Itinerary

Saturday:
Val d’Anniviers: If you arrive by plane, we will pick you up from the airport in Zurich (ZRH) or Geneva (GVA) and head directly for Val d’Anniviers/Wallis, where we will be starting our journey. In the later afternoon, you can build up your bikes (or try out your rental bike) check all the gear, before we discuss the weekly plan and do some last minute food shopping.

Sunday:
Val d’Anniviers: We will start our week by using the local cable cars to avoid some meters in altitude. On beautiful trails, we will head head to a beautiful mountain hut where we can have luch and enjoy the view. In the afternoon, we will follow a high-altitude trail towards the end of the valley and then descend through needle-trails to the valley floor. No worries, our bus will bring you back to the hotel.

Monday:
Val d’Anniviers: Todays tour features a great ratio of about 300 meters up and 2500 meters down. First through some rocky sections that then lead into flowy trails through the woods.

Tuesday:
Aletsch: In the morning we will use our van to transfer into the Aletsch region with its huge glacier. Our hotel is located on an Alp as high as 2000 meters and can only be reached via cable car. In the afternoon, we will do a half day tour to see the glacier for the first time.

Wednesday:
Aletsch: Today, we will start early and head up high by cable car. You will have the chance to ride alongside the largest glacier in the Alps and then enjoy some local specialties at mountain hut. In the late afternoon, we will head to Zermatt where we will be located the next days.

Thursday:
Zermatt: After a great breakfast at the hotel, we will head for Gornergrat railway that will bring us to almost 3100 meters above sea level. We will start with some of the easier descents and adjust according to the groups preferences in the afternoon.

Friday:
Zermatt: Luckily there are lots of other great trails in Zermatt… all cable car accessible ;-). In the evening we will head for a great last meal and some drinks with the whole crew to celebrate the week.

Saturday:
Zermatt: Return shuttle is provided for you to the airport, trainstation or carpark (whatever is best for you).
