Description

A kickbike is like a cross between a bike and a scooter, great fun to ride for people of all ages. From Sunnegga, the trail leads initially towards Tufteren, past ancient Swiss stone pine trees and tall larches. At Tufteren the track plunges into the lush mountain forest, and follows a giant zig-zag all the way down to the village of Zermatt.

 

  • Appropriate for children from age 9
  • Special family tickets
