Alpine Rhine Cycle
The Grisons, or GraubŁnden as it is referred to by the Swiss, is considered by many to be Switzerland's most beautiful region with a multitude of lakes, valleys and snow capped mountain peaks. The Rhine river has its source in the Grisons, connecting its mountains to Lake Constance over 100km away. Travelling alongside the Rhine and Lake Constance, this diverse cycle adventure from Switzerland, passes through Liechtenstein and Austria before returning to Constance in Germany. The relaxed itinerary offers the flexibility to explore the gorges of the Grissons on foot, cycle to winegrowers villages to sample the local specialties, visit the Museum of Art in Liechtenstein, and climb up to a castle for a picture postcard view.
