Description

The downhill ride from the Blauherd station to Zermatt offers everything a biker’s heart desires: five mountain lakes, a magnificent view, a trail rich in variety and the best places to stop for any reason.

  • Marmots and chamois nearby
  • Magnificent views
  • Grünsee: best bathing opportunity

 Blauherd – Lake Stellisee - Fluhalp - Lake Grindjisee - Grünsee - Gant - Lake Moosjisee - Findeln - Sunnegga – Patrullarve – Zermatt

(The trail can also be ridden in the other direction, from Zermatt to Blauherd – some sections steep and difficult.)

We recommend:

  • Bike in excellent working order
  • Helmet, gloves and bell
  • Clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof)
  • Food and drink

After a few flowing downhill kilometres, you reach Findeln, where you can once again replace some of those calories you burned in one of the 5 mountain restaurants. This is just one of many culinary highlights.

 

Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).

  • Always wear gloves and a helmet.
  • Use marked bike trails and routes only, and observe all signposting. Please close gates after passing through.
  • Please be considerate to walkers and to plants and animals. As a rule, walkers have priority.
  • When planning, take into account participants’ fitness level and ability: some routes lead above 3,000 metres.
  • All riding is at one’s own risk.
