Cycling in Switzerland includes Cooling Down in the Lakes
The lakes route definitely has the right to its name because altogether there are 16 lakes on route between Vevey on Lake Geneva and Lake Constance. You will get many splashes of colour along the hilly Mittelland route through Switzerland from Lake Geneva to Lake Constance. Highlights include lakes, rivers, vast plains, quiet valleys, towns and villages, industry, agriculture, nature, technology, Lake Biel, the Grand Marais, the Swiss camargue and the granary Waadtland. Amongst that all you get to cycle through both the French and the German speaking part of Switzerland.
Top Bike Tours in Switzerland
A Swiss mixture – the Aare, the three lakes and the Jura. Switzerland is the classic bike country. The Aare route starts in Gletsch, high up in the mountains. You can avoid this by starting in Meiringen and then there are no significant hills worth mentioning. Get to know the charm of the province, the peasantry and the unaltered nature on your way to Bern.
The Rhone Route, which stretches from Aigle to Genf, unites three very different types of scenery. At first there is alpine scenery, then the vast Rhone valley in Wallis and then lastly the wide very light Lake Geneva where there are vineyards on one side and your route on the other.
The Nord-Süd-Route (the north-south-route) runs from Airolo in Ticino. It is a historical alpine crossing that goes over the Gotthardpass with impressive views over Switzerland’s varied and picturesque landscape - the Jura, the hilly Mittelland region, the fantastic Lake Lucerne, the Schöllenenschlucht (a gorge), the pass crossing and then the downhill ride towards the south into the milder climate in Tessin.
