Welcome to Bike Kingdom Arosa Lenzerheide
Bike Kingdom is not just a name; Bike Kingdom is a promise. The imposing mountain landscape in the Arosa Lenzerheide area has long since ceased to be an insider tip in biker circles. Since the mountain bike world cups and world championships, everyone knows that this is one of the largest and most versatile biking regions in Switzerland.
Thanks to a perfect infrastructure, consisting of a single trail network between Arosa Lenzerheide and Chur, bike park, pump tracks and much more, every biker can discover their personal favourite. Renowned bike events regularly take place in the region: Swiss Epic, Family Bike Vibes, testRIDE 2021.
Arosa bike trails
The biking area in Arosa, better known as Bear Mountains, combines almost endless single trails and flow trails, and thus connects high Alpine areas with gentler wooded sections. Whatever your preferred style, you will get your money’s worth. A digital trail map can be found here.
Anyone who has already explored the Bear Mountains can use the Urdenbahn cable car to quickly and conveniently get to other parts of the Bike Kingdom. Look forward to routes that will guarantee biking fun whatever your preferred style: from gentle to sporty, simple to difficult and of course routes for the whole family.
It’s no accident that Graubünden is also referred to as the Home of Trails. All hiking trails resemble bike trails and are therefore perfect for riding on. Naturally, that can only work with lots of mutual respect. The Arosa All inclusive Card, valid throughout Arosa, gives you a 30% reduction on the transport of bikes. Our certified bike guides would be happy to give you real insider tips on the many trails. The bike parks in the vicinity are just waiting for you to show your Whip, North-Shore and Gravity skills. And very ambitious bikers can try the enduro tours with a unique nature and single-trail experience. In collaboration with the Arosa Bikeschool, we would be happy to organise guided tours with local riders from the Arosa mountains for an unforgettable bike adventure.
Biking with the family
At last: the summer holidays have come round with plenty of time for action. Arosa is the perfect starting point for family bike tours.
Right beside the Hörnli-Express valley station, the Skill Center offers a suitable platform, especially for children, to prepare for the biking experiences in Arosa. A perfect infrastructure is available for bike beginners with four different practice trails as well as a moving belt. The Skill Center setup is similar to the training concept of the Arosa Bikeschool, which combines biking technique with playful elements thanks to its “Bären-Bikebande” (a group of bike-riding bears).
Our Hörnli Trail, the Arosa Flowtrail, is unique in the Alpine area. A length of 6.8 km and the topographical conditions are unique on the Hörnli and seem to be made for a flow trail that can be ridden by bikers of virtually all skill levels, and is also suitable for families. The mountain bike trail is closed to hikers and can only be used by bikers.
Incidentally, there is a small practice pump track around 200 metres from the Valsana Hotel Arosa. In addition to the Skill Center at the Hörnli-Express valley station, the pump track at Ochsenbühl also features a perfect play area for children. Pump tracks are designed for experienced bikers, but are all the more fun. And if anyone fancies a break, we highly recommend a trip to the Bear Sanctuary, where people of all ages can learn lots of interesting facts about animal welfare while relaxing before they get back in the saddle again.
Our cleverly developed, tailor-made packages make every biker’s heart beat faster.
At the Alpine Ladies Trail Camp, under the direction of Karen Eller, daring bike ladies can look forward to Alpine single trails with hair-pin bends, trails on woody ground with plenty of roots and technical sections.
Bike kings and queens can look forward to an adventurous time in the bike paradise of Arosa Lenzerheide with the Bike Kingdom Special. Relaxing hours in the spa, catering suitable for biking combined with the relaxed ambience at the Valsana Hotel.
Naturally it is your choice: Book a room with breakfast and discover the Bike Kingdom yourself or on a guided tour with our professionals from the Arosa Bike School. Whichever way you do it, you can look forward to an unforgettable bike adventure in the mountains around Arosa.
A whole day of biking? With an e-bike, even bikers who don't have the chance to get out regularly can look forward to a full day’s enjoyment. Age and level of fitness are no longer relevant. Uphill flow makes ascents easy. This results in a training effect that is ideal for regeneration and basic training. The Valsana has a selection of e-bikes available for hire (hard-tail) in the hotel (price: CHF 20 for ½ day, CHF 40 for a full day). Thanks to the dense network of charging stations, all routes are open to you. Free taster courses are offered by Destination Arosa.
