The Engstligen Loop is a varied but strenuous route around Adelboden. A magnificent and rewarding panorama accompanies us on almost the entire route. The vertical meters accumulate in constant ups and downs. Although the concentration decreases, the single trails do not decrease in their level of difficulty. However, you can cancel the tour at any time and return to the starting point.

Die Tour ist echt der wahnsinn, abwechslungsreich und ziemlich anstrengend. Ich habe mit Garmin die ganze Route getrackt und das Schlussergebnis stimmt sogar nicht mit euch überrein. Es sind mehr als 2600 Höhenmeter und die Biker/in die diese Tour in 6,5 Stunden fährt würde ich gerne kennenlernen.
