The Sion Castles Tour takes cyclists on a delightful journey of discovery through the Sion region. The itinerary passes through the municipalities of Savièse, Grimisuat, Arbaz, Ayent and St-Léonard. The route is full of variety, with ever-changing scenery. You ride in forest, across terraced vineyards and through villages, with glorious views of the Valais mountains and the two castles that dominate the city of Sion: Valère and Tourbillon. Arbaz, at an altitude of 1,140 metres, is the highest point of this fairly demanding ride, best suited to keen cyclists in good physical shape.
