Switzerland is mooving in a new direction by utilizing one of their most valued asset in udderly new ways: cows!
Llama trekking, donkey trekking or even hiking with mules has been around for a long time. But cow trekking is a fairly new activity which we could not resist.
Cow trekking in Switzerland
On a recent summer weekend, we drove out to Bolderhof, an organic farm in Hemishofen in the canton of Schaffhausen. Before this visit, we have never actually ridden a cow... Knowing that these bovines creates can be quite moody, we did not know what to expect.
The entrepreneurial farmers of the Bolderhof offer shorter and longer cow trekking trips. We opted to test ride a cow on just a short circuit by the farm. But the half-day trips involve riding along the Rhine river and stopping for a picnic.
Needless to say, we had a blast! How do you feel about cow trekking? Do you like it or does llama trekking suit you better?
