From the cosmopolitan city of Basel to the idyllic town of Bellinzona you will cycle through hilly terrain, breathtaking natural beauty and diverse Swiss landscapes. Enjoy the breathtaking Swiss nature from the Jura and through Mitteland to the Alps. From there, you join streams of tourists in Luzern - the cultural and social centre of Central Switzerland. After passing Luzern, you will notice how the landscapes become more and more demanding and mountainous, eventually reaching the imposing Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne). Quickly however as you continue the climate changes to become milder and warmer, with the first chestnut trees and vineyards on the horizon.
