Tour description

Magnificent views of the Rhone Valley and the Valais mountains are guaranteed on this relaxed tour. The route from Riederalp includes no significant climbs and runs right across the sun-drenched slope beneath the Aletsch Plateau, through idyllic hamlets and Valais villages down to Fiesch.
Starting from the Riederalp tourist office, ride towards the Moosfluh valley station and then follow the path that branches off to the right, winding its way downhill to Goppisberg and onwards to Betten. After passing through the beautiful village with its idyllic Valais houses, follow the dirt track on a slight incline through the forest up to Martisberg. Once you reach the top, it's all downhill from there: after the first hairpin bend at the eastern end of the village, an easily rideable single trail branches off to the left before rejoining Martisbergerstrasse shortly afterwards. Those who want to avoid the single trail can stick to the asphalt road. On the leisurely descent you can enjoy some strikingly beautiful views of the Rhone Valley. The final section of the route runs from Lax to Fiesch: after the Bodenmann stables above Lax, turn right onto the dirt track to Alter Bach. Free of road traffic, this path leads over a slight incline towards Wiler and onwards to Fiesch.


Fiesch is a starting point for lots of great mountain bike tours. Visit the local tourist office for information.
