Bike Trails

Visp – Zermatt Bike Trail 

The Visp – Zermatt bike trail runs through the most deeply cut valley in Switzerland. It is 37 kilometres long and climbs almost 1,400 vertical metres. With views of the most spectacular mountains in Switzerland – the Dom, Täschhorn and Weisshorn – this route should definitely be on the map for all cyclists. The single track runs through forests and meadows, over the scree of the Randa rockfall and past many dry stone walls.

Between Visp and Stalden the bike trail sometimes runs through vineyards. A highlight for cyclists is the section Kalpetran – St. Niklaus, and from Randa the rockfall of 1991 and the Bis glacier with the 4,505-metre-high Weisshorn are an amazing sight. The sometimes strenuous climb from Täsch to Zermatt provides a challenging spurt to the finish.

The route is uniformly signposted and can be ridden in both directions. There are picnic areas and toilet facilities at various points along the entire route from Visp to Zermatt.
