While the Sanetsch pass may not be the most well-known climb in the Valais, it is undoubtedly one of the finest and most demanding. Starting from the altitude of the Rhone Valley to reach a summit at 2200 metres, this epic climb will inspire much respect!
The road to Sanetsch takes you through all the stages of Alpine vegetation. From the river plain to the high mountains, this pristine pass is a real gem for bike lovers. As you attack the slopes of this incredible climb, you pass through the Valais vineyards, through forests filled with larch and spruce trees, and finally high Alpine pastures in front of the beautiful Tsanfleuron glacier. There are surprises after every turn, leaving you comparing one landscape after another in a battle to determine which view is the prettiest.
Extend your trip by climbing the Col du Pillon on the way back. Normally you profit from a tailwind when cycling up the Rhone Valley.
