Strenuous ride around one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in Switzerland with a best view guarantee. The air starts to get thin by the peak of the Alp Nova with its weather-beaten huts at 2000 m. The singletrail descent from the Obersaxen high plateau: top drawer.

A Gravel bike tour into another world: Steep slopes wind from Scuol up to the old miners’ settlement S-charl. But the climb soon gets gentler on the gravel – and the surroundings are heavenly. Along the rough gravel bed of the meandering Clemgia, the mountain track leads almost to the highest Swiss stone pine forest in Europe, the God da Tamangur.
