Velogemel à Bendolla

Velogemel in Bendolla


Velogemel down the Bendolla toboggan run: a combination of cycling, tobogganing and skiing in Grimentz-Zinal. A memorable winter experience, combining tradition and adventure!


Immerse yourself in the captivating history of this unique means of transport, which saw the light of day a century ago in the snowy mountains of Grindelwald, Switzerland. Based on the local word, "Gemel", which means sledge, this unique machine was christened "the bicycle sled: Velogemel".

A real sledge bike, the velogemel has a wooden frame with two runners, controlled by handlebars at the front, which allow you to sit upright and push forward with your legs, like a draisienne.

With its 5km and 540m difference in altitude, this is a great way to discover the thrill of gliding!

Suitable for everyone, the velogemel lets you glide along while enjoying the view and panorama.
