San Bernardino Pass–Bellinzona/San Bernardino Pass–Thusis

Bike route 6, SwissMobile

A bike trail in the footsteps of muleteers. Regardless whether you’re heading north or south, an exciting discovery by bike awaits you.

The Mesolcina Valley, the San Bernardino Pass and the Hinterrhein Valley are much more than merely a way across the Alps. Once you’ve crossed the San Bernardino Pass (change in Hinterrhein, Tunnel Nordportal or S. Bernardino, Posta) by Postbus, you are spoilt for choice as to whether to continue to the north or to the south. Heading south, you drop 2,000 vertical metres with just a few turns of the pedals. The mild southern atmosphere beckons, the asphalt simmers, and your wheels glow. Bellinzona – your destination – is in sight. To the north, you follow in the footsteps of muleteers through the villages of Hinterrhein and Nufenen to Splügen. Then on via Sufers through the Roffla Gorge to the spa village of Andeer. The last highlight on this tour to Thusis is the Viamala Gorge, which follows just after Zillis.
