Crème de la Crème
This tour features the most scenic places in the Alps: The largest glaciers, highest peaks in Switzerland, beautiful mountain lakes, the Matterhorn… and you will be riding your bike right next to it. In combination with beautiful, authentic hotels as well as our full service package (airport and location transfer, local english speaking guides, etc.) you are in for the trip of your life.
Val d’Anniviers: If you arrive by plane, we will pick you up from the airport in Zurich (ZRH) or Geneva (GVA) and head directly for Val d’Anniviers/Wallis, where we will be starting our journey. In the later afternoon, you can build up your bikes (or try out your rental bike) check all the gear, before we discuss the weekly plan and do some last minute food shopping.
Val d’Anniviers: We will start our week by using the local cable cars to avoid some meters in altitude. On beautiful trails, we will head head to a beautiful mountain hut where we can have luch and enjoy the view. In the afternoon, we will follow a high-altitude trail towards the end of the valley and then descend through needle-trails to the valley floor. No worries, our bus will bring you back to the hotel.
Val d’Anniviers: Todays tour features a great ratio of about 300 meters up and 2500 meters down. First through some rocky sections that then lead into flowy trails through the woods.
Aletsch: In the morning we will use our van to transfer into the Aletsch region with its huge glacier. Our hotel is located on an Alp as high as 2000 meters and can only be reached via cable car. In the afternoon, we will do a half day tour to see the glacier for the first time.

Zermatt: After a great breakfast at the hotel, we will head for Gornergrat railway that will bring us to almost 3100 meters above sea level. We will start with some of the easier descents and adjust according to the groups preferences in the afternoon.
