First Fliers

Jo’s parents have been with us for the past couple of weeks and one of their requests was to visit First, the mountain area above the eastern side of the Grindelwald valley. To see the views, you might think? No. To feed their ornithological needs and visit the alpine choughs? No.

To hang from a zip wire in a harness and travel from the top First cablecar station to the second at Schreckfeld, 40 metres above the ground at around 80 km/h. Yes, we rode the First Flyer yesterday.
