From Bettmeralp, the Wurzenbord chairlift takes you up to the start of the Flow Trail (2,215m above sea level). The trail is perfectly integrated in the varied terrain and is suitable for beginners and mountain bike pros alike. A great mix of turns, rollers and jumps awaits you – ideal for polishing your bike technique or enjoying a fast-paced descent. During the downhill ride to Bettmeralp, you pass through different alpine zones and have a magnificent view of the Valais mountain panorama. The trail ends at the Wurzenbord cable car station, which whisks you back up to the starting point in a matter of minutes.

Author’s recommendation

Why not start off by biking up to Wurzenbord? Or plan the Flow Trail in as part of a bike tour. That makes your downhill experience more challenging.
