Alpen-Tour

The «Alp» in Alp tour does not only refer to our mountains but also to our delightful alpine huts or Alphütten, each one as inviting as the next to offer refreshments to the hungry biker.
This demanding tour kicks off at the Tourist Information Office in Lenzerheide. We leave the village heading south and turn towards Obervaz. After about 300m, we turn into Kanalweg and continue comfortably along this towpath. After a short downhill, we tackle our first climb through a larch forest up to Alp God. Here the vast meadow invites us to take our first break and enjoy the views. The next stage will make any biker's heart beat a little faster. Still climbing gently and overlooking the majestic Lenzerhorn, we ride over hill and dale and past herds of grazing cattle. This brings us to Fops Alpine Hut, where we get spoiled with fresh cheese and spicy bacon. After a short downhill, we get down to business. The single trail that we now take is one of a kind, and whoever manages to make it to Alp Nova without putting a foot down has earned the right to call himself a «pro». The subsequent downhill stretch to Alp Lavoz however compensates for any hardships suffered before.

Make sure you take time once again to enjoy the view over the valley with its lake, Lenzerhorn and the three peaks of Ela, Mitgel and Tinzenhorn. Alpine rose and juniper bushes line the next stage, which leads us past the television tower to our next alpine hut.

From now on, it is downhill all the way! First we head towards Sartons, where the sunny deck of the Sartons Mountain Inn beckons us to enjoy some refreshments while soaking in the rays. From here we cycle along the road until we reach the youth hostel, where we turn right onto a forest road and follow a nature trail down to Heidsee Lake, to end our trip with a cool swim in the lake or a refreshing ice cream at the Lido.

Hint
Restaurant choices: Alp Fops, Berghaus Tgantieni, Acla Grischuna, Junehütte, Restaurant Stätz Damiez, Sartons, Lido am Heidsee, Restaurant Scharmoin.
Hint
A little easier: It is possible to opt for the upper trail from Tgantieni onwards (be careful: during season this trail is popular with hikers!). The trail then leads directly down into the valley through Spoina.
Hint
More challenging: For those who still haven't had enough, there remains the east side to explore. The easily negotiable Alpstrasse leads us through a dense pine forest all the way up to the Scharmoin middle station, and those who wish can complete their Alp tour with a visit to Alp Scharmoin.

Hints

Tours with an e-mountain bike
The tourism organisations had these routes registered specifically as e-mountain bike routes. Technically, they are not too difficult, no passages where the bike has to be carried, short sections where it needs to be pushed, and doable with one battery charge (max. 1000 -1200 m altitude difference).
