Here at Alpsmountainbike we call it ‘The Route of the Lords’ from Chamonix to Grindelwald also known as the Trans' Oberland, now exclusively available at Alpsmountainbike.

This tour deserves to become as classic a route as ‘the Haute Route’, Chamonix to Zermatt. The tour includes everything a postcard of Switzerland should contain… We plunge your front wheel straight into the northern Swiss German speaking side of the Swiss Alps where you will experience what Swiss mountain bike riding is all about… Here you will pass huge glacier adorned mountains glinting as if dripping in pearls and diamonds, crossing remote rolling landscapes manicured like golf course fairways snaked beautifully with unfrequented singletracks which meander past cows gently grazing, beautiful Germanic architectural styled chalets abundantly flower decorated, with wood piles stacked ‘just so’ with Swiss precision!
If you see another cyclist along these trails remember them as you won’t see many!
Everything you imagine of Switzerland is captured in the ‘Route of the Lords’.
Description
You will traverse one of the most famous mountain ranges in the Alps, the Bernese Alps.

Riding under the mythic and monstrous north face of the Diablerets glacier (3210m) and summits including the Wildstrubel (3245m), Sphinx (3495m), Jungfrau (4160m), Monch (4107m) and finally arriving at the Eiger (also known as the Ogre, 3970m) with its legendary 2800m towering expanse of black north face!

Join us for an epic tour in the heart of the Alps.
