Scooter biking on the Niederhorn

What could be finer than riding down a mountain on a scooter bike? 

At the Vorsass intermediate station, you can hire a scooter bike and coast down into the valley: on either the speedy six kilometre-long “Direttissima” route or the twelve kilometre-long “Flanierama” route. The “Direttissima” takes you directly to your destination, while the more gentle “Flanierama” option passes via Bodenalp, Rischeren and Waldegg through the extended village back to the valley station. So whether you opt for the fast or the leisurely route, you’re sure to feel fantastic as you head downhill on the looping trails with the breeze in your face!
