Starting out from Visp, you follow the same road that leads to the Mattmark dam as far as the village of Saas-Grund. Turning off to the right, three kilometres of continual climbing brings you to the village of Saas-Fee, whose streets are reserved exclusively for pedestrians and electric vehicles.
Starting out from Visp, the first few kilometres of the route are fairly gentle and let you get warmed up before the real ascent, which starts shortly before you reach the village of Stalden. You then turn off to the left in the direction of Saas-Fee, leaving the valley leading to Zermatt on your right. The next few kilometres until you reach Saas-Grund are winding and relatively steep. Here, you make a final change of direction before tackling the last few strenuous kilometres to Saas-Fee. This quiet, car-free resort offers breathtaking, panoramic views of several mountain peaks over 4000 metres in height: Dom, Nadelhorn, Täschhorn, Alphubel, Allalinhorn...
