Saas-Fee: Switzerland’s Well-Kept MTB Secret

Discover the Saas Valley and ride trails at thousands of meters above sea level.

Description

Although it doesn’t experience as much traffic as Verbier or Zermatt, the Saas Valley is considered one of Switzerland’s well-kept secrets. Just hop on a mountain bike, e-bike, or even join a guided tour, and you can easily explore the biker’s wonderland that is Saas Valley.

With 70 km of well-marked trails, this area will spoil you with a wide variety of routes whatever level of experience you may bring. For a seriously adrenaline-inducing route, ride down to Saas-Grund from the Hohsaas gondola top station, where trails begin at over 3,000 m above sea level!

Be sure to note that the cable cars in Saas-Fee do not allow the transport of bikes; however, nearby Saas-Grund and Saas-Almagell do offer mountain railways bike transport for a small fee.
