Cycling holidays Rhone-Route Brig - Geneva TO

Cycling: Rhone-Route Switzerland

Sun, Wine and Culture

The Rhone-Route connects – between Oberwald and Geneva – three completely different types of landscapes: In the Goms, the landscape is alpine and the route consists for the most part of downhill rides with an occasional rise. In Brig, the Rhone valley widens. Nowhere in Switzerland, is there more sunshine than here in the Wallis.

Another change of scenery in Villeneuve. The wide, light flooded area of the Lake of Geneva on one side, the wine hills with sounding names on the other side of the route accompany the cyclist on his way towards the goal of the route - Geneva. The Rhone-Route offers scenic and cultural variety and the flat route profile makes it perfectly manageable for casual cyclists as well. 

Itinerary

The main valley in the Valais widens, the sun warms the dry mountain slopes. Between Leuk and Sierre an unruly part of the Rhone, and the Pfynwald, a nature reserve on a huge mound of glacier detritus; this natural park marks also the borderline between the german and french speaking Valais

approx. 60 km

The capital city Sion shows its historical castles, churches and mansions. The lower Rhone-Valley is dominated by the high-alpine scenery of the Dents du Midi. A world of fertile fruit orchards and vineyards. 

approx. 30 km

From the heights, a round tower guards Martigny on its bend in the Rhone at the valley’s narrowest point. St-Maurice guards golden church treasures. High mountains and lowlands, Lac Léman hidden behind reeds and defiant Chillon Castles on the water. 

approx. 50 | 60 km

Lac Léman, a big silver lake surrounded by snowy summits and vineyards, e.g. UNESCO World Heritage Lavaux. Along the shores: Vevey, Montreux,  and the metropolis of Lausanne, "Olympia-City" and the centre of life of the people of Vaud. 

approx. 65 | 70 km

Above the terraced La Côte vineyards, down on the lake the market towns of Morges, Rolle and Nyon. Villasand yachts and the cosmopolitan city of Geneva announces itself with boulevards and its 140m-high water fountain «Jet d'eau». 

approx. 30 km

Tour character

Hilly in the first sections in the high valley of Goms. From Brig, the Rhone-Route leads through flat areas and is suitable for leisure cyclists. From Sion you will have to face some headwind. A highlight is the tour through the vineyards of Lavaux. In the urban sections you will have to face some traffic and busy roads.

Un bon moment de détente
Nous sommes parti de Brig en direction de Lausanne en VTT à mollets. Parcours facile mis à part le vent de face. Agréable et sans soucis, nous avons trouvés nos bagages à chaque étape. Les hôtels étaient tous propres et plus ou moins bien situés et confortable, celui de Martigny n'avait pas la plus belle vue :-(. Une bonne surprise était l'Astra à Vevey avec sa terrasse-jaccousi et apéro sur le toit. L'hôtel Bellerive à Lausanne a besoin d'un sérieux coup de peinture à la réception, mais les chambres sont une bonne surprise. De Vevey à Lausanne, nous avons pris le funiculaire jusqu'au Mont-Pélerin et somme ensuite passé par Puidoux, Riex, Grandvaux, et Lutry; Magnifique. Les distances sont ok sans électriques et aussi pour les enfants dés 12 ans.
