Why Interlaken Switzerland is the Adrenaline Capitol
Not only is Interlaken, in Switzerland's Jungfrau Region, very easy on the eyes thanks to stunning panoramic mountain views, but it is also the country's adrenalin capitol, serving as the launch point to winter adventure that makes this destination memorable and thrilling. It starts with a place called Vertical Rush where you can free fall the way a base jumper does to feel the same thrill before catching slack and lowering slowly to the ground. But also includes opportunities for everything from skydiving to paragliding and heli-skiing. And beyond pure adrenalin thrills, you can escape to remote parts of nature and go snowshoeing through a snow-covered forest to see views of the Alps you have to work for. Come evening, rent a pair of skates and head to Magic Ice, which connects several ice rinks with snaky routes in a festive atmosphere.
