Cycling in Chienes

Ernest Hemingway knew it well: “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.” Nowhere else can this statement be more fitting than here in Chienes-Kiens, right in the midst of the “Green Valley” an ideal starting point for discovery on two wheels.

The flat valley floor provides the perfect invitation to long-distance tours. For example, on the Sun Trail, which starts right in front of the Chienes town hall and continues on a 50 km (31 mile) loop via the sunny village of Terento-Terenten past many worthwhile spots, such as the Laghetto d’Issengo-Issinger Weiher pond.

Riding through the landscape, taking time for yourself, but stopping again and again to enjoy the view of steep peaks, green meadows, and fields gently swaying in the wind – in Chienes, bicycling and enjoying the outdoors are inseparable.
