Rhône-Route

From glacier to wine.

The Rhone-Route connects – between Oberwald and Geneva – Three completely different types of landscapes: In the Goms, the landscape is alpine and the route consists for the most part of downhill rides with an occasional rise. In brig, the Rhone valley widens. Nowhere in Switzerland, is there more sunshine than here in the Wallis.

Another change of scenery in Villeneuve. The wide, light flooded area of the Lake of Geneva on one side, the wine hills with sounding names on the other side of the route accompany the cyclist on his way towards the goal of Geneva. The Rhone-Route offers scenic and cultural variety and the flat route profile makes it perfect for casual cyclists as well.

Itinerary

Arrival in the Goms, the wide valley of the young Rhone, with the remarkable, sunburnt wooden houses.

In this part of Switzerland, the Rhone is still called the Rotten. You ride through the sunny high valley towards Brig. In the evening you visit the World Nature Forum in the neigbouring village of Naters with information to the UNESCO World Heritage - Region Jungfrau-Aletsch.

The main valley in the Valais widens, sun warms the dry mountain slopes. Between Leuk and Sierre you leave the Rhone-Route and cycle through the vineyards to wine-grower. After a wine tasting you continue to the castles of Sion.

The capital Sion shows its historic castles, churches and mansions. The lower Rhonetal is dominated by the high-alpine scenery of the Dents du Midi. A world of fertile fruit orchards and vineyards.

From the heights, a round tower guards Martigny on its bend in the Rhone. At the valley’s narrowest point, St-Maurice guards golden church treasures. High mountains and lowlands, Lac Léman hidden behind reeds and defiant Schloss Chillon on the water.

Lac Léman, a small silver sea surrounded by snowy summits and vineyards, e.g. UNESCO World Heritage Lavaux. Along the shores: Vevey, Montreux, and the metropolis of Lausanne, «Olympia City» and nerve centre of the people of Vaud.

Above the terraced La Côte vineyards, below on the lake the market towns of Morges, Rolle, Nyon. Open shore becomes rarer, villas and yachts larger, soon cosmopolitan Geneva greets us with boulevards and its 140m-high water fountain «Jet d'eau».

Tour character

The route guides you the most time downwards with few increases. In the are of Mörel you cycle along a busy street. Starting at Brig the route remains flat and easy to cycle.

Genusstour
Eine Radour nach unserem Geschmack! Tagsüber radelst du durch eine wunderschöne Landschaft und kannst die kulturelle Sehenswürdigkeiten anschauen und am Abend genießt du ein Glas Wein und leckeres Essen. Eine perfekte Kombination. Die Weinverkostung am dritten Tag stellte sich als Höhepunkt unserer Radreise heraus. Eine beeindruckendes Weingut und sehr guter Wein. Die Tour hat uns so gut gefallen, dass wir bestimmt noch mal die Rhône-Route fahren werden.
