Discover the old and historical villages around the route. What is more, this route is very sunny and is usable from the beginning of spring.
From Albinen, take a parallel road that goes steeply to Tschingere and St. Barbara. From Leuk, a small part of the circuit is located on the main road towards Erschmatt. At Lichten, you leave the main road and climb towards Guttet. After a 500 metre ascent, you can take a shortcut from Guttet to Thel and climb the last hill through the forest to Albinen.
Have a break in Leuk and visit the castle restored by the swiss architect Mario Botta. You will enjoy a breathtaking view on the Rhone Valley.
