Brig mit Stockalperschloss

Day 2

Brig – Susten

You leave the Stockalper Palace behind and drive through small villages and settlements. Visible from afar is the castle church of Raron, which towers high above the valley. The destination of today's ride is the small village of Susten, which is located at the gates of the Pfynwald Nature Park. 

Details: approx. 35 km ↑ 130 m ↓ 170 m

Varen Pfyn-Finges-Nature-Park

Day 3

Susten – Sion

In the meantime, the river has changed its name: as soon as you reach the Lower Valais at Sierre, you no longer speak of the Rotten - you now also officially follow the Rhone. The castles of Tourbillon and Valeria await you at the end of today's ride. Treat yourself to a glass of wine in the bilingual cantonal capital of Sion!

Details: approx. 30 km ↑ 90 m ↓ 240 m

Entlang der Rhone Route in Sion.

Day 4

Sion – Martigny

Orchards and vineyards dominate the valley and the white peaks of the 3,000-metre peaks greet us from far above for the last time. A detour to Saillon is worthwhile. In the counterfeit money museum you will discover coins from all over the world and learn about the local hero and coin counterfeiter Joseph-Samuel Farinet.

If you visit an exchange office in Sion, you can even obtain your own currency, the "Farinet", which you can use to pay in certain places in the Lower Valais. The ruins of the La Bâtiaz fortress will eventually show you the way to Martigny. 

Details: approx. 30 km ↑ 100 m ↓ 120 m

Day 5

Martigny – Montreux

High above, a round tower guards Martigny on the Rhone bend, St-Maurice at the narrowest point in the valley guards golden church treasures. High mountains and lowlands, still hidden behind reeds, the expanse of Lac Léman, and then defiantly the fortress of Chillon Castle in the water.

Details: ca. 50 km ↑ 180 m ↓ 270 m

Day 6

Montreux – Lausanne | Departure

Lac Léman, a small silvery sea surrounded by snowy peaks and vineyards, like the Unesco World Heritage Site of Lavaux. Along the shore: Vevey, Montreux, and the metropolis of Lausanne, "Olympic city" and lifeblood of the Vaudois people. Departure by public transport to your final destination in Switzerland or extension of your stay.

Details: approx. 30 km ↑ 455 m ↓ 455 m

Tour characteristic

An easy tour with only a few metres of altitude. The tour through Lavaux is made easier with a ride up Mont-Pèlerin. There may be a little more traffic around the towns.
