Cycling Delights in Summer

Summer in the mountains of Gstaad welcomes cyclists with a true symphony of nature. The gentle murmur of a mountain stream accompanies them on their tours, while nature is in full bloom and enchants the senses with a beguiling fragrance. The once barren meadows now blossom in lush green, surrounded by majestic peaks and idyllic Alps, where cheerful cows graze leisurely. Here you can literally feel the mild summer wind blowing through the valleys and marvel at the bright blue mountain lakes glistening like sparkling jewels in the sun. Along the way, colourful mountain flowers delight the eye and fill the air with their sweet scent.

«The balance between sweating on the steep ascent and enjoying the rapid descent makes the sport special for me and particularly tempting in such a beautiful landscape with so many different valleys and passes as in our region.»
