The Gspon-Brig tour is a varied gem of an allmountain/crosscountry trail with views of the Bernese and Valais Alps as well as a sweeping descent over an exhilarating 1,500 in altitude difference.

Gspon can be reached by cable car from Stalden in just a few minutes. A beautiful trail leads from the mountain station to the Gibidum pass via Sädolwald forest nature reserve. From the high-altitude plateau bikers enjoy an impressive view of the Bernese and Valais Alps. The nearby Lake Gibidumsee is the perfect place for a break in this exceptional mountain landscape. A steep but flowing allmountain trail leads from the Gibidum pass into the wild Nanztal Valley. In the valley, the trail passes the beautiful Nidristi Alp on its way to Schratt, where you can fill up your water bottle at a wooden fountain. The tour continues towards Brig-Glis on a first-class trail that makes for fast and smooth riding after its more technically challenging first section. Brig-Glis offers plenty of options for rounding out the day’s biking with a well-earned meal. The excellent public transport connections mean the town can also be used as a starting point for further bike tours.

Author’s recommendation

The stunning view of the Gibidum pass and the incredible mountain landscape around Lake Gibidumsee are perfect for a relaxing break.

Ich bin vermutlich einer der zitierten Cross-Countrybiker ;-) - Anstieg Gspon - Gibidumpass finde ich sehr schön, abwechslungsreich und mit nur kurzen Schiebepassagen. Abfahrt vom Gibidumpass bis ins Nanztal etwas langweilig. Durchs Nanztal wiederum an vielen Stellen flowige, weiche Trails. Die letzten ca. 2 Km runter nach Glis waren mir etwas zu ruppig, jedoch durchaus fahrbar. Insgesamt eine lohnende Tour mit grossem Spassfaktor.

Danke Dominic für dein differenziertes Feedback. Nur so können wir uns verbessern. Wir haben deinen Kommentar in unser Community beurteilen lassen und haben deren Handlungsempfehlungen umgesetzt. So wurde der Titel «Gspon Enduro» geändert in «Panoramatour Gspon-Brig» und der Trail als «Allmountain/Cross-Country» taxiert sowie die Beschriebe angepasst. Corrado Wyssen Valais/Wallis Promotion
