Grindelwald is the ideal starting point for mountain hikes and tours with a 300-kilometre network of perfectly developed trails. The high-altitude walk from Grindelwald-First along Lake Bachalp and on to the Schynige Platte is one of the best tours of the region.

Those who want to test their fitness can do so on 160 kilometres of mountain bike trails or by climbing, on the fixed-rope routes and high-altitude mountain hikes. The adrenaline levels soar for those who are adventurous on the First Flyer or the scooter bikes.
Guaranteed skiing thrills are provided by 160 kilometres of slopes and roughly 30 lifts reaching up to 2,500 metres above sea level of both the Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen and Grindelwald-First ski areas.
