With its huge trail network and impressive mountain scenery, the small, glitzy town of Davos in the Swiss canton of Graubünden is a true paradise for every single trail fan.
In this Collection, I show you my seven favourite Tours in Davos. They all include a high proportion of single trails and are technically and physically demanding. Although you can make use of the cable cars and lifts, you still gain a lot of altitude riding uphill. On some Tours, it’s also better to hike-a-bike or push your bike at times.
If you think you need to save up a fortune to be able to afford several nights in Davos, think again! On the contrary, there are many affordable accommodation options such as the youth hostel in Davos-Dorf, the ‘von SPRECHER HAUS’ on Lake Davos and the ‘RinerLodge’ campsite in Davos-Glaris. If, like me, you prefer to travel by campervan, you should book your pitch in advance as there is only one campground in Davos. Of course, you can also pitch your tent here or book one of the simple rooms in the lodge if camping is not your thing.
The cable cars are open from June to October, but sometimes the lifts are also open on weekends in May. At the bike hotels, a mountain railway ticket is included in the overnight price. If you stay at the campsite, you get a Davos mountain railway day ticket that includes your bike for an extra 15 Swiss Francs.
Both hikers and bikers are impressively tolerant of each other on the trails and they have shared fun in the Davos mountains. Out of consideration, you should only ride particularly popular trails, such as the trail from Äbirügg to Sertig or the Panorama Trail, in the early morning or late afternoon.
Davos is only a few hours' drive from the major cities of Zurich, Innsbruck, Milan, Stuttgart and Munich. Thanks to the excellent Swiss railway network, you can also reach the popular mountain biking area easily by train.
Whether you like summit ridges, alpine meadows, forest trails, uphill trails or hike-a-bike, there is something for everyone in Davos. The best thing is to see for yourself and explore the diverse Davos single trails on your next mountain bike trip.

Since the path from the Rinerhorn to the Sertig mountain valley is also very popular with hikers, you should start the tour very early. The best thing to do is to take one of the first gondolas in Davos-Glaris up to the Rinerhorn.Once at the top, you cycle to the Äbirügg barbecue area. The single trail descent to Sertig that starts here promises pure driving pleasure. On the rapid descent you will always be challenged by tricky root passages.
This dream tour is also popular with hikers, which is why you should start very early.With a single trail share of over 95 percent, this tour promises sheer driving pleasure. You start at the Weissfluhjoch. Even the first descent over the so-called rock path to the Strelapass is a unique experience. The single trail fireworks continue with a narrow path through the Schiawang. Attention, full concentration is required here, as it goes steeply downhill to the right.
