The Bear Bike Treasure Hunt offers all age groups an exciting biking experience in Arosa. The three different routes with varying levels of difficulty each start and end at the Skill Center at the Hörnli valley station. The aim of the Bear Bike Treasure Hunt is to find the thalers on the boards placed along the route. Whoever has found all the thalers will receive the solution word and may pick up a goodie at the Bike School in the Skill Center Arosa.

After the start at the Skill Center, the route leads directly to the Hörnli, where you can bike down the Hörnli Trail. After that, the route continues to the Pumptrack behind the Sports and Congress Center Arosa. After that you take the cable car Arosa-Weisshorn to the Arosa Bear Sanctuary and further up to the Weisshorn. Then you bike back down via Scheidegg and return to the finish at the Skill Center at the valley station of the Hörnli-Express via the toboggan run and the Alte Kirchliweg.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to Arosa Bear Sanctuary is worthwhile for the whole family!
