The Cycling Experience.
Gravel Bike and Road Cycling
You’ll visit the origin of the most famous river in Europe by bike. On gravel roads and forest trails, you’ll discover the Surselva with the imposing Rheinschlucht (Rhine gorge), picturesque villages and lush green meadows. You’ll stop at turquoise lakes, dizzying observation decks and thunderous waterfalls. Steep ascents are rewarded with fast descents. Experience all the highlights along the route from the historic Alpine town of Chur to the mythical Lake Toma at the Oberalp Pass.
Graubünden has never experienced such diversity. Your journey starts in Chur, the oldest city in Switzerland where you’ll find the source of the Rhine at the foot of the San Bernardino Pass. On your way, you’ll experience the exciting history of Graubünden in fast motion: The legendary Viamala, a thunderous, deep gorge full of dramas and legends; secret gold bunkers in the mountain; the Pratval castle, where the freedom hero Jörg Jenatsch murdered his adversary; and the ceiling paintings in the chapel of St. Martin, the "Sixtina of the Alps".
