Tour schedule:

Day 1

The meeting point for our tour is at Lake Constance, where we spend the first evening. The common evening gives us the opportunity to get to know the other participants and our tour guide will make you curious about the upcoming days.

Day 2

After an extensive breakfast we start rested and ride westwards around Lake Constance. Our first stop will be in Canton Schaffhausen. In Stein am Rhein the Rhine Falls, one of the three largest waterfalls in Europe, await us. After a short refreshment we continue our journey westwards. Along the Rhine and close to the German border we will cross the cantons of Zurich, Aargau, Baselland, Jura and Solothurn. In the late afternoon we reach our hotel in the midlands at the foot of the Jura.

Day 3

We continue west and today we cross our first pass, the Scheltenpass with 1051 m altitude and 12% gradient, which is often underestimated. It connects the canton of Solothurn with the canton of Jura and with it a region where the language changes from German to French. Soon we cross a part of the canton of Bern and continue in the canton of Jura. Along the border with France, we cross the magnificent Doubs Nature Park with its seemingly untouched nature and pass through one of the most important watchmaking regions in Switzerland, the home of TAG-Heuer watches and renowned manufacturers of measuring instruments.

Day 4

Today's route takes us in the direction of Geneva. We take small side roads and change borders again. We skilfully bypass the city of Geneva and for that we have to go high up. Short and crisp, we take a very demanding route up to 1307 m altitude, from where we enjoy a magnificent view of the landscape. On the French side we descend again to Lake Geneva to Évian-les-Bains, where the next hotel awaits us and with it the wonderful French mineral water Evian.

Day 5

After an extensive breakfast we start in south-east direction. Shortly after entering Switzerland we pass the cantons of Vaud and Valais in the Alps. French is spoken here in the west and German in the east, and our tour guide will of course be happy to help you understand. The Valais has a lot to offer, due to the very low rainfall, wine thrives here very well and the highest mountain in the Alps radiates its charm here. We will not reach the Matterhorn, but we will climb the Simplonpass with its 2005 m height. We ride over narrow and winding roads in the direction of Lago Maggiore back to Switzerland, where we reach our hotel in the canton of Ticino, also known as the sun parlour of Switzerland.

Day 6

We start at almost 200 m above zero and will climb up to 2000 m altitude. The route takes us first to the Lago di Lugano and from there further south until shortly before Como. From here, the route goes steadily upwards, we pass the Splügenpass and then enter Switzerland again. Past the reservoir in Sufers we pass through two well-known gorges in the canton of Graubünden. High cliffs, only a few metres apart at the narrowest points, provide pure adrenalin. From here we continue to the Julier Pass, where we reach our hotel in the middle of the "Pearl of Julier".

Day 7

Today we will have a day off from touring. The region has a lot to offer and who likes can explore the surrounding alpine passes (Julierpass, Flüelapass, Albulapass) on their own.

Day 8

After breakfast we start immediately uphill and experience a spectacular pass marathon with a multitude of altitude records. We reach the 2000 m altitude several times and the Umbrailpass with over 2500 m altitude becomes the cream of today's tour. We ride through the beautiful Engadine, experience the "Kitesurfer Paradise of the Alps" and pass the famous St. Moritz. From now on the list of passes will be exciting and almost endless, Bernina Pass, Umbrail Pass, Ofenpas. In the Lower Engadine we leave Switzerland at its easternmost point towards Austria and spend the night in the famous ski resort of Nauders.

Day 9

From Nauders we go to Landeck in Tirol and further west to Ischgl. Soon we reach Bludenz in Vorarlberg and from here our stage destination is not far away. In the late afternoon we reach our hotel at Lake Constance, where we started a few days ago. The last evening together gives us the opportunity to review our experiences of the last days in a comfortable round.

Day 10

Today is goodbye. Exciting riding days are behind us. We were rewarded with unique, beautiful panoramas and feelings that opened our hearts, in an intensity that is unfortunately rarely experienced. It is not a farewell forever, the next adventure is already waiting for us!
