Embark on a Cycling Symnphony: Conquer the Swiss Alps with Aska Velo!
Pedal through the enchanting Swiss Alps, conquering iconic passes, and immersing yourself in the beauty, culture, and luxury of Switzerland.
Aska Velo presents an exclusive journey through the heart of Switzerland, where the Alps meet adrenaline-pumping ascents and jaw-dropping scenery.
Imagine winding your way through the heart-stopping passes of Furka, Gotthard, Nufenen, and Grimsel. Each turn opens up to breathtaking views of towering peaks, picturesque landscapes, and nature in all its glory. The Swiss Alps are not just mountains; they're a symphony of stunning vistas and awe-inspiring moments.
Furkapass (1509mi a.s.l.), offers a unique blend of alpine beauty, historical significance with the Rhone Glacier, and a touch of cinematic history as seen in James Bond's "Goldfinger." Grimselpass, standing at 1345mi above sea level, provides cyclists with a thrilling high-altitude adventure surrounded by pristine alpine landscapes and serene mountain lakes. Gotthardpass (1309 a.s.l.) boasts an epic cycling adventure with its cobblestone-covered roads, offering a distinct and historic ambiance to the ride. Ascending through the Swiss Alps becomes not just a physical feat but a journey through cycling history on roads that have witnessed numerous accomplishments.
Nufenenpass, at an impressive 1540 mi above sea level, is hailed by Fabian Cancellara (former Swiss pro cyclist) as Switzerland's boss climb, known for its tough yet stunning beauty. Conquering Nufenenpass, the highest climb entirely within Swiss borders, is described as unlocking a significant achievement for any cyclist's bucket list, making it an absolute must-try for cycling enthusiasts seeking the real deal in Alps magic.
As we pedal through this Swiss wonderland, you'll explore beyond the passes. Solothurn, hailed as the most beautiful baroque city in Switzerland, is not just a pitstop; it's where our guide, Sina, calls home. Venture into the idyllic Emmenthal & Entlebuch regions. Besides its famous cheese, the region offer scenic rolling hills and charming villages, creating a picturesque backdrop for an unforgettable cycling adventure. We take you to the bilingual "Three Lakes Region" – a tapestry of German and French cultures. Neuchâtel, perched on the edge of a blue, clear lake, awaits your exploration. And yes, it's a vine region – get ready to savor exquisite wines amidst stunning landscapes.
While conquering steep passes might push your limits, this journey is not just about cycling; it's a deep dive into Swiss culture and history. Luxurious hotels, mouth-watering Swiss cuisine, and the discovery of great wines await you at every turn.
