Get your heart racing during this whitewater adventure on the Lutschine River near the Truemelbach Falls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley of 72 waterfalls.
Truemelbach Falls are the world's only glacier waterfalls accessible underground by lift, galleries, tunnels, paths and platforms. They are Europe’s largest subterranean waterfalls and alone carry the meltwater of the glaciers from the Jungfrau down to the valley -- up to 20,000 liters of water per second. The water carries with it over 20,000 tons of boulders and scree per year and causes the entire mountain to shudder and make a thundering noise.
The Lutschine River is located in the Jungfrau Region in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland. It flows from the base of the Eiger’s North Face out into the Interlaken Valley and finally into Lake Brienz. Rafting trips on the Lutschine generally begin below Grindelwald in the Grindelwald Valley and end in Lake Brienz near Interlaken.
