The hilly ridges of the Jura stretch from Basel to Lake Geneva – the mysterious landscapes off the beaten track that fascinate every traveller. Anyone who thinks of the Jura dreams of fir forests, remote plateaus, grazing horses and spectacular viewpoints.
Including luggage transport!
Snow-white mountain peaks, sunny valleys and the idyllic Alps: there are countless reasons to visit Valais, but the one that attracts bikers to the south of the Alps the most is the innumerable singletrails.
The Jura Bike tour likes to show its teeth once in a while when riding from Saignelégier to Nyon. If you thought the Jura hills were easy to conquer, you will soon learn otherwise on the steep climbs. But the sweaty strenuous sections are followed by dazzling views, thrilling trails, charming stage towns and friendly hosts. At the end of the day, you too will show the Jura Bike your teeth. But we are sure it will be a smile.
The Rhine-Route frames the east of Switzerland in a big bow. You start with a proper climb across the Oberalp pass, the region of the Rhines source, continue through the romanisch-speaking Surselva, and get impressive views of the wild rhine-valley Ruinaulta and visit the rätoromanian capital Chur. With the typical local wind at your side you ride through the “Bündner Herrschaft” (famous wine region) and on the Rhine dam quickly to the wide Lake of Constance, where orchards, castles and happy tourist chatter decorate the shore of the green and silver shimmering «Swabian Sea».
The Grimsel Pass - an imposing dam surrounded by a mountain world of rock and ice. This is the source of the Aare, Switzerland's longest river, which stretches from the Alps past the hills of Jura to the Rhine. You follow the course of river Aare, visit the deep green Lake Brienz, cross the lively Interlaken and the relaxed capital Bern until you reach the Drei-Seen-Land. Now Aare leads you past the pretty old town of Solothurn until your journey ends in Switzerlands former capital Aarau.
On parle français! In the Lower Valais and on Lake Geneva, Swiss clockwork ticks a little more leisurely. You can take it just as easy on this bike tour for connoisseurs. You will soon turn your back on the castles and palaces of Sion, but equally charming landscapes lie ahead. Pass the nature reserve Les Grangettes and the romantic Chillon Castle. Montreux is a poem, as is the ride through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lavaux. This bike tour is a pleasure from start to finish.
The Lakes Route is rightly named after the countless lakes that the route touches between the start at Lake Geneva and the finish at Lake Constance. The route crosses some of the outstanding tourist regions and places with illustrious names: Montreux, Gruyères, Gstaad, Interlaken, Lucerne, Einsiedeln, Rapperswil and Lake Constance. Those who complete the Lakes Route have seen the most beautiful corners of Switzerland.
