Travel & Skate

Inlineskating across Switzerland!

Skate across Switzerland from the beautiful 3-Seen-Land (three lake country) to the famous Bodensee (lake Constance).

 

The tour is very exciting! Admire the beautiful landscape of lakes, forests, castles and tiny villages along the way. The entire tour is tarmaced and far away from the busy main roads. Though the route is fairly easy to skate on there are some climbs and descent we will come across.

 

The idea of travel & skate came up during a trip to Thailand. Together with her friend Kelly, Anja wanted tor raise money for an orphanage. The two girls skated from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, a distance of 1000 kilometers in 10 days and collected 3000 € for the kids. After this incredible journey she decided to start skate & travel in Europe.
