The Rhone Route traverses the Valais against an imposing mountain backdrop on charming and peaceful paths along the Rhone. It leads past the palm tree promenades of Lac Léman and the picturesque Lavaux vineyards and ends in the cosmopolitan city of Geneva.

Somewhat hilly in the first section, from Brig the route is almost completely flat and is also perfect for bon vivants. From Sion, you can expect a bit of a headwind. A highlight is the ride through the vineyards of Lavaux. Traffic is to be expected around the urban regions
