Mountain roads and epic vistas that any cyclist would love to experience!
The postcard image of cycling crystalline lakes framed by snow-covered mountain peaks is accurate. Switzerland is located in the heart of the Alps, with its massive mountains dominating the country’s southern region and the Swiss Plateau, with its rolling hills and expansive lakes, is home to the country’s most populous cities.
With the Jura Mountains, located further north, it forms the border between Switzerland and France. There is plenty of scenery in Switzerland for nature lovers to feast their eyes on – and even more to experience.
These mountains and roads have been the battleground of many of the great duals in professional cycling history. One of our favourite routes, Emosson Dam, was even a stage finish of the 2016 Tour de France. Local cycling legends and heroes’ names can still be seen graffitied on the road to stay. The views of Mont Blanc are breathtaking all the way to the summit of this difficult route. The climb is included in our route at the bottom of this page.
