After the adventures of the day before, this eighth leg takes place over several kilometres of gently sloping single track. Start with a steep climb from Randa, then follow the path to the Europaweg and across the Charles Kuonen Bridge, which at 494 metres is the longest suspension bridge in the world. Continue on the Europaweg, which undulates along the Matter Valley and allows you to see more of the Matterhorn with every step. Make sure you stop at the Täsch mountain pasture for a snack before continuing on your way. A steeper slope leads you to Blauherd, with ski lifts providing access to numerous hikes and viewpoints. Head for the Mountain Lodge Ze Seewjinu via the Stellisee and the Grünsee, and enjoy a good shower and a hot meal.
