How to combine cycling and hiking holiday into 1 weekend?

What if your partner doesn’t bike at all while you get withdrawal symptoms if removed from your bike for just a weekend? Well, if you are an early bird this can be easily solved in Oberwald, Switzerland.

DAY 1: Short hike at Grimselpass & Short ride to Furkapass

It should take you around 2 hours to drive to Grimselpass 2,165m from Zurich by car (of course, make sure the pass is open). Free parking. Up there, it is quite easy to find a hike of any distance.

We spent a few hours only hiking up to Triebtenseewli. This was an easy, short hike…

You can walk along a glacier. You can even return by road if you are short on time.

However, you can do any other hike in the area. Just have a look at the picture of the map I took up there and pick one.

The same day I went on a short bike ride up the Furkapass and back, right after the arrival to the hotel.
