In winter the Fideriser Heuberge (literally: the hay mountains of Fideris) are famous for the thrilling sled rides down into the valley. But when it comes to mountain biking this stunning mountain landscape must first be conquered uphill, making the subsequent downhill run all the more exciting.
The route takes us out of the pretty mountain village of Fideris on an initially steep section along an asphalted mountain road towards the Fideriser Heuberge. After some 2 km the steep climb levels off as we go past pleasant pasture huts and beyond the confines of the forest. Shortly before the Berghaus Arflina it all gets seriously steep again. Once we reach the mountain restaurant it’s time for a break to take in the wonderful mountain panorama and savour the moment.
The single trail that’s up next is initially still quite steep and technically demanding. It includes sections where you will simply need to push your bike. But then, at an altitude of around 2200 m, we reach the turning point of the tour, and what follows is a long and well-deserved downhill run. In fact the descent is also part of Route 333, the famous Swiss Bike Masters. The high-speed alpine trail takes us past the Alp Nova and on down into the valley.
Half-way down, the route branches off from the alpine road to take us back on to a beautiful single trail through the forest. The exciting and entertaining route alternates sections of trail and forestry track as we speed on down back to Fideris and the starting point of our tour.
Accessible from May to October.
