Breathtaking Alpine bike tour with a vast total height difference, sensational passes and incredible long- distance views. Lovely trails, little asphalt. Mountain bikers will really be in their element on this route, which demands fitness and technique
The imposing castle ruins of Zignau and Schlans face each other on opposite sides of the gentle Surselva slopes, as if resembling a gateway to mark the beginning or end of this breathtaking bike tour. This tour quite simply has everything a biker could wish for.
An Alpine to high-Alpine route with numerous height metres, testing passes, breathtaking views, remote valleys and sensational trails. A gentle, simple meadow trail winds over the Durannapass, the ascent to the Strelapass is steep, rough and challenging and the Kunkelspass is romantic biking bliss. The top highlight is the seemingly unspectacular section between Filisur and Lenzerheide. This cave, meadow, forest, tunnel and reed-bed trail is great fun and will also give less experienced bikers a true biking tingle.
The technically and physically demanding route is recommended for experienced bikers and best travelled in high summer and early autumn.
