The Hüttentour Surselva is a three-day mountainbike tour in the region between Chur, Flims and Vals. The ascents are primarily mastered under one‘s own power and lead over well rideable paths. The up hill to Vals is covered by post bus. The descents are mainly on singletrails that can be ridden smoothly, but experience in alpine mountainbiking is an advantage. On the Hüttentour, all luggage for three days is in the backpack, no luggage transport is possible. However, the selected huts have hotel standard.
Starting place: The Hüttentour Surselva starts in Flims. Ideally, you travel by car or public transport to Chur and get from there by post bus to Flims. Mountainbikes can be taken along without any problems, each post bus has a rear rack for up to five bikes.
E-Mountainbike: The Hüttentour Surselva is also easily doable with the e -mountainbike. However, experience in battery management is necessary to reach the stage destination with one charge. In the huts are sockets available to charge the battery. However, it is important to bring your own charger.
