This scenic loop takes in nearby hamlets and farmsteads. A short section leads through Arbaz before a climb back up to Anzère.
Starting in Anzère, the Chamossaire Tour passes through the Gô pastures before leading into the valley of the Combe d’Arbaz, study site in winter for Switzerland’s national Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF). The descent continues along an unsurfaced road towards Arbaz. The climb back up to Anzère leads through the district of Chamossaire, which bears the name of a famous local summit.
When you reach the Bisse d’Ayent, take a break from riding to stroll along the historical irrigation channel, which carries water from early June to October.
