Featuring a varied descent spanning roughly 1,200 altitude metres, the tour from Giw to Visp is a real enduro highlight of the Valais Alps.
Distance 12.2 km
The Giw mountain station is easily accessible via chairlift from Visperterminen. Before heading off, bikers can stop by the terrace of the mountain restaurant to treat themselves to a coffee and enjoy the view of the Weisshorn, the Mischabel range, and the imposing Bietschhorn. Afterwards, the trail fun begins in earnest: a clear and wide trail with multiple descents awaits bikers on the first downhill section from Giw to Muttji. The route then levels out on its way to Hüoterhüsi, before passing through the picturesque hamlet of Ara on its way to Hotee. From there, the single trail is a real enduro highlight: the varied, winding flow trail is embedded in the forest as if carved by the hand of an artist. The tour ends in Visp, where the charming old town is well worth a visit – its numerous restaurants with garden terraces give it an Italian vibe.
The terrace of Giw mountain restaurant offers a breathtaking view of the Bietschhorn.
