Description of the activity

Vineyards and culinary delicacies Some of the best wines in Switzerland mature on the sunny side of the Rhône Valley. Your cycling trip on the Valais Wine Trail takes you through this romantic scenery. Vineyards line the path on your way towards the eastern part of the valley, past the churches and castles of Sion to the market place in Leuk. On the way, you’ll enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Valais mountains and a variety of culinary delicacies. Itinerary Day 1: Arrival in Martigny | Martigny – Sion You’ll leave your luggage in Martigny. An energetic up and down on a steep sun-kissed southern slope, through well-tended vineyards, small wine villages and historic spots such as Saillon with the mini-vineyard of the well-known forger Farinet, and Chamoson, with the octagonal tower of St-Pierre-de-Clages. After your arrival in Sion a tasting of wines from Valais awaits you. Details: Approx. 40 km / 485 m ascent / 470 m descent Day 2: Sion – Leuk French-style joie de vivre in Sion, the quaint main town in Valais, back-breaking work in the hot, steep vineyard slopes, perspiring round bends on tiny, boiling-hot mountain roads. To understand the wine culture in Valais better, you’ll visit the wine museums in Siders and Salgesch. Together with the fabulous views on offer today, this is a feast for all your senses. Details: approx. 50 km / 1,395 m ascent / 1,235 m descent Day 3: Departure or individual extension Key elements A comfortable start on the first day, after which the trip becomes more difficult.
