Swiss bike pleasures

You will experience the unspoilt nature of the Swiss national park in the beginning of this bike tour through the alps. You roll towards picturesque Val Mustair, continue to shopper's paradise in Livigno and spend a night in the world famous St. Moritz. 

Old traders paths lead your way over the mountain Pass Sett towards Albula valley. Enjoy the views on the famous viaducts and bridges of the Rhaetian Railway before you reach your final destination in Tiefencastel.

Itinerary

By bus through ruggedly romantic Val S-charl, past quaint hamlet of S-charl and Tamangur Swiss stone pine forest. Single trail through mountain pines just before Pass da Costainas, later through larch woods, over the Lü sun terrace into Münstertal.

After your arrival you can look at the monastery of Müstair - part of UNESCO world culture heritage.

Ascent through airy larch woods into the mystic Val Mora: a heavenly high valley, one of the most stunning in Switzerland. A Canadian wilderness seems close enough to touch.

Stony trail down into Italy, lovely route alongside shimmering lakes. 

approx. 40 km (Single-Trails: 7 km)

The route back into Switzerland includes three passes, but only one real climb. From the Bernina pass downwards, the ride is fun and easy, through mountain pastures and larch forests, beneath the magnificent glacier backdrop of Piz Palü and Piz Bernina on to St. Moritz. 

approx. 45 km (Single-Trails: 13 km)

Scenic, unsurfaced trail alongside the Upper Engadine lakes, lovely single trail with wide views above Isola. From Val Bregaglia, an old mule trail leads over the Septimerpass, demanding; even the best bikers give their all.

Carrying passages unavoidable here.

1'675 m

Zippy forest trail out of the valley, testing ascent at Sur, quiet section along the Roman Septimer route on a terrace high above the valley floor, excellent single trail with spectacular views.
