Description

Day 1: Grimsel Pass
Individual arrival at Grimsel Pass and hotel accommodation.

Day 2: Grimsel Pass - Iseltwald (45 Km)
A very significant alpine landscape for the scenic diversity of the panorama: reservoirs and power stations surrounded by gray-green granite mountains. You will ride down a steep descent towards the Aare valley and then towards Meiringen and the Sherlock Holmes museum. Then you can rest along the fascinating Brienz lake before crossing a hill and arriving in Iseltwald.

Day 3: Iseltwald - Bern (45 Km)
Today you will pedal along the Aare river bike path, towards Thun, the gateway to the Bernese Oberland, the wide Aaretal: large villages, open fields and a powerful river, that flows through fertile and lush meadows. Finally, you will reach the capital Bern, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 4: Bern - Biel (50 Km)
After breakfast, you will reach Lake Wohlen, a bird's paradise: you can also see a power plant and a nuclear reactor here. Then you will follow the Aare, passing through the Land of Lakes (Seeland), a huge fertile vegetable garden, thanks to the Hagneck canal. Passing through reed beds and woods, Biel Lake will introduce you to the lively hustle and bustle of the bilingual city of Biel.

Day 5: Biel - Solothurn (30 Km)
Today the Aare river bike path runs along the Nidau-Büren canal, the Häftli circuit and the Witi, where hares and storks are gathered. Nearby, the Aare river flows slowly; in the distance, the towers of St. Ursen Cathedral announce the Baroque city of Solothurn.

Day 6: Solothurn - Aarau (60 Km)
The so-called city of ambassadors, Solothurn, is considered the most beautiful Baroque city in Switzerland: here, Italian Grandeur mixes with French charm and Swiss solidity. From here, you will continue along the Aare river bike path, towards Aarau, the capital of Canton Aargau, in the Swiss Mittelland, which is named after the river on which it sits.

Day 7: Aarau
After breakfast, end of services.
