From the high mountains surrounding Crans-Montana to the magnificent natural rock amphitheatre of Leukerbad. Stage 2 of the Valais Cycling Tour takes you down into Sierre, the city of the sun, then back up via the vineyards of Salquenen.
When leaving Crans-Montana, take the time to admire the numerous peaks above 4,000 metres during your 400m descent. After you dive into the Rhone Valley you will reach the town of Sierre before beginning the final ascent through the vineyards around the villages of Salqenen and Varen. Once above the road cuts into a cliff as you enter into the Leuk valley and into Leukerbad, famous for its thermal pools!
