Mountain biking

Explore the Arosa Lenzerheide region on two wheels!

The Arosa Lenzerheide region is home to a huge variety of mountain bike trails catering for riders of all abilities. From easy to tough, short to long, there is something for everyone here in the Swiss canton of Grisons. All in all the region has an incredible 4000 kilometres of signposted mountain bike trails plus several bikeparks and singletrack trails. It is no cooincidence that the canton of Grisons is known as the "Home of Trails" – many hiking paths are also open to bikers, though it is important to ride in a safe and responsible manner when using these shared routes. 

The best thing is that from spring onwards the Waldhotel Arosa is the perfect basecamp for bike enthusiasts. It is located just a short walk from the lifts and cable cars giving direct access to the mountains. And after an action-packed day on two wheels there is no better way to relax those tired muscles than with a visit to the spa & beauty area for a sizzling sauna or soothing massage!

Hörnli Trail reopens

Highlight back for summer 2019

The Hörnli Trail is 6.8 kilometres long and offers plenty of flow for riders as they make their way from the top to the bottom of the Hörnli-Express cable car. The Hörnli Trail is designed for riders of all abilities, which means it is also suitable for families. The trail is reserved for bikers only and closed to walkers and hikers for safety reasons. For families with children it is a good idea to visit the pump track at Ochsenbühl first to practise the basics before taking on the Hörnli Trail.

Pump track

Pump up the volume!

Next to the sports field in Ochsenbühl there is a pump track. What's a pump track? It's a course with up-and-down rollers and banked corners where riders must make their way around without pedalling. Instead, they must "pump" the bike up and down to gather and maintain momentum. The track can also be ridden using rollerskates, scooters, etc. (can be hired on site).

The best adventures on two wheels

Moonscape in the Swiss Alps

The recently opened trail in the Rothorn massif takes riders into a weird and wonderful landscape more like the Moon than the Alps. The trail forms part of the Älplisee ride, which brings bikers back to Arosa.

Sunrise ride to the top of the Weisshorn mountain

Getting up early is never pleasant, but there are some things which really are worth it. One of them is an early-morning bike ride to watch the sun rise from the top of the Weisshorn mountain. The adventure begins with a journey on the Arosa-Weisshorn cable car up to the top of the mountain shortly before dawn. Riders then enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Panoramarestaurant Weisshorngipfel with fantastic 360° views before whizzing down into the valley on two wheels.

  • Reservation: none required
  • Weather: only in good weather
  • Information: available from 16:00 the day before (+41 81 378 84 50)

There is no better way to cool off than with a quick dip
