Celebrating in Switzerland!

Posted by   rachael on    November 5, 2016

On the 12th of August, 41 members of Cornwall’s Senior Section headed to Switzerland on a centenary trip arranged by Sarah Semmens. We travelled via coach to Dover and took the ferry to Calais, before we drove through France and Germany to our final destination, Adelboden; Switzerland.


The itinerary for the trip was jam-packed, with activities such as a visit to Our Chalet, including a guided tour and a badge pinning ceremony, a day at the Adventure Parc and white water rafting. With so many of us, travelling wasn’t quiet (except for sleep time) and it was a great experience to meet girls from all over Cornwall and make memories with new friends!

For the duration of the trip we stayed in a chalet called “Cantate” in Adelboden, it was located in a beautiful area with lots to do, including shops, a swimming pool, woodcarvers and landscape, providing nice places for walks such as the Choleren gorge.

We also visited Jungraujoch; the Top of Europe. It gave us close up views of the longest glacial flow from 3454 meters above sea-level and a cog-wheel railway travelling up to the summit. The trip was a fabulous experience and enjoyed by all, thank you Sarah!white river rafting.jpg
