Switzerland: Valais

Mountain Biking the Valais Matterhorn Region

  • Venture into the alpine homeland of the majestic Matterhorn
  • Follow exceptional mountain biking trails down the flanks of the Rhone and Nanztal Valleys
  • Unwind in Leukerbad, renowned for its historical thermal spa and springs

Home to the infamous Matterhorn, Valais in Switzerland is a land full of contrasts. From majestic mountains at 4,000m high and fascinating glaciers, to unspoilt valleys and sprawling vineyards, there's something for every adventure seeker to relish on this trip. Accounting for almost 40% of Switzerland's wine production, Valais is a true paradise for wine lovers.

This sun-kissed valley enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year which bathes the mountains and meadows in a magnificent light. Spectacular mountain bike trails meander over mountain slopes and through speckled forests as you delight in the awe that Valais has to offer you.

You'll be welcomed each night by traditional alpine hospitality and delicious regional food at our 3* and 4* hotels. Most of your accommodations are situated in beautiful mountain villages and feature a wellness centre for you to relax in after your days mountain biking.
