The Swiss part of the Rhone Route begins with a perspiring climb through Alpine pastures up to the Furkapass. This is followed by a downhill ride past the melting ice towers of the Rhone Glacier through the magnificent mountain scenery of the Valais. Flower-filled fields and the aroma of resin accompany you almost to Brig, the main town in the region. From there the main valley widens and EuroVelo 19 passes through the lively towns of Sierre und Sion with the Dents du Midi mountain providing an impressive backdrop. Beyond is the famous palm-lined promenades of Lac Léman with the picturesque Lavaux vineyards and cosmopolitan Genève.
