The tour is a real challenge for experienced bikers! The mix of tough sections and fascinating nature is much easier if tackled in individual stages spread over several days.
A total of 127km and 4,700 spectacular altitude metres await you on this challenging mountain-bike route. But it is specifically designed to let you tackle the tour over a number of days from different starting points. From Bellwald, for example, via Fieschertal and Fiesch, then on to the steep climb up to the sunny plateau of the Aletsch Arena. From there the route takes you to Lake Märjelensee and back to Bettmeralp. From Bettmeralp you cycle up to the Moosfluh Checkpoint and on over Riederalp down to Mörel. This is followed by the ultimate in uphill challenges: a climb of 1,600 altitude meters up to the Breithornpass! But the subsequent ride down to Binntal lets you relax a little. From here you follow the Rhone towards Obergoms and back to Bellwald.
From the Moosfluh view point you’re treated to magnificent views of the imposing Great Aletsch Glacier! Be sure to plan a stop here!
