Arrive at Ski Lodge Engelberg, where a LeRipp representative will meet you and help you get settled in. We will meet at the bar in the evening to go through the weekend’s plans before dinner is served in the hotel’s restaurant. According to the word on the street the best restaurant in town.
Explore the Engelberg Valley. We start with a few warm-up runs in the bike park on the Titlis side in classic alpine terrain with a long and dreamy descent back to town. After lunch, we head over to Brunni, the sunny side, where we enjoy the views of the characteristic peaks of Hahnen and Spannort while pedaling up to Brunni Hütte. We grab a quick coffee on the sunny terrace before heading down the locally famous single-track Walenpfad all the way down to Wolfenschiessen. From here we take the train back to a well-deserved après bike at Ski Lodge.
Friday and Saturday
After a steady breakfast, bike check, and tuning we head out for our next day. One of the days will be spent tackling the legendary Surenenpass trail, taking you from 2,292m all the way down to the lake at 432m by the lake. A trail with breathtaking views and challenging terrain that will be a memory of a lifetime. On the second day, we normally head down the valley from Engelberg covering the areas around Lake Lucerne, Beckenreid, and Sarnen with the shuttle assist of a van. For the braves ones, each day is ended with a dip in a lake followed by a well-earned après bike in the Ski Lodge garden, topped off with a filling and delicious 3-course dinner.
Normally a relaxed morning at the lodge before returning back to the airport but depending on your departure time there is an opportunity to go for half a day riding before leaving Engelberg (subject to availability of the guide and additional cost).
*We tend to shift around the itinerary based on the weather, lift status, as well as the conditions
of the trails in order to create the best possible experience for you.
