  • Day 1

    Arrival to St. Margrethen

  • Day 2

    St. Margrethen – Lichtensteig

    Arrival and luggage drop-off in St. Margrethen. Uphill and down dale in rolling Appenzell, where it’s said that «every second house is a tavern». Friendly farming country with its own character, a finely structured landscape at the foot of the Säntis, marked by a quaint dialect and a dry wit.

    Details: 69 km, ↑ 1’755 m ↓ 1’520 m

  • Day 3

    Lichtensteig - Altdorf

    Toggenburg more forested and rugged, a land of nooks and crannies where water once provided work and death. Below the alluvial Linth plain, «Zigerland» with mighty limestone cliffs, Glarus once a textile region of international importance. On the climb to the Klausenpass: the Urnerboden, the largest Swiss alp. On the other side of the 1948m pass the Schächental, a mountain landscape with the traditional farming method of moving livestock from one grazing ground to the next.

    approx. 105 km, ↑ 1'985 m ↓ 2'145 m

  • Day 4

    Altdorf – Sörenberg

    The mighty Vierwaldstättersee with its impressive panorama. In contrast, the shallow Sarnersee in Obwalden. A treat for pedal-pushing fans: the Glaubenbielen Pass (1611m), a steep pass into the Entlebuch.

    Details: approx. 85 km, ↑ 1'635 m ↓ 945 m

  • Day 5

    Sörenberg - Thun

    After the alpine marshland in rain-rich Glaubenbielen you arrive at the biosphere reserve around Schrattenfluh. Not less enchanting: the hills and dales of the Emmental, classic, pre-alpine rolling countryside.

    Details: approx. 55 - 70 km, ↑ 835 – 885 m ↓ 1'435 - 1'490 m

  • Day 6

    Thun - Gruyères

    From «cabbage country» through the rugged Sense ravines to Fribourg im Üechtland. The old city with its cathedral and 200 gothic house facades enjoys a picturesque position in a loop of the river Saane. Delightful landscape and a man-made lake: Lac de la Gruyère, land of «Crème de la Gruyère» and black and white cows. On a hill, the tiny castle town of Gruyère with its busy mass of tourists.

    Details: approx. 95 km, ↑ 1'675 m ↓ 1'520 m

  • Day 7

    Gruyères – Aigle

    Much Quieter in Obergreyerz and uphill through lonely, rugged Alpine pastures to Hongrin, occasionally resounding with army artillery fire. Intoxicating 1000m descent to the mildness of the Rhonetal, a sensuous downhill run through all climate zones. In Aigle luggage retrieval and departure.

    Details: approx. 65 km, ↑ 1’325 m ↓ 1’660 m

If you are into road cycling and would like to see some beautiful Swiss mountain scenery, do not hesitate to go for this tour. The route is very well planned. It is at times challenging but makes you feel accomplished at the end of the day. The hotels were all comfortable and positioned in nice locations with good dinner options nearby. Klausen Pass was the highlight but don't miss the opportunity to take a swim in Thun, the river passing through the city is just so clean. Also I felt very safe while riding my bike on this tour. The drivers in Switzerland are respectful toward cyclists. I would not hesitate to book again. The overall tour concept, organization and logistics were great.
