SWISS Alps Bike Tour
Explore Alpine climbs, old gravel tracks, and immaculate cobbles near Andermatt.
All around there seemed to be perfection: perfect, lush grass, every blade greener than the next; perfect, happy cows, their tinkling bells singing mountain carols; perfectly jagged mountains, a light dusting of snow creating high contrast in the golden morning light.
And as we approached the Tremola, we caught our first glimpse of its perfect, precise cobblestones—like a carpet of stones.
Perfect, precise—these are not words that would normally be used to describe cobblestones. But in Switzerland, the cobbles are immaculate. And when you consider that these rocks have been resting high above the valley floor for nearly 100 years, this 5-kilometer stretch of Gotthardpass doesn’t seem entirely real. But for 24 glorious switchbacks, the road is a snaking sliver of man’s creation among the wilds of the Alps.
Yet Switzerland, for all its precision and perfection, is also filled with the rugged and remote, the dirt climbs and the forested track. High above the valley, off the beaten path, Switzerland’s reputation for exactness falls away and you’re left with a craggy mountainscape ripe for exploration.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SWISS ALPS BIKE TOUR
There are few places so pristine, so picturesque. Switzerland could be described as a dreamscape for cycling, trail running, and anything else that involves being outside in nature.
From the majestic mountains to the immaculate craftsmanship of the buildings and roads and bridges; from the perfect window boxes filled with geraniums to the crisp red Swiss flags fluttering on nearly every house, this country exudes attractiveness.
Here is a sampling of what we will explore:
Chocolate, cowbells, immaculate cobbles, and alpine gravel.
