As we gear up for Sochi 2014, here's a look back at a few of the previous venues that played host to the pinnacle of winter sport, as well as a hint at what's to come in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018.
It’s hard to think of a more romantic view of the Swiss mountains than gazing up at their snow-capped peaks while snuggled up in a horse-drawn sleigh. Zermatt uses a traditional horse and carriage to transport visitors to and from ski lifts, while St. Moritz has a highly reputable selection of sleigh tours.But for that unrivalled romantic ambience head to the Dischma Valley in Davos where you can take a moonlit sleigh ride underneath the warmth of thick furs. If you find yourself yearning for a similar experience in the summer, trips in horse-drawn carriages through the mountain of Rigi, dubbed the “Queen of the Mountains,” are available.
