Tour description

Also suitable for an e-bike tour!

The classic from Gstaad with two Alpine passes, white mountain peaks, a non-direct climb to les Voëttes and the great descent to Château-d’Oex.
Almost till Feutersoey warm-up on the bike trail and admire the approach to the coming „peaks“. Follow on the main road up to Col du Pillon. From Gsteig, the pass rises in serveral changing grades along the high peaks up to Col du Pillon. The cablecar from the Glacier 3000 is already visible from the distance. After the descent to Les Diablerets, follow at Vers l’Église the steep side road down to Les Voëttes. From here, the Col des Mosses is almost done. The final descent to Chateau-d’Oex creates a lot of fun. The large part of good asphalt, wide curves and also the two flat parts can be driven with a lot of pressure onto the pedals. In Chateau-d’Oex, Rougemont and Saanen , it pays off to drive through the villages and maybe have a coffee stop.


Attention at the descent from the Col du Pillon: bumpy floor, steep.
On weekends in good weather, there is a lot of traffic on the Col du Pillon and on the Col des Mosses. Take advantage of the morning.
