Adventure and fun with the backdrop of the pristine mountain scenery of the Bernese Alps is an experience not to be missed and one which you will be talking about for many semesters to come.
Switzerland is the world’s number two country for extreme sports and Interlaken is the center of it all. There are endless activities for adrenaline junkies looking for a thrill; skydiving from a helicopter, paragliding over Interlaken and free falling 300ft into a canyon attached to a rope.
Those who like to keep their feet firmly on the ground are not forgotten with many other activities such as hiking, quad biking, taking the mountain train to Jungfrau, the highest railway station in Europe, and a day trip to Grindelwald.

Day Trip to the Swiss Alps town of Grindelwald - €20
Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Includes bus transportation and free time to explore the town and surrounding scenery. This is the ideal place to get those Swiss Alps instagrams you've been dreaming of! Grindelwald is a picturesque ski town in the heart of the Jungfrau Region of the Alps. Take the gondola up to Grindelwald First where you can do the "First Cliff Walk", a see thru glass terrace, rising 45 meters above the void of the surrounding Alps. Once you've had this thrill, continue the adrenaline rush by taking a ride down the "First Flyer", an 800 meter zipline from First down to Shreckfeld, reaching speeds up to 84 km/hour. In summer months, ride mountain carts or trottibikes back down into the town. For those of you not indulging in extreme sports, find a quiet cafe and sip on a hot chocolate or hot mulled wine while taking in the beautiful scenery. A day in Grindelwald is the perfect opportunity to see more of what the Swiss Alps have to offer.
