The Rhone-Route connects – between Oberwald and Geneva – Three completely different types of landscapes: In the Goms, the landscape is alpine and the route consists for the most part of downhill rides with an occasional rise. In Brig, the Rhone valley widens. Nowhere in Switzerland, is there more sunshine than here in the Wallis. Another change of scenery in Villeneuve. The wide, light flooded area of the Lake of Geneva on one side, the wine hills with sounding names on the other side of the route accompany the cyclist on his way towards the goal of Geneva. The Rhone-route offers scenic and cultural variety and the flat route profile makes it perfect for casual cyclists as well.
Arrival in the Goms, the wide valley oft he young Rhone, with the remarkable, sunburnt wooden houses.
In this part of Switzerland, the Rhone is still called the Rotten. You ride through the sunny high valley towards Brig. In the evening you visit the World Nature Forum in the neighbouring village of Naters with information to the UNESCO World Heritage – Region Jungfrau-Aletsch.
The main valley in the Valais widens, sun warms the dry mountain slopes. Between Leuk and Sierre an unruly part of the Rhone, and the Pfynwald, a nature reserve on a huge mound of glacier detritus; this natural park marks also the borderline between German and French speaking Valais.
The capital Sion shows its historic castles, churches and mansions. The lower Rhonetal is dominated by the high-alpine scenery of the Dents du Midi. From the heights, a round tower guards Martigny with its famous art collection of the Foundation Gianadda. At the valley’s narrowest point, St-Maurice guards golden church treasures.
From Villeneuve onwards you can enjoy the views of sunny Lake Geneva, the panorama of Savoyen Alps and little wine-grower villages of Lavaux. On the “Swiss Riviera” Achâteau de Chillon and the lake promenade of Montreux – with jazz festival in July – invite you to rest and enjoy. Visit the Olympic museum of Lausanne.
You pass the market town Morges and ride along the Lake of Geneva with the Mont-Blanc massif in view. The free shore gets rarer, the villas and yachts get bigger, and soon the metropolis of Geneva announces itself with boulevards and the 140 metre high water jet «Jet d’eau».
