The program

Crans-Montana, Valais, Switzerland

Day 0: Crans-Montana

Welcome to the sun trap of the Swiss Alps

Here we are in Crans-Montana, perched on a plateau with a view over some of the most beautiful alpine peaks, from the Matterhorn to the Dent Blanche, or even the Weisshorn… Can you recognise any of them?
Make the most of this first day by taking a walk around this magical place and appreciating the scenery.

Day 1: Crans-Montana – Leukerbad

From a glacier to thermal baths

The day begins with a climb… in a gondola, up to 3’000 metres. Take a minute to admire the splendour of the Plaine Morte glacier and its 360-degree panoramic views, before attacking the first descent in an almost lunar landscape. A continuous sequence of single flow trails is guaranteed to keep a smile on your face for the rest of the day.

After a few more pedal strokes, we’ll arrive at our destination for the evening, and we’ll dive (quite literally) into the delights that Leukerbad can offer us. A spa evening you say? Perfect!

Day 2: Leukerbad – Lötschental

The magic of Lötschental

A magnificent traverse brings us to the magical valley of Lötschental. Along a series of flow trails we’ll have an incredible view over the Bietschhorn, all the way to our historical hotel.

A small walk will allow us to discover the tradition of the Tchäggätä, the region’s iconic monsters, and whet our appetite for a gastronomic evening meal. Bon appétit!

Day 3: Lötschental – Binntal

A wild mountain pass at 2’600 metres

Start the day right with a sequence of fun single trails, before another ride… but this time on a panoramic train! Time to take a quick break before the most challenging part of the day: the ascent of a 2’600 metre high alpine pass. At the top, the views will open up towards the untouched valley of Binntal.

It’s time for a quieter evening in a charming mountain refuge. What a magical place!

Day 4: Binntal – The Aletsch glacier

Ride to the UNESCO Aletsch glacier.

Today we’re heading in the direction of one of the most beautiful glaciers in the Alps. By riding on a ridge overhanging the glacier, we’ll be able to take our time to appreciate this UNESCO world heritage site. After such a magical day, we’ll spend the evening being dazzled even more by the splendid alpine panorama surrounding us.

Day 5: Aletsch glacier

One last descent for the road!

After a coffee on a terrace, make the most of the last descent which will bring us back into the Rhone valley.  It’s already time to go home, with a smile on our faces and the memories of an incredible alpine adventure in our minds. You’ll be ready to try the 3 Country Haute Route next!
