Description

Vineyards and culinary delicacies

Some of the best wines in Switzerland mature on the sunny side of the Rhône Valley. Your cycling trip on the Valais Wine Trail takes you through this romantic scenery. Vineyards line the path on your way towards the eastern part of the valley, past the churches and castles of Sion to the market place in Leuk. On the way, you’ll enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Valais mountains and a variety of culinary delicacies.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Martigny | Martigny – Sion

You’ll leave your luggage in Martigny. An energetic up and down on a steep sun-kissed southern slope, through well-tended vineyards, small wine villages and historic spots such as Saillon with the mini-vineyard of the well-known forger Farinet, and Chamoson, with the octagonal tower of St-Pierre-de-Clages. After your arrival in Sion, a tasting of wines from Valais awaits you.

Details: Approx. 40 km / 485 m ascent / 470 m descent

Day 2: Sion – Leuk

French-style joie de vivre in Sion, the quaint main town in Valais, back-breaking work in the hot, steep vineyard slopes, perspiring round bends on tiny, boiling-hot mountain roads. To understand the wine culture in Valais better, you’ll visit the wine museums in Siders and Salgesch. Together with the fabulous views on offer today, this is a feast for all your senses.

Details: approx. 50 km / 1,395 m ascent / 1,235 m descent

Day 3: Departure or individual extension

Key elements

A comfortable start on the first day, after which the trip becomes more difficult. The ride through the vineyards on the sunny slopes of the Rhône Valley on the second day is challenging. The tour takes place on quiet side roads in the middle of the unique alpine scenery that is typical of Valais.
