Cycling tours on eight alpine passes


Andermatt is situated on the high plateau of the Ursern Valley, surrounded by mountain peaks and eight Alpine passes. That makes our destination attractive for road cycling: With a racing cycle, you can climb passes and explore the valley.

Alpine passes.Cycling classics

The curve-filled pass roads and racing cycle routes make the region the ideal starting point for cycling tours – whether the ultimate challenge with three passes on one day or a classic that is also regularly on the Tour de Suisse schedule.

Eight passes.Numerous possibilities

The eight Alpine passes surrounding the Ursern Valley can all be toured with a racing cycle. The passes are not only an athletic challenge – they also cross cantonal, linguistic and cultural boundaries.
