Thermal bathing in Leukerbad has a long tradition, which goes from retreat until the actual thermal bathing experience. The thermal water of Leukerbad is something very special. Sport and wellness lovers like hot springs, as the natural warmth relaxes thoughts and muscles and improves blood circulation.
The cyclists love Leukerbad in particular for the last leg from Varen to Leukerbad via the old Varen’s route, with the goal of a relaxing thermal bath. On the route from Varen to Leukerbad, 650 meters of altitude difference, 12 km long route is ready to overcome. Leukerbad doesn’t only make hearts of bicycle racers beat faster, but also offers mountain bikers and hikers varied trails in an alpine mountain environment. The two “mountains of adventure”, the lovely Torrent, the mountain in the heart of Valais, and the wild Gemmi, with its historic pass between Valais and Bernese Oberland, offers over 200 km of hiking trails and 20 bike routes, including the popular Torrenttrail.
