5 tips for water lovers

5 tips for non-stop water fun in and around Lake Thun and Lake Brienz

For families, it’s the classic holiday situation: Mum and Dad want to relax in peace, leaving their everyday stresses and strains behind, and the kids can't get enough of beach life. The tips below will help you balance everybody’s preferences for the perfect summer holiday.

Tip 1: More lake than sea

Want to spend a week basking in the sun on the beach with the kids? Don't worry: You don’t have to go to Italy to experience the sea. We’ll introduce you to the most beautiful lidos and open-air pools that Lake Thun and Lake Brienz have to offer.

Tip 2: A family holiday on and around the lake

Instead of a luxury ocean cruise, how about a cosy boat trip on Lake Thun or Lake Brienz? The Globi Family Travel Pass from BLS Interlaken Lake Cruise not only guarantees an unforgettable trip: It’s easy on your wallet too.

Tip 3: Teamwork in a canoe

Are you ready to try out a new sporting experience with your kids? On an exciting canoe tour of Lake Thun or Lake Brienz, you can get up close to the nature and the lake’s wild inhabitants. Here’s another tip: The canoeing trail from Gwatt to Leissigen is a real highlight.

Tip 4: Nature’s theatre, free of charge

The cost of holiday activities quickly gets expensive. Tickets to the museum, perhaps a bite to eat and travel...it all adds up. When was the last time you saw a waterfall, though? A while ago, right? Great! Then why not plan a hike to the Giessbach Falls, rounded off with a picnic in nature?

Tip 5: Dive into a refreshing, natural lido!

Nothing could be better than some exuberant, exhilarating fun in the water at the height of summer. The Burgseeli natural lido has plenty to offer for a perfect family excursion to the water. An adventure pool or diving platforms for the kids, a beautiful sunbathing lawn for parents and barbecue areas for all.
