Cycling holidays Grisons Route
Cycling: Grisons Route
- 7 Days / 6 Nights
Arrival to Scuol
Scuol – Zernez
Going up and down constantly, the route takes you through the narrow Inn valley, past small villages with painted Engadine houses. Zernez is the gateway to the Swiss National Park and the destination of today's trip.
Zernez – Bergün
The valley widens and soon reaches S-chanf. While cross-country skiers breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the ski marathon in winter, you should take a deep breath, the Albula Pass lies ahead of you. After crossing the top of the pass, a rapid descent takes you past Preda into charming Bergün.
Bergün – Andeer
You can walk to the Landwasser viaduct near Filisur, which is just after Bergün. Shortly after Tiefencastel, the Graubünden route goes along a busy road, which you have the option to avoid by taking the train. Once you arrive at the Hohen Rätien castle in Thusis, turn south and follow the Hinterrhein through the Viamala Gorge to the spa town of Andeer.
Andeer – San Bernardino
You can hear transit humming in the tunnel, there is relative calm while winding upwards to the San Bernardino Pass. A high-altitude mystical moorland landscape, characterised by glacier cliffs, hilltops and sea eyes, where dragonflies hunt and grass frogs hide.
The exhilarating descent to Valle Mesolcina, a difference of 2000 meters in altitude without a single pedal stroke! After the rough mountain winds on the pass, you can eagerly soak up the mildness of the south. The towers of Bellinzona beckon soon - the defiant walls once guarded the trade routes.
Departure or extension
For the many passes and partly steep ascents and descents, good basic condition is required. On some pass roads you have to expect traffic at weekends. The Schinschlucht (tunnels and traffic) between Tiefencastel and Thusis can be bypassed by public transport or on the MTB-Route 90 (steep, unpaved).
