Breithorn Bike

This route from Lauchernalp to Wiler is a pleasure for experts and experienced children alike. The fun-filled descent with a view of the Breithorn in the Lötschental follows a single trail to the traditional mountain village of Weissenried with its lovely chapel. It then runs along the Lonza via Ried to the destination.
Lauchernalp lies on the sunny southern slope of the Lötschental valley, nestled in an impressive mountain landscape between the Valais and Bernese Alps. After a cable car ride to Lauchernalp, the route begins eastwards to the hamlet of Fischbiel before ascending for just under a kilometre to the Netzbord.

With a view of the Breithorn the single trail fun begins: First with technically challenging passages and afterwards increasingly easier, the path winds its way downhill to the little village of Weissenried high above the Lötschental. The panorama across the valley is particularly beautiful from here. It’s also worth stopping off at the chapel built in 1787 and dedicated to St. George, the “dragon slayer”, whose altarpiece can be found inside. The tour then leads to the hamlet of Ried, before returning along the Lonza river to the cable car valley station in Wiler.

Whilst this route is designed to be a fun descent, it isn’t a flow trail or a classic downhill run. The route is equally suitable for keen leisure cyclists or families. Ambitious riders will find it ideal for a morning warm-up or an optional extension of the tour from Leukerbad or Jeizinen. Following the route in the opposite direction is not recommended.
