Biking holidays Valais Alpine Bike

MTB: Valais Alpine Bike

Pure pleasure on Valais singletrails  

Biking along suonen, culinary highlights on the alp, relaxation in the thermal baths and kilometre-long descents: during the ride along the Valais Alpine Bike, you can do several things from your Valais to-do list at once. But actually, the ride is too beautiful to simply tick it off. It's best to start again from the beginning!

Itinerary

Enjoy the view of the highest peaks in the Valais and a walk on the high plateau of Crans-Montana.

The tour climbs steadily at the beginning. The culminating point is the Cabane de la Tièche where a descent of more than 1,000 metres of altitude down to Leuk begins. Occasionally, you rush past a few alps, later the descent at Varen leads through the vineyards and grapevines of the Rhone Valley. Once in Leuk, the bus takes you up to Leukerbad. 

approx. 23 km (Single-Trails: 8 km)
730 m
1'580 m

In the morning, you will take the cable car up to Rinderhütte, where the Torrent Trail Bike, one of the most beautiful singletrails in Switzerland, awaits you. Make a turn at Erschmatt and descend into the Rhône Valley.

From Raron, the cable car takes you up to the next stage destination, i.e., Unterbäch. If you want to enjoy the Valais mountain sun a bit longer, you can add a few more laps to the Flowtrail Leukerbad at the top of the first gondola in Rinderhütte before heading towards Untere Feselalp on a balcony trail.

approx. 33 km (Single-Trails: 15 km)
530 m
2'230 m

A chairlift takes you up to Brandalp. From here you have to cycle uphill to reach Moosalp. After enjoying the beautiful view, it is time to get back in the saddle and tackle the descent into the Mattertal, via the mountain village of Törbel and into the valley floor to Stalden. Then continue on the beautiful Matterhorn Valley Trail up through the Mattertal to St. Niklaus.

From St. Niklaus, a bus will take you to Grächen, the destination of today's stage.

approx. 33 km (Single-Trails: 11 km)
1'170 m
1'655 m

You follow the Mattsand Enduro Trail and the Matterhorn Valley Trail down to Kalpetran and on to Stalden on the valley floor. The cable car takes you up to Gspon and then a beautiful trail leads through the Sädol forest to the Gibidumpass.

A comfortable trail leads you from the pass down to the wild Nanztal Valley. You can take a short break at Nidristi Alp before the final trail takes you to the final destination, i.e., Brig.

approx. 51 km (Single-Trails: 18 km)
890 m
2'900 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.
