Cycling: Rhone-Route Switzerland Trips to Geneva

Sun, Wine and Culture

They follow the vastness of the Rhone Valley. 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. The capital city Sion shows its historical castles, churches and mansions.
