A wonderful tour with sublime views and varied options to extend your ride.

This route offers the ideal circular tour for beginners wishing to get their first taste of mountain biking. Some sections pose moderate technical challenges that allow you to test your skills. Start at Thun railway station and ride in the direction of Hünibach. This is an ideal warm-up stretch alongside the lake; two ascents and a lovely descent characterize this route. Once you reach the 'Blueme' at the top, we recommend taking a break to climb the impressive lookout tower. Lookout tower aside, sweeping views of the Bernese Alps, Lake Thun and far into the Central Plateau and Emmental valley are your almost constant companions on this trip. The 'Blueme' circular tour offers various options: depending on skill and preference, this ride can also be spiced up with some demanding singletrack action. Either way, the route is exceptionally scenic and packed with fantastic views.
