Description

Set off on a sequence of four exceptional days inviting you to wind your way along the Valais’ most beautiful biking routes to conquer its legendary passes. Starting from Martigny, this tour takes you through magnificent scenery, on roads with moderate traffic, through the vineyards of the Rhône Valley to the fabled peaks. While the ascent of the Sanetsch pass, the crowning stage of this getaway, enables you to discover one of the Alps’ great giants, other Alpine passes such as the Croix de Coeur, the Forclaz, the Planches and the Lein all contribute to this not-to-be-missed experience.
