Overview


It is a great way to spend a long weekend in summer! A gorgeous village in the east of the country surrounded by beautiful forested mountains, has some of the best whitewater in western Europe. This action packed few days not only gives you the adrenalin rushes of the river rapids but also the chance to try your hand at paragliding or downhill mountain biking! Come on your own, or get a group of friends together. Our guides will be there on all the activities to share your adventures, they know this area well. In the same valley as the famed St Moritz, Scuol is a gorgeous area with stunning mountain trails and views. Far from traditional resorts such as Interlaken, this area gives you the chance to sample a piece of real Switzerland.

What you will be up to


1

You will fly out to Zurich where you will board the train for Scuol, a service renowned for it’s efficiency so don’t be late. Get some rest tonight in your hotel in preparation for the next few days. (You should arrive into Zurich no later than 18:00)

(No meals included)

2

Awake and breath in the clear mountain air, you are in some of the most beautiful Alpine ranges in Europe. This morning will be spent exploring the charms of the National Forest nearby. After a gorgeous lunch it’s time to take on the slopes… on mountain bikes! You will be given full protective gear to wear and a top of the range, full suspension mountain bike and looking like your very own set of ‘Ninja Turtles’, you will head for the slopes. If you’ve never done this before this is huge fun, all the fun of mountain biking with a different edge. Then back to the hotel for hot baths to soak any aching muscles before heading out to one of the numerous superb restaurants in Scuol for your evening meal and a few drinks to discuss the day’s highlights.

(Included: Breakfast and lunch)

3

Today is your chance to have some fun on the River Inn, some of the best white water in Europe. After a thorough safety talk you will be guided through some big drops and narrow gorges such as the Scuol and Giarsun gorges and enjoy the thrills of some great roller coaster rides. This is fun but technical white water loved by all our guides. And after all that excitement a hearty meal will be in order, our guides will prepare you a feast of steaks and salads. Then the only things left to complete your weekend is hot soak in the healing waters of the local baths. Later that evening your group will be taken out for a slap up meal and you all to share your stories, feel free to exaggerate, the guides will!

(Included: all meals)

4

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and some time to relax around this beautiful town, maybe some retail therapy, before boarding your train back to Zurich for your onward flight home.

Current COVID Travel Status To Switzerland


Travelling from the US

Entry and Exit Requirements:

 

  • Are U.S. citizens permitted to enter? NO, only in cases of special necessity. 
    • Transiting Switzerland from the United States to another country may not be possible depending on the final destination.  Currently the Swiss Immigration Office does not allow individuals traveling from the United States or other high risk countries to transit Switzerland to another Schengen country, unless all entry requirements for Switzerland have been met.  It may be possible to transit Switzerland from the United States or other high risk country to a non-Schengen country.  Passengers transiting Switzerland from a high risk country, like the United States, to a Schengen country have been denied onward travel and returned to their country of origin. Travelers from high risk countries like the United States are encouraged to travel directly to their final Schengen destination without transiting Switzerland.  For the most current restrictions and travel requirements, please see the FAQ page and the Swiss State Secretariat for Migration Office information page.

      In response to the COVID-19 pandemic there are special rules for people entering Switzerland. Depending on the type of travel, you might have to fill out an entry form, show proof of a negative test and/or go into quarantine.

Travelling from the UK

These restrictions do not apply to UK nationals who are legally resident in Switzerland; you will need to show proof of residence. These restrictions do not apply to UK nationals who are travelling from other Schengen countries.

If you do not hold a residence permit, or do not have your permit with you but are resident in Switzerland, or are otherwise exempted, you will need to apply for a ‘laissez passer’ from the Swiss Embassy in London.
