Challenge Route Day 4: Saanen -> Interlaken

After a short but steep climb out of town and a very long descent into Zweisimmen, you will explore pastures and streams on densely packed gravel paths. We’ll be stopping to pet the cows and admire the towering family chalets. Take plenty of pictures: these traffic-free valleys are seldom seen by tourists.

You’ll spend the later part of the day riding the shores of Lake Thun before reaching Interlaken. Once there, we’ll leave our bikes behind and take a 45 minute cogwheel train ride 4,265 feet up to the alpine town of Wengen. There are no cars allowed in town. Indeed, to preserve the beautfy of the region, the whole area has been designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Tomorrow we’ll explore the hiking trails, but now it’s time to relax.
