Toboggan ride

The toboggans are of a wicker construction, built on wooden runners beneath.  They are pushed and steered (and for a brief stretch, pulled) by fit guys dressed in traditional white, with straw boaters, and in February, blue tops against the 17°C cold.

They are very much a tradition, of little practical use today, but the tourists keep it alive, and the locals seem to be happy with this.

It doesn't look like fun to me. Did you enjoy it?

Good question Cherie. Compared to a fairground ride it was pretty tame. On the other hand, it's the only way you can experience it. Once was enough, and I'm glad I did it.
