This beautiful route on the sunny slopes of the Rhone Valley passes by idyllic Valais villages and hamlets. With technically demanding passages and an altitude difference of 600 metres to overcome at the end of the tour, it also has some real challenges to offer.
Safety informationThere's a challenging trail and two dykes leading to Ried-Mörel, therefore you should push your bike across the dykes.
