Swiss Transalp: Leissigen to Adelboden Map

Begin the day with a steep climb up the Leissigen Panorama Trail. At some points you’ll need to get off and carry your bike, which is an excellent opportunity to turn around and look at the glistening deep blue Lake Thun below! First, you’ll hit Aeschiried. Then, you'll continue south through the Kiental Valley to Frutigen. The last stretch after Frutigen is all vibrant green fields and small patches of woodland until you eventually cross the river Entschlige into Adelboden.
