Grindelwald at the end of December

Dear Travellers,

Is there a company in Grindelwald that has snow mobile hire / excursions please? Are there any particular activities not to miss in this area during the week of Christmas? Many thanks . ELP

Hi EL P

There are no snow mobiles allowed here. They are too noisy. You can do tours with snow shoes or with skis - see http://grindelwald.ch/en/Welcome -.

I would recommend to make your reservations quickly for the Christmas week. Grindelwald will be very busy that time of the year.

Normally at Christmas time, from the Saturday before Christmas to the Saturday at the end of New Years' week - this year from 21 December to 4 January - hotels and apartments require at least a one week booking, and some ask for 2. As Pore says, it is important to make reservations as soon as you know you want to be here. it is very high season...

While public use of snowmobiles is not allowed, you will see some being used by mountain restaurants to get their supplies up. These are not for rent! What you can rent, in some resorts, is a quad bike. verbier has these (and I wish they didn't - they make as much noise as snowmobiles!!) Since the rules regarding most transport are Cantonal, I am not sure if Bern allows quads or not.

Thanks so much for this update. Yes, our bookings are in process .. all good. I can understand why the snowmobiles aren't permitted. We're sure to have fun. Best wishes to you both. ELP.

Snowmobiles might not be on your agenda now, but Grindelwald has a lot to offer. If you haven't already done so, take a look at their website, and click on winteractivities...
