Cycling in Switzerland

Explore Switzerland on the Best Guided Cycling Tours

Though small in size, Switzerland figures largely in the minds of outdoor enthusiasts as a must-experience destination. With towering peaks, pristine lakes, four distinct languages, and a commitment to on-time transportation, Switzerland is at once relaxed and precise.

While the country’s origins date back to the Roman era, its true emergence as a nation began in the Middle Ages. The Swiss Confederation, formed in 1291, laid the groundwork for the modern Swiss state. Over the centuries, Switzerland navigated a delicate balance of neutrality, even as surrounding countries were engulfed in wars and conflicts. This neutrality allowed Switzerland to flourish economically and cultivate its unique cultural identity.

The country is divided into four distinct language regions: German, French, Italian, and Romansh. Each region boasts its own traditions, cuisine, and architecture that are best experienced by bicycle. Whether your tour begins in France, Germany, or Italy, you’ll delight in the opportunity to have your bicycle adventure include Switzerland.
