Skijöhring in Château-d'Œx

Description

This traditional way of transportation from Lapland of being pulled by a reindeer over the snow has been providing unusually cheerful and athletically impressive winter experiences in Switzerland for a few decades. Here, a horse replaces the reindeer, but the fun certainly remains the same.

Those who want to try their hand at skijöhring can do so in the Pays-d'Enhaut, where there are not only rides for beginners, but also spectacular races for the more experienced. The athletes, equipped with skis or a snowboard, are connected to the horse with the help of a harness to hold on to and a rope. The animal obediently responds to all commands and depending on the pace given to it, skijöhring can be a relaxing walk through the snowy forest or a "wild ride" in winter wonderland. In the Pays-d'Enhaut, horse and ski enthusiasts have formed an association to bring this activity to life in Switzerland and make it a winter sport in its own right. Introductory courses for one up to ten people are given during the whole season.

- Skijöhring is suitable for the young and the old, and for experienced riders as well as for small children. - Offer available from December to April, depending on snow conditions.
