Swiss Alps Self-guided Cycling Tour

Alpine panorama route, Switzerland's most beautiful passes, approx. 470-540km in 8-days

The Alpine Panorama Route crosses the northern Alpine foreland with its many passes and gorges, tradition-rich culture, settlements and mountain farms. The strenuous, stamina-testing trip is rewarded with spectacular views.

Tour character: challenging

This the "King of all routes" in Veloland Switzerland!

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Lustenau

    The day is yours to explore

  • Day 2

    Lustenau – Urnasch/Hemberg, approx. 55 - 70km | +1,240m-1,685m -830m–1,145m

    Uphill and down dale in rolling Appenzell where it͛s said that "every second house is a tavern". Friendly farming country with its own character, a finely structured landscape at the foot of the Santis, marked by a quaint dialect and a dry wit.

  • Day 3

    Urnasch/Hemberg – Linthal, approx. 70 - 80km | +1,060–1,300m -890–1,135m

    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.

  • Day 4

    Linthal – Klausenpass – Beckenried, approx. 75km | +1,585m -1,800m

    On the climb to the Klausenpass: the Urnerboden, the largest Swiss alp. On the other side of the 1948m pass the Schachental, a mountain landscape with the traditional farming method of moving livestock from one grazing ground to the next.

  • Day 5

    Beckenried – Sorenberg, approx. 55km | +1,440m -720m

    Wild when the fohn wind blows: the mighty Vierwaldstattersee with it's impressive panorama. In contrast, the shallow Sarnersee with its Obwalden "Brother Klaus" landscape. A treat for cyclists: the Glaubenbielen Pass (1611m), the steep pass to Entlebuch.

  • Day 6

    Sorenberg - Thun, approx.. 55 - 70 km | +835m-885m -1,435m-1,490m

    After the alpine marshland in rain-rich Glaubenbielen now the biosphere reserve around Schrattenfluh. No less enchanting: the hills and dales of the Emmental, classic, pre-alpine rolling countryside.

  • Day 7

    Thun - Gruyeres, approx. 95 km | +1,675m -1,520m

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

  • Day 8

    Gruyeres – Aigle/Montreux, approx. 65 - 95 km | +1,330m–1,465m -1,645m–1,815m

    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.

  • Day 9
