Adelboden Alpine Adventure

Fun in the snow on Jungfraujoch

During August, 1st Flintham and other scout groups from Newark district went on an Alpine Adventure to Switzerland. We went for two weeks, one week in a chalet in Adelboden and the next in the international scout centre in Kanderstag.

We did a range of activities such as scrambling up a via ferrata, white water rafting, zip lining, an over night hut expedition and lots of walking. The team who completed the over night hut hike climbed to 2480 metres. We were high enough to walk on a glacier.

One of the most memorable activities was the Junfrau trip, it has the highest railway station in Europe at 3,454 metres.
