The gently rolling hills in the countryside of Estavayer-le-Lac form an extremely pleasant backdrop to a biking excursion. Challenging single trails alternate with easier stretches to give you a rich variety of biking adventures and to make this ride through pristine natural surroundings particularly entertaining. The tour also has a lot to offer as far as culture is concerned. Sightseeing in the picturesque Old Town of Estavayer-le-Lac is a marvellous highlight of the tour. And you can snap great photos of the imposing castle that majestically presides over the city.
