzerland and our mountain guides will oversee some fantastic heli-skiing when the conditions allow.

For off the slopes action there’s a range of winter sports including 90km of tobogganing runs.  If you’re after something more relaxing try a horsedrawn carriage ride. For those seeking an adrenalin kick zoom through the air at 80 km/h on the First Flieger – an aerial cableway included on your ski pass.
