Set off on a mountain-bike ride through the Alps from Leukerbad to Brig on the most beautiful single trails in Upper Valais.
From Leukerbad to Brig, enjoy the most wonderful mountain-bike trails in Upper Valais on the new Valais Bike regional route. It includes most of the best single trails overlooking the Rhône Valley. To avoid some hard climbs, it relies on ski lifts at various points to make the ride as enjoyable as possible. Experience some spine-tingling moments on the section from Rinderhütte to Jeizinen high up in the mountains on the first day as well as during the ride to Moosalp on day two. Marvel at the breathtaking views from the shores of Lake Gibidum high above Brig on the last day of your ride.
Taste the traditional “Cremeschnitte” at the Moosalp restaurant when you stop for a bite to eat.
