Barry takes the CabriO
Over a dozen of the legendary St. Bernard dogs (known in some quarters as Barrys after a famous mountain rescue dog) are coming to sniff the mountain air of Central Switzerland on 30 July 2016 and ascending the Stanserhorn via the vintage funicular railway and unique CabriO aerial cableway.
Two Swiss symbols at a stroke – the St. Bernards from the Great St. Bernard Hospice taking on the Unterwald Prealps. Saturday, 30 July finds St. Bernard fanciers and nature-lovers getting together on the Stanserhorn with more than a dozen of the breed supplied by the Barry Foundation to discover and walk on the mountain.
Visitors can take advantage of a special price of CHF 69.00 for adults and CHF 25.00 for children, to include the return trip up the mountain, lunch in the revolving restaurant, a round walk with the dogs in the company of a ranger, and a demonstration of the unique capabilities of our St. Bernards. Musical accompaniment will be by the Trio St. Jakob. Registration required: firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information at: www.fondation-barry.ch.
CabriO aerial cableway, Stanserhorn
A novel cableway system allows visitors to glide up the Stanserhorn in the open air. Boasting two double-deck cabins featuring an open top deck, this cableway is the only one of its type in the world. The dogs will be able to enjoy wonderfully refreshing and agreeable rides up and down the mountain in the company of their owners.
Mountain pass walks with St. Bernards
Twice a day in July and August, visitors have a chance to accompany the St. Bernards on an hour-and-a-half’s walk over a mountain pass on the dogs’ home patch. “This is a unique opportunity to experience the dogs in this historically significant place with its fabulous Alpine backdrop,” says Manuel Gaillard, Head of Dogs and Breeding. Each walk is limited to ten participants, so registration is highly recommended by emailing email@example.com.
