The Olympia Bob Run is the oldest bobsleigh run in the world – as well as the only natural-ice track in existence that hosts international races. In the course of its 125-year old history, it has staged events for two Olympic Winter Games, as well as 24 World Championships.
A guest ride on St. Moritz’s bob run offers 75 seconds of pure adrenalin. Anyone thundering down the ice track in a four-man bob, complete with professional pilot and brakeman, will find their nerves tested to the limit – not least at the legendary "Horse-Shoe" corner. All guests receive a certificate as proof of their achievement: a speed thrill open to any adventurer with a healthy heart. Weather permitting, the bob guest rides are offered almost every day throughout the winter season.
Weather permitting, bob taxi rides for visitors are offered from end of decembre until begin of march.
Reservations can be made through the secretariat of the Olympia Bob Run St. Moritz-Celerina or online.
The minimum age is 18. Persons with back and/or neck problems, as well as circulatory disorders, are not permitted to ride. Participants should bring with them warm clothes and gloves; helmets are provided.
A bob guest ride costs CHF 269.00. Included in the price are the bob ride, transport back to the start, helmet hire, a commemoration certificate and pin badge, and a voucher for a glass of sparkling wine. Bob guest rides can be booked and gift vouchers purchased via the following link:
