This sunny round is not only interesting from the sporting side. Sunny hamlets, sacred buildings and rustic mountain villages are part of the programme.
Distance 21 km
Thanks to the sun-exposed location, this easy route is rideable in spring and late into autumn. The route leads through the historic town of Leuk high into the "Sonnenberge" mountains to the secluded hamlets of "Lichten" and "Brunnen" to Guttet. The Valais high trail takes you to the rustic mountain village of Albinen. After an extensive break, you will have earned yourself a "rushing dessert". A descent over racy natural paths and playful trails through forest and vines brings you back to Leuk with a broad smile.
Albinen is one of the most beautiful and original mountain villages in the whole canton of Valais. Discover the narrow streets and tanned houses and attics. Pay a visit to Leuk Castle, restored by Mario Botta, and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Rhone Valley from the castle tower.
