Pedal to the turquoise waters of Cleuson while discovering stunning panoramas.
Distance 31 km
Leave from Haute-Nendaz to first reach Siviez before joining the Cleuson dam. Built between 1946 and 1951, Cleuson can hold 20 million cubic metres of water. It is a reinforced foot-hills dam standing 87 meters high and 420 meters wide at its widest point. But its reputation stems above all from its bluey-green toned waters.
The circuit can be shortened. By parking directly at Siviez, you can reach the Cleuson dam while avoiding the Nendaz-Siviez trip. Or you can enjoy just the Nendaz-Siviez trip. This leg is especially suited to families and electric bikes.
