Switzerland 8-day Self-guided Cycling Tour

The Rhone-Route connects  - between Oberwald and Geneva – Three completely different types of landscapes: In the Goms, the landscape is alpine and the route consists for the most part of downhill rides with an occasional rise. In Brig, the Rhone valley widens. Nowhere in Switzerland, is there more sunshine than here in the Wallis.

Another change of senery in Villeneuve. The wide, light flooded area of the Lake of Geneva on one side, the wine hills with sounding names on the other side of the route accompany the cyclist on his way towards the goal of Geneva.
