E-Bike-Tour Furggstalden

Der malerische Weiler Furggstalu



The trail goes through the larch forest from Saas-Almagell via Furggstalden almost to Furggu and then back the same way. This is a short trail that is suitable for everyone.




8.59 km


1:20 h


The trail starts at the village square of Saas-Almagell and follows the road towards Mattmark. After the end of the village (after the carpenter's workshop and the large stable), the trail turns left by the barbecue area with the lake. The gradient increases, and the route leads through the larch forest. From time to time, you have a view down to the equalising basin in Zer Meiggeru.

At the third hairpin bend, you are already in Furggstalu, which invites you to linger and enjoy the restaurants and the somewhat different view of Saas-Fee, the Mattmark reservoir and the Saas mountains.

From Furggstalu, you can continue to follow the road and ride past Wasserbodu and under the lifts to the parking area of Alp Furggu.

Afterwards, the same trail leads back to Saas-Almagell.
