Outdoor is not a company you should complete a via ferrata with, noting we did the guided Murren-Gimmelwald via ferrata with Outdoor. There were several problems, which are noted below.

First of all the entire tour was rushed. We arrived, but had forgot gloves (traveling internationally and we forgot to pack in our luggage), we were rushed to start and could not enter the store to rent or buy gloves for the experience, we ended up starting over 15 minutes early.

During the first ~ quarter of the experience people were split up and the order of participants changed. There was absolutely no reason for splitting up participants communicated. When you pay 169 francs per person to do an activity with your girlfriend it would be nice to actually do the activity with them instead of being separated.

While descending one series of rebar steps the guide starting to pull on my leg. The guide did not say anything to me, he just started pulling on my leg. As a normal person would do, I asked him to let go of my leg, but he did not understand me (poor english), so I repeated by saying "Stop Touching Me". He Just continued pulling on my leg harder and said he'll touch anyone. It was a steep slippery section so I was being careful and slow in my movements and foot placement. It is highly unprofessional and dangerous for anyone, let alone a guide, to start pulling on your leg while descending a via ferrata. There are cases where it is plausible that for safety purposes a guide would help a participant, but the guide would talk or communicate to the participant in advance. In this scenario I was not in danger, I was just being careful... I think the guide did this to rush the tour along.

The waiver process was also rushed, and Outdoor engages in unethical business practices. The liability waiver is on a different sheet from the actual signature sheet. We were rushed to sign the signature page but were never shown the actual liability waiver. After some googling I understand there have been some serious injuries on other tours / experiences by this company which makes it even worse that participants are forced to rush through the waiver and in many cases are not given a chance to even see the liability waiver.

Overall the quality of the Via Ferrata tour in Murren with Outdoor Company is extremely bad. The views and location are 5/5. The Via Ferrata course itself is 5/5. However the guide was un professional and we were rushed during every step of the experience. Considering the tour costs 169 francs per person the company and guide should put more focus on professionalism and also letting participants enjoy the experience, instead of just rushing everything so the guide gets a longer lunch break.

If you're visiting Grindelwald and looking for an adrenaline packed adventure, the canyon swing is a must! The staff were exceptional, making sure everything was safe and enjoyable. They provided clear instructions and were incredibly supportive, which helped calm my nerves before the jump. The moment you leap off the platform is pure exhilaration, and the swing through the canyon offers breathtaking views you won’t find anywhere else. It was a thrilling experience that I will remember forever. Perfect for thrill-seekers and anyone looking to push their limits in one of the most beautiful settings in the world!

Genuinely such a great experience. The staff were phenomenal and super friendly. They double-tripled checked all the equipment and created a really chill vibe to get you comfortable for the jump. Would recommended to anyone. The view was WOW.

My 14 year old son and I did the Via Ferrata hike in Murren, through Outdoor. Everything went very well, although I had been nervous about it in advance! (Not nervous about Outdoor themselves, but nervous about the heights on the hike.) Our guide Ricardo was wonderful, and kept our group of 8 tourists moving along smoothly. If you're not familiar with a Via Ferrata hike, check out some videos on YouTube - definitely a cool bucket list item!

I could not talk my wife into joining me on a bungy jump, but she agreed to do this. The Canyon Swing may have been my favorite single outing in Switzerland among many 5-star experiences.

First of all, credit to the folks at Outdoor Interlaken. I booked 3 activities with them and interacted with several employees. They were responsive, helpful, and usually friendly and fun on top of that. They helped me arrange my itinerary to do the Canyon Swing and Stockhorn Bungy Jump in the same day without having to rush or worry about making it.

The jump itself is exhilarating. You get like a 200 foot total free fall before swinging horizontally and upwards across the canyon. A bit "terrifying" according to my wife, but she was all smiles after screaming on the way down. It was very fun, and you you'll have ample time to take in the beautiful canyon before exiting the swing.

As an added bonus, you are able to tour the canyon (including the spider web over the water) at your leisure--it is very pretty and interesting. We got some great photos.

The video, which we purchased, was professionally done and arrived within a couple days. ONE SUGGESTION: while I enjoyed the edited product, why not also include the complete, raw footage as well? I found the video to be worth it, though a bit pricy. I'd have liked to have had the full start-to-finish footage I could then edit myself as well.

The online pics of Stockhorn Bungy were as big a reason for our trip to Switzerland as any--I had been wanting to do this for over a year, and the experience did not disappoint.

The views were spectacular, the jump itself was exhilarating, and the staff and crew were organized and on the ball. Everything ran on time and proceeded as advertised. Activities like this tend to draw fun groups of people as well, which was certainly the case with our crew of jumpers and was an added bonus.

In terms of what to expect, you actually need to do a couple things. It isn't just jump, and they'll do the rest. There is a cord they'll ask you to pull to bring yourself upright at a certain point in the jump and another couple steps involved--I ended up going first and was a bit concered I would screw something up and get things off on the wrong foot. Those concerns were unwarranted (thankfully), as I simply followed the instructions that were clearly articulated and repeated. Everything went smoothly.

The video/photo package is a bit pricy but professionally done, and I recommend getting it. One suggestion: in addition to the very well-done, edited video, it would be nice to simply include the raw footage in its entirety, as is done with the photo package. Love the video you put together, but why not just include all the unedited footage as well?

I had a great time and could easily see myself coming back with family and/or friends.

It was my first experience and I am so proud that I did it. As a person who is scared of heights, I wanted to come out of my comfort zone and tried it. The experience was really worth it. It was scary for me at the beginning but then after the leap, I cannot express how happy and proud. You literally swing over the glacier river in between the narrow gorge. It is an experience of a lifetime. Would do it again, no matter what. The crew was really friendly and patient.

Want to commend our Guide, Hemi, for making our family’s river rafting experience so memorable! He was clear with his instructions and he was patient with us. Hemi made us feel comfortable and assured that we were doing well even though we were such amateurs! His cheerful demeanour lighten the fears of river rafting! He even remembered all our names! Thank you Hemi!!
