Intro

⮱The Alpine Panorama Route crosses the northern Alpine foreland with its many passes and gorges, tradition-rich culture, settlements and mountain farms. The strenuous, stamina-testing trip is rewarded with spectacular views.

Description

⮱This is anything but a stroll. In return the Alpine panorama route offers magnificent views and leads along trails with plenty of passes and gorges which are also ideal for road cyclists, through the northern foothills of the Alps with its traditional cultures, settlements and Alpine farms. Highlights along the tough route through the typical image of Switzerland are the historic small towns of Thun and Fribourg, the two key points of a particularly attractive stage. The rapid descent from a height of over 1,000 metres to the finish in Aigle provides a spectacular finale.
