From single-day rides on stunning ridgelines to multi-day hut-to-hut treks along famous circuits, there is plenty of riding to be done in Switzerland.
Starting in the southwest of Switzerland, you could easily go on a cross-border adventure, heading from La Fouly to Mont Blanc in France or down near Courmayeur in Italy too.
In south-central Switzerland, Valais provides nearly infinite riding options for people looking for a challenge. Spend a day making the scenic run from Verbier to Champery, enjoying views of Lake Champex and the Rhone Valley along the way.
If you’re looking for some smoother, street riding, the famous Grand Raid bike race, goes from Verbier to the village of Griments and makes for a great run on scenic highways.
In the Tre Laghi region of Ticino, there are plenty of excellent trails to check out as well. Spend six days making an incredibly scenic loop. Enjoy amazing views along the way and make some epic downhill runs too.
Switzerland generally has temperate weather, yet varies between specific locations. Summer months tend to be warm and humid with occasional rainfalls. From July to August the daytime temperature ranges from 18 to 28°C.
Mountain biking trips in Switzerland may begin from a number of places. Geneva International Airport (GVA) and Zurich airport (ZRH) are the most common arrival point. From these two, it is easy to transfer to your final destination by bus or rail. Renting a car and driving is also pretty doable.
