Exhausting Moutainbike lap starting in the valley and going up to Fleschen.
Distance 27.8 km
This beautiful tour runs along the mountain ridge up to the idyllic village of Bellwald and onwards to Fleschen, located in the heart of the Bellwald ski resort. Though there is quite an altitude difference to overcome, you'll be rewarded with magnificent views of the Rhone valley and the Valais mountains.
The route can also be covered by cable car and chairlift.
Starting from the tourist office in Fiesch, ride along Furkastrasse to the cable car valley station and continue to the roundabout, taking the exit towards Fürgangen. The route now continues uphill along Furkastrasse to Fürgangen, where the road to Bellwald branches off to the left. After passing Gibelegg, St. Anna and the little hamlet of Egga you'll reach Bellwald, a typical Valais village with narrow alleys and wooden houses blackened by the sun. It's well worth taking a tour of the idyllic village with its car-free centre. Then the tour continues eastwards to the end of the village, where the road gives way to an unpaved Alpine track. Enjoy the magnificent view of the Rhone Valley and the Valais Alps as you ride further uphill to Fleschen.
