The world's longest sled run in Grindelwald, Switzerland

To me, nothing represents sustainable travel more than traveling in vehicles that require no fuel, such as a sled. To get to this sled run we had to take a train, then take a cable car partway up the mountain, then hike 3 more hours to the summit with a sled, before we were able to enjoy our ride down. All this effort to enjoy the beauty of nature on one of the most simple means of transport.
