Biking with breathtaking views
Great trails, a breathtaking panorama with the Great Aletsch Glacier as the main protagonist, fresh Valais mountain air and the most liberating nature experience in the Alps: Welcome to the Aletsch Arena, welcome to your mountain bike Eldorado. Whether with pure muscle power or with electric assistance - here you can enjoy a limitless biking experience. In the Aletsch Arena you can enjoy riding on two wheels through the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch. Discover the unique natural scenery with the Great Aletsch Glacier and a whole series of 4000m peaks.
4,700 meters altitude gain, 27 billion tons of ice: The Stoneman Glaciara is the new mountain bike experience by Roland Stauder in Switzerland. The route comprises three stages leading up to the Great Aletsch Glacier – the mightiest ice stream of Europe – and back to Mörel. The King’s Ascent follows, with almost 1,600 meters of elevation gain: an old military road leads steeply up to Breithorn pass at an altitude of 2,451 m. Next comes the descent into the Binntal valley. From then on, it follows the Rhone river towards Obergoms – through ancient, mystical villages, past monuments steeped in history and by inviting cafes.
