Itinerary

The ride from Leuk to Brig could be very easy – but it is not. You soon leave the Rhone-biking path, to climb up the serpentine road to Moosal.

Enjoy the view and take deep breaths at the top: the descent to Visperterminen is going to rob your breath soon. You then pass saffron-growing village of Mund to reach Brig. 

approx. 65 km
1'545 m
1'610 m

You can rest your tired legs some today. A ride brings you high up to the Gibidum reservoir. The imposing stoned am is at the foot of the Aletsch glacier directly above the Massa gorge.

approx. 25 km
830 m
830 m

Follow the course of the Rhone with renewed energy. The Walser villages in Goms are waiting to be discovered as if strung on a string of pearls.

You arrive in Oberwald, but the tour is not over yet. The Grimsel Pass is only a stone's throw away for sport cyclists. 

approx. 85 km
2'250 m
1'560 m

The most beautiful Alpine passes can be reached quickly from Oberwald. You climb high into the rocky world of the Nufenen pass and whoosh down to Airolo. The following ride up to Gotthard Pass is over cobblestones along the countless serpentine curves and challenges you.

You can relax while descending to Hospental. And then it's time for a challenge again, because the Furka Pass at the end of the journey is really tough. 

approx. 100 km
3'025 m
3'025 m

You follow the Rhone route again at the beginning, and it leads you past the most beautiful villages of the Goms. However, the tour is not quite that easy, as a detour into the Binn Valley is on the agenda.

The picturesque return journey to Leuk is the successful conclusion of your journey through Upper Valais. 

approx. 95 km
760 m
1'390 m

Tour characteristic

A unique scenery awaits you in Valais. Surrounded by the most beautiful and highest peaks of the Swiss Alps, you will visit some of the most famous valleys and passes of Switzerland.

You ride on asphalted roads throughout your journey. Some traffic must be taken into account near town and city centres. The ride over the Alpine passes on the fifth day poses a significant challenge in terms of fitness.

6 Tage Schwitzen im Wallis
Die Strecken im Wallis sind sehr schön, sobald man in die Höhe kommt. Das Rhonetal selber hat nicht sehr viel Charme. Unser Highlight war klar das Goms mit seinen vielen kleinen Dörfern und natürlich die vier grossen Pässe. Die Strecke hat aber ein paar Schwachstellen, auf denen es über Feldwege geht. Das ist mit dem Rennrad nicht wirklich wünschenswert. Ins Binntal ist zum Beispiel mit dem Rennvelo nicht empfehlenswert. Entweder hat man einen dunklen, langen Tunnel vor sich oder man nimmt den sehr nassen und langen Feld/Wanderweg drum herum. Über alles gesehen haben wir die Tour aber sehr genossen und die Unterkünfte waren auch sehr gut.

Wir nehmen die Streckenführung nochmals unter die Lupe, um diese zu optimieren – vielen Dank für diese Hinweise.
