Discovering the Rhone Valley: this tour lets you explore the beauty of the Rhone Valley as well as the villages and hamlets on both sides of the river. A certain level of fitness will make this moderately difficult route all the more enjoyable.
The tour starts and ends at the tourist office in Fiesch. Begin by riding towards Lax until the tennis court at the end of the village. Turn left here and cross the Rhone bridge by the power station. After a short distance across country you'll reach Binntalstrasse, which leads up to Ernen. Once there, take the road towards Alpe Frid before switching to the dirt track that runs uphill to Mühlebach. The tour continues along the asphalt road to Steinhaus, followed by a dirt track to the Rhone bridge by Niederwald. Make a sharp right turn here onto the signposted Ritzweg path and follow it until Bodmen. From there, ride up to Furkastrasse and cross it by Blitzingen. Turn right onto Chastenbielstrasse after a few metres, then shortly afterwards turn left into the tunnel through the avalanche dam. Now follow the dirt track up to the hamlets of Gadme and Ammere until the path rejoins Chastenbielstrasse. This road will lead you back to Furkastrasse, which you should follow towards Fiesch. To make a detour to Niederwald, turn right onto the old Furkastrasse. The final stage runs along the new Furkastrasse from Niederwald back to Fiesch.
