Our insider tip for family fun at the weekend is Switzerland's only Vitaparcours trail for families!
At the first stop, we’re greeted by Zack, a little fox, along with his forest friends Merlin the owl, Daisy the rabbit, Tim the squirrel and Carla the deer, who invite us on a forest adventure. No problem – we’re ready to go! At the next stops, they show us exercises and challenge us to copy them: Grow like a tree, run like a gnome, hop like a rabbit, hang like a bat, balance like a squirrel and fly like a bird. We work our way through the exercises obediently. The little one thinks they’re so cool that she invents a few of her own at each stop.
It’s wonderful to be here in the forest, just the two of us, with the sun shining through the branches as we keep active – walking, running, jumping over rocks and branches and having plenty of fun, too! Even searching for the next stop is an adventure in itself. Who will find it first? Which of the forest friends will teach us the exercise? We’ve even come up with our own points system for these matters where each decision is final.
We feel a little sad when Zack and his forest friends say their goodbyes at the last stop, but we promise to come back and pay another visit to the forest soon.
