Biking holidays Valais Bike TO

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.

Itinerary

Enjoy the view of the Valais mountains when bathing in the thermal bath at Alpentherme.

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 theValais 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.

A chairlift takes you up to Brandalp. From here you have to cycle uphill to reach Moosalp. After enjoying the beautiful view, it will be time to take a deep breath because the descent on the Kalpetran Enduro Trail has a lot to offer: you will conquer almost 1,100 metres drop in no time on the beautiful trails.

Once you reach the valley floor, follow the Matterhorn Valley Trail to St. Niklaus and cycle up to the stage destination Grächen.

Follow the tracks of the 2019 UCI Mountain Bike Marathon Championships down to Kalpetran and on the valley floor to Stalden.

The cable car takes you up to Gspon, from where a beautiful trail takes you through Sädolwald to the Gibidum Pass. 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. Individual departure from Brig.

Tour characteristic

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.
