Challenge Route Day 3: Chexbres -> Saanen

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.

Our destination is the sleepy village of Saanen. Up for a bit of Alpine nightlife ? The small, but world-famous Gstaad is just a ten minute walk along the river Saane. 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.
