In the summer, the most popular activities are hiking and cycling. You can explore over 400 km of walking trails, passing through villages and over mountain peaks.

For the cycling tours in the Alps, you should be very fit, because the roads mostly either head up or descend, even in the valleys. You might find the heat at this altitude pretty challenging, so bring the water with you.
