Escape… and set off to discover the natural wealth of Crans-Montana, as you head up towards the Tièche Valley. Although a few sections are technical, this route is still accessible to everyone, as it is mostly on wide unsurfaced mountain tracks. The wonderful panoramic views and unspoiled nature in the Aminona region are without a doubt the highlights of this excursion. Several refreshment possibilities offer a place to eat and charge your e-bike on the way.
