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 zoom down into the valley with Rocky the bold ibex or his friend Happy. Choose from the quick six-kilometre “Rocky Run” or the twelve-kilometre “Happy Trail”. The “Rocky Run” takes you directly to your destination, while the more gentle “Happy Trail” option passes through Bodenalp, Rischeren and Waldegg, through the extended village and 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!
