Challenge Route Day 3: Chexbres -> Gstaad

Feeling adventurous ? If so, take the steep back roads to our first coffee stop in Chatel St. Denis, otherwise join the rest of us on the more direct route. There is a lot of flexibility on our itinerary if you choose to stray.

Once at our coffee spot, grab a slice of dense chocolate cake: we’ve got another 50 kilometers to work up an appetite. Lunch is in the medieval village of Gruyère. Take a tour of the castle or visit the cheese museum before getting back in the saddle to discover the magnificent valleys and giant chalets of the region beyond.

Gstaad’s car-free streets are perfect for admiring the surrounding Bernese alps. You’ll come to understand why a long list of celebrities, from Grace Kelly to Tina Turner have made Gstaad their summer home.
