A Day of Sledging From Preda to Bergun


After 3 hard days of ski school, it wasn't a hard choice to take a bit of a break from the slopes (or the baby bumps I should say) and do something a little different, so my husband and I got on a train and headed to Preda, Switzerland where you can rent a sled or 'sledge' as they're called here in Europe and ride all the way down to another village called Bergun, about 4 km away.


We started at the top just near the train tracks and made our way down, through the hills, over bridges and winding around. It was great fun!


One last photo op before take-off!
 


The views along the route were absolutely gorgeous!


At the bottom of the path, you come into Bergun, a sleepy little village that looks as though it may have been hit hard by the economic crisis since nearly everything was shut down, but it was no less beautiful!


After the first run we stopped for some fondue! It was absolutely delicous!

We managed to get 2 runs in that day and the speed meter on the route clocked us going about 35 miles per hour on our sleds! After we finished our second run, we even got the chance to go snow tubing, which was also lots of fun! If you've never done a toboggan run, I highly recommend it!

  2. Hi! Nice pictures! I´m planning to go to Bergün this Christmas. Could you tell me how much is the cost for renting a sledge?
    Thanks!

    1. Thank you for your comment Andrea! I can't remember exactly, but I want to say it was very reasonable… I think the equivalent of about £20 GBP, but unfortunately I just can't remember. Have a lovely time!
