Cow Trekking in Switzerland

Switzerland is moving in a new direction by utilizing one of their most valued asset in wholly new ways... Cow trekking, anyone?

I have never actually ridden a cow, but I know that they can be quite moody. Either way, I have learned that an entrepreneurial farmer in Switzerland is essentially subcontracting his cows to you for a half-day of good old bonding!

The thought of becoming a real Swiss "cow-boy" is quite tempting, so I might have to give this place a call sometime...

So, how do you feel about cow trekking? Do you like it or would you rather try llama trekking?

  • Oh mammamia! I love cows but I’ve seen the way those girls can buck. Calm it down with a good dose of Swiss schnaps and you might get me to try!

  • OMG!!! I am so going to do this with my two little girls when we move there in July!!! What awesome pics those will be! I can just hear all of my friends and family now back here in the States!!! LOL!!

  • This looks sooo cool! We should organise a bloggers’ event there. I’m sure some of us would love to try and write about it !

  • When I was I kid a spent a lot of time at a farm of a friend of mine. We tried riding the calfs there. It was a bit of a rodeo but a lot of fun. So this sounds great to me.

    • @Leah: Wow, this is the first testament of a cow rider I have ever heard! I think we will be trying it out on 1st of August, so I will be sure to report back ;-)
