Saflischpass bike tour

Mountainbikeroute

A very challenging and long mountain bike tour.

The ascent to the Breithorn mountain/Furggen is probably the most difficult challenge for mountain bikers in the Binntal Landscape Park.
The route from Grengiols to the Breithorn is about 15 km long with a difference in altitude of about 1,500 metres and there is not one place to rest on a level section.
At the top of the Breithorn mountain however, you are rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of the entire region. Be careful! Please do not leave the marked hiking trails with bikes either.
After Furggen, you take the official hiking route towards the Saflischpass. As soon as you reach the top of the pass, you ride down to Rosswald. Here you have a connection to the aerial cableway if you do not wish to tackle the descent to Ried-Brig/Brig. From Brig, the cantonal cycle path takes you back via Bister/Zenhäusern to Grengiols.
