An adrenaline boost on two wheels
Cycling into the mountains and valleys of Simmental – fun for all levels. Get your pulse racing and enjoy the landscape passing by.
Simmental offers a whole range of bike tours for beginners and advanced riders. From tarmacked roads and natural paths to rocky, and technically challenging mountain trails – with us there is something for everyone. Mountain biking has grown significantly in popularity since the eighties. Thanks to advances in the design and materials used, this high performance sport is safer and more appealing than ever. And the Swiss Alps provide an extremely varied terrain for it. With its gentle pre-alpine and high-alpine landscape, Simmental offers the ideal topographical conditions for cycling. The crossings into the neighbouring valleys of Saanenland and Engstligen/Kandertal are also inviting.
