Switzerland 2017

Switzerland Day 8

Written by Media Team

This morning, after a quick resupply from the local shop, the group headed out on the bus to Kandersteg.

Once we arrived at Kandersteg we boarded the Oeschinensee cable car. After a short ride on the cable car we arrived at the top of the mountain. The explorers soon started racing down the toboggan track, although a few had some slower rides due to their own speed or being stuck behind apprehensive guides and guide leaders!

The toboggan track!

After everyone had sped around the toboggan track, we then went on a short walk to the Oeschinensee Lake itself. The explorers and leaders enjoyed a picnic lunch by the lake and even in the colder weather, the explorers managed to eat Swiss ice cream.
Rowing boats were then hired and everyone had a great 30 minutes of paddling around the lake.

Once all of the explorers and leaders were safely back on dry land, we headed back to the cable car and had a few more goes on the toboggans on route.

Back at the chalet, we had a lovely dinner followed by the biannual Switzerland quiz, including bonus lipsync round, of which we have video evidence!
