The Furkapass - Oberwald route is a relatively short tour, often combined with the Grimselpass on the same day. With a very panoramic scenery on the Rhône Valley and a good mix of fast singletracks and technical switchbacks, this tour is a great way to start the day before taking another bus/shuttle to the Grimselpass.
Be sure to stop on the Bidmer plateau and climb on your left to check the view of the Rhône Gletscher!
Public Transportation (bus) from Oberwald Bahnhof, check the schedule and prices on www.cff.ch
Season: From June to October
