Foxtrail «Emma»

In search of the missing locomotive.

Join BLS on an exciting and modern treasure-hunt in Emmental and Entlebuch. Follow the tracks of the fox and find the missing locomotive.

Der Foxtrail Emma

The Foxtrail is a scavenger hunt through nature during which teams have to solve tricky puzzles and crack codes.

Foxtrail “Emma” is ideally suited for your next family outing, for company or club days out, seminars, school excursions, or simply as a way to spend time with friends. But be prepared to be puzzled! The clues are tricky and can only be solved with brains and team spirit.

Locomotive Emma has heard about the beautiful Emmental valley and the Emme River and is determined to visit the area that shares her name. She has set off to explore the area by herself. Join the fox on the search to find Emma. But beware: there are a few hurdles to overcome on the way. You’ll need to put your carpentry skills to the test and use your knowledge of the famous Emmental cheese. An old pumping station also needs to be put back into operation, and you can likewise prove your mettle as a train driver at the controls of a real locomotive.
