Schwiizer Rundi V

15.06. – 21.06.2024

Alpine magic on two wheels

Scuol to Lausanne

Discover Switzerland on unknown paths. That was and remains the motto of the Schwiizer Rundi. In the fifth edition, we will again cycle on mostly unknown routes from the Engadine to Lake Geneva. We will pass rather unknown villages like Cuvaglia, Getwin or Leytron, but also more well-known places like Oberwald, Verbier, Sion or Aigle are on the programme. With the passes like Albula, Furka or Hongrin we enjoy Switzerland from its most beautiful side.

Although there are again some metres in altitude, the routes are easy to ride due to their relatively short distance. So if you like enjoyment of Switzerland, a dash of humour and sociability with a bit of calf burning, this is the tour for you.
