Naturpark Pfyn-Finges - The Dala Kultur Bike is the perfect tour for beginners. The route offers a combination of technically easy trails along with various natural and cultural sites.

From Leukerbad, the trail climbs gently upwards through meadows and pastures and then descends through coniferous and deciduous forests to Inden. The path partly follows the route of the old Leuk-Leukerbad railway line and consists mainly of open paths without any technical obstacles. Take a look upwards and admire the imposing rock arena overlooking the route. After Inden, you pass by a restored lime kiln dating from the late Middle Ages before reaching the rock face of the Schattuflüe. Follow in the footsteps of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who reached Leukerbad in 1779 from Sierre on this historic path. After this passage, your field of vision gradually widens and the Rhone Valley reveals itself in all its splendour. The path takes you above the wine-growing village of Varen to the town of Leuk and then down to Susten railway station. (Leuk railway station).
