2-Day Mountain Bike Tour Jungfrau Route
Do you love to mountain bike and to try some new trails with a bunch of lovely and experienced people while exploring stunning Alpine landscapes? Join us for an amazing mountain bike tour (up- and) downhill weekend in the Berner Oberland region! This 2-day event will be led by our mountain bike specialist Stefan.
What’s the plan?
We will meet at Grindelwald station at 09:45 on Saturday and take the PostAuto to Grosse Scheidegg. We will start our ride from there, cycling past the breathtaking Bachsee at 2265m. We can stop there for lunch. Once we’re back in Grindelwald, we will start our uphill towards Kleine Scheidegg.
We will stop halfway through to have dinner and spend the night at a Berghaus.
On Sunday, after our breakfast at the Berghaus, we will get back on the saddle and ride all the way up to Kleine Scheidegg, before starting a long and lovely downhill, overlooking the magical Lauterbrunnen valley. We will stop in the stunning village of Wengen for lunch. Once we’re in the valley, we will head to Interlaken where we can catch a train back to Zurich.
