Flurina Held, Chef de Reception, Congress Hotel Seepark recommends:
From your starting point in Thun, ride along the northern shores of Lakes Thun and Brienz to Brienz. Carry on to Brienzwiler, from where you will cross the Brünig Pass into canton Obwalden. At Giswil, follow the directions for the Glaubenbüelen Pass/Panoramastrasse which leads to Schüpfheim in the Entlebuch region. This scenic pass road provides a unique motorbiking experience with several exciting bends. At Schüpfheim, carry on in the direction of Langnau im Emmental. Stop off for a well-deserved break in Trubschachen and visit the Kambly Experience (biscuit factory with retail store). After an undulating start to your tour, the second half through the beautiful Emmental valley is characterised by sweeping bends interspersed with straight stretches. The journey continues in the direction of Burgdorf via Ramsei ¬- Sumiswald to Affoltern im Emmental, where the Emmental exhibition dairy is well worth a visit. The adjacent restaurant offers an array of tasty regional delicacies - the meringues come highly recommended! Ride on via Oberburg through the Krauchttal valley (long, straight stretches) to Worb. After crossing the River Aare, the route takes you through the Gantrisch Nature Park with its expanses of forest and idyllic villages interrupted by gorges, some of them deep, to Belp - Toffen - Riggisberg - Wattenwil - Burgistein and back to your starting point in Thun.

Highlights:
- The winding Panoramastrasse pass road
- Kambly Experience (biscuit factory)
- Emmental exhibition dairy with restaurant
- Gantrisch Nature Park
