MTB: Valais Alpine Bike

Lötschental & Val d'Anniviers

A stone's throw from the bustling centre of the canton of Valais, the largely unspoilt Lötschental awaits you. Here you fight your way up along narrow roads, but the effort is well worth it, because once you reach the top, fantastic panoramas await you. The ride back to civilisation takes you first along lonely trails before you return through vineyards to lively Sierre.

Too much hustle and bustle? Then the lonely Val d'Anniviers is just right. To get in the mood, a trail along the valley flank, as the main course a detour to the barrier lake Lac de Moiry and finally, a ride down to Grimentz. The two valleys will inspire you!

Itinerary

By bus and train via Goppenstein to Wiler in the Lötschental. If you want to take it easy, take the cable car up to Lauchernalp. If you have enough strength in your legs, you can climb up an unmade winding road to Hockenalp. The ride high above the Lötschental with a view of the Lang glacier is a delight and the descent down to the valley floor leaves you wanting more.

approx. 16 km (Single-Trails: 6 km)
930 m
790 m

More Lötschental is on the programme today. First, an unhurried walk along the valley floor, then up to Lauchernalp by cable car. After the tough climb from the day before, you now have almost overcome the biggest difference in altitude.

The descent leads in constant ups and downs with magnificent views of the snow-covered Valais peaks out of the Lötschental. From Alp Meiggu, the descent begins leading you with occasional counter ascents up to small hamlets, down into the Rhone Valley. From Sierre, bus ride to St. Luc.

approx. 45 km (Single-Trails: 20 km)
1'315 m
2'905 m

Take the funicular up to Tignousa. From here, the road leads high above the Val d'Anniviers to Zinal. You will encounter a real highlight at the end of the tour. The cable car takes you up to almost 2'700 metres to Sorebois and from here it's all downhill. Past the barrier lake Lac de Moiry to the small mountain village Grimentz.

approx. 29 km (Single-Trails: 15 km)
890 m
2'500 m

Tour character

Many metres in altitude are conquered by cable car but there are always challenging climbs. Some of the descents are long, on some days there are over 1'000 metres of descent at a time. Good basic fitness is required for this. The trails are also manageable for averagely experienced bikers and doable with E-MTBs.
