Description

A stone's throw from the bustling center of the canton of Valais, the largely unspoiled Lötschental awaits you. Here you fight your way up along narrow roads, but the effort is well worth it, because once you reach the top, fantastic panoramas await you. The ride back to civilization then takes you first on lonely trails, before you pass through vineyards back to the bustling town of Sierre. Too much hustle and bustle? Then the lonely Val d'Anniviers is just right. To get in the mood, a trail along the valley flank, as the main course a detour to the Lac de Moiry dam and finally a ride down to Grimentz. The two valleys will inspire you!

 

Tour itinerary

Day 1: Arrival to Brig

Day 2: Brig – Blatten

By bus and train via Goppenstein to Wiler in the Lötschental. If you want to take it easy, take the cable car up to Lauchernalp. If you have enough strength in your legs, you can climb up a serpentine road to Hockenalp. The ride high above the Lötschental with a view of the Langgletscher glacier is a pleasure, the descent down to the valley floor makes you want more. Details: approx. 16 km (of which single trails: 6 km) á 930 m â 790 m

Day 3: Blatten – St-Luc

More Lötschental is on the program today. First leisurely along the valley floor, then with the cable car up to Lauchernalp. After the rigorous climb the day before, you have now almost overcome the greatest difference in altitude. The descent leads in constant ups and downs with magnificent views of the snow-covered Valais peaks out of the Lötschental. From Alp Meiggu the descent begins, leading you with occasional counter ascents up to small hamlets, down into the Rhone valley. From Sierre bus ride to St. Luc. Details: approx. 45 km (of which single trails: 20 km) á 1'315 m â 2'905 m

Day 4: St-Luc – Grimentz | Departure

With the funicular up to Tignousa. From here it goes high above the Val d'Anniviers to Zinal. At the end of the tour, a real highlight follows. The cable car takes you up to almost 2,700 meters to Sorebois and from here it's all downhill. Past the Lac de Moiry reservoir to the small mountain village of Grimentz. After arrival in Grimentz, bus ride to Sierre, luggage pick-up and departure. Details: approx. 29 km (of which single trails: 15 km) á 890 m â 2'500 m

 

Tour charakter

Many altitude meters are overcome by cable car, but again and again there are challenging climbs. Some of the descents are long, and on some days there are over 1,000 meters of descent at a time. Good basic condition is needed for this. The trails are also for average experienced bikers and with E-MTB well doable.
