Biking holidays Valais Bike

Mountainbike: Valais Bike

Pure enjoyment on single trails in the Valais

Snow-white mountain peaks, sunny valleys and the idyllic Alps: there are countless reasons to visit Valais, but the one that attracts bikers to the south of the Alps the most is the innumerable singletrails.

Starting from the thermal resort of Leukerbad, the Valais Bike takes you on promising paths down the flanks of the Rhône Valley to Gampel-Steg. From there you continue to Raron and take the cable car up to Unterbäch. Take a deep breath and brace yourself because you will climb up to the promising Moosalp the next day before following a cracking trail down to the Matter Valley.

The picturesque Gibidum lake will tempt you to linger awhile, but the bike tour comes to an end shortly thereafter at the Stockalper Palace in Brig. Be it a valley or peak: this bike tour through Valais provides many good reasons for a second visit.

From Raron, the cable car takes you up to the next stage destination, i.e., Unterbäch.

Tour character

Large part of the altitude is covered by cable car. The descents are long at times – basic fitness is necessary. Averagely trained bikers can also cope well with the trails. The Valais Bike is under development and signposts have not been put up everywhere yet. You will need to navigate as you go using the SwitzerlandMobility app.
