Is This Trip For Me?
An epic 6 night journey across the Swiss Alps over the best climbs in the country. Starting in the ski resort of Andermatt, the week starts with one of the world's best one day routes taking in the Furka, Nufenen & Gotthard Pass. We then head via the San Bernadino Pass & Maloja Pass to St Moritz before ending on a couple of wild climbs and ending on the highest paved pass in Switzerland, the Umbrail pass up to the Stelvio summit. Small groups, expert support and a route that will live long in the memory.
Ride the iconic Gotthard Pass: On the shortlist for worlds best climbs. Very little traffic, hairpins galore, a 5km cobbled section and incredible views. We ride this on day one.
Wild & Remote Climbs: The week takes in classic and wild climbs of Switzerland. The Nufenen, Albula & Fluela passes take us into remote sections when it is often just us and the road.
Finish on the Umbrail: The highest paved road in Switzerland, our last climb takes us over 2,500m. Just for fun, we then cross into Italy and ride the last few kms of the Stelvio pass to finish the week at 2,757m.

Lots of climbing but either shorter rides or an easier day mixed in. Challenging but suitable for most riders.
Switzerland Raid Cycling Holiday
One of the great weeks of cycling in the world. This 6 night trip starts with two nights in Andermatt and then moves each night east before ending on the Italian border on the Umbrail Pass. Our small groups are led by our expert road guides with a mechanic following in the support van. Most of the riding is up and down but when there are flat sections we ride together before doing the climbs are our own pace, regrouping at the top. Days average about 100km and just over 2,500m - suitable for club riders and anyone that loves climbing. We take on both the classics of the country (Furka Pass, San Gotthardo) and some stunning remote climbs (Nufenen Pass, Albula & more). Evenings are spent in some beautiful Alpine villages with social post ride time and great local food.
