4 Lakes Bike Tour (Nr. 29)

The cable cars take you up to Blauherd. The stunning Four Lakes route (4-Seen-Tour) starts from here. After a brief descent, the route heads left to the first lake – Stellisee. Here you can see a stunning reflection of the Matterhorn in the lake.

If you now fancy a coffee, head up to Fluhalp and enjoy the view from the terrace of the surrounding mountains.

The route continues down to Grindjisee and Grünsee. In Grünsee, you can see a reflection of not only the Matterhorn, but other magnificent mountains as well.

The last lake you reach is Moosjisee. It is a very different colour from the other three lakes. Moosjisee is a typical glacier lake, and this gives it its cloudy appearance. From there, the route heads back to Sunnegga.

4 Lakes Bike Tour (Nr. 29)

Mit den Bergbahnen geht es hoch bis Blauherd. Von dort aus beginnt die schöne 4-Seen-Tour. Nach einer kurzen Abfahrt führt der Weg links weg zum ersten See – dem Stellisee. Hier spiegelt sich das Matterhorn wunderschön im See.

Wer jetzt schon Lust auf einen Kaffee hat, der fährt zur Fluhalp hoch und geniesst von der Terrasse aus die tolle Aussicht auf die umliegenden Berge.

Weiter geht es hinunter zum Grindjisee und zum Grünsee. Im Grünsee spiegelt sich für einmal nicht das Matterhorn, sondern andere wunderschöne Berge.

Zu guter Letzt kommt der Moosjisee an die Reihe. Der Mossjisee hebt sich vor allem farblich von den anderen drei Seen ab. Er ist ein typischer Gletschersee, der mit seinem milchigen Wasser definitiv auffällt. Vom Moosjisee führt der Weg zurück nach Sunnegga.

4 Lakes Bike Tour (Nr. 29)

Les téléphériques vous emmènent jusqu’à Blauherd. C’est là que commence le magnifique itinéraire des 4 lacs (4-Seen-Tour). Après une courte descente, le sentier bifurque sur la gauche en direction du premier lac: le Stellisee. C’est dans ce lac que se reflète le Cervin avec une incroyable splendeur.

Si vous avez déjà envie de boire un café, montez à Fluhalp où vous pourrez en déguster un sur la terrasse en profitant d’une superbe vue sur les montagnes environnantes.

L’itinéraire continue alors en descendant vers les lacs Grindjisee et Grünsee. Dans ce dernier, ce n’est pour une fois pas le Cervin qui se reflète, mais d’autres magnifiques montagnes.

Le lac Moosjisee est le dernier des quatre. Le lac Moosjisee se distingue surtout des trois autres lacs par sa couleur. Il s’agit d’un lac de glacier typique qui, par son eau laiteuse, ne passe pas inaperçu. Du Moosjisee, le chemin ramène à Sunnegga.
