Scooter fun on the Niederhorn for schools
Why not start your school trip on Lake Thun with a fascinating boat ride, passing picturesque lakeside settlements and historic castles?
Once you reach Beatenbucht, you’ll take the cable car to the Niederhorn mountain, from where you can admire the magnificent view of the mountains known as the “Three Stars”: the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. It’s then finally time for the fun of the descent by scooter bike. Choosing from two different routes, you can either speed from Vorsass to Beatenberg or coast down in a more leisurely fashion. Either way, you’ll enjoy the beautiful landscape.

The most fascinating aspect of orienteering is the opportunity it provides to independently plan the shortest route and experience the success of finding the markers. There are three different routes that are waiting to be discovered.
From July until late September, you can observe native wild animals every Thursday on a guided wildlife tour. A local wildlife expert will accompany your school group. On request, the wildlife observation tours can also be offered on other days.
