A challenging bike route which demands everything from you.
This bike tour offers everything you could wish for: hard ascents on hiking paths (caution: hikers always have priority) and thrilling descents on forest tracks. The moderately difficult tour provides a considerable total vertical climb. Savour the magnificent view across to the Bietschhorn - the “King of Valais” - from the highest point at 2,134 metres above sea level.
