In the Bernese Oberland it is all about working up a sweat. There are more than 180 mountain bike routes to discover. On the tour from Meiringen
to the Engstlenalp ambitious mountain bikers have to cover a distance of 50 km and a height difference of 1710 m. Once they arrive on top, they can stop at the lake Engstlensee to recharge before it goes down again. In summer, Gstaad
is a magnet for cross-country bikers. The 300 km of mountain bike trails change between fast-paced to leisurely. The Bernese Unterland also has a lot to offer: Bikers will find a suitable challenge in the Nature Park Gantrisch (German)
, which offers 200 km of bike routes. The Gurten
(German) lets the hearts of downhill fans beat faster. The trail runs over 2 km and provides bikers with jumps of up to 10 m and different banked curves.
