The new, ultimate mountain bike experience from Roland Stauder - the only one in Switzerland.

Biking in the Upper Valais

4700 ALTIMETERS, 127 km MTB emotions, 27'000'000'000 tons of ice

Driving the Stoneman Glaciara

Over 127 km and 4700 spectacular metres in altitude between glaciers, countless 4000m peaks and the fascinating mysticism of centuries-old mountain villages - you will only find this with us, at Stoneman Glaciara. Of course, even at Stoneman Glaciara you don't have to beat the stopwatch. Your own performance is the benchmark. If you conquer the course in one day, you can call the Stoneman trophy in gold your own. If you master the Stoneman in two or three daily stages, you have earned the trophy in silver or bronze.

Overnight stay in the Salina Maris

The Badehotel Salina Maris is located directly on the route of the Stoneman-Glaciara, at the starting point of the royal leg up to the Breithorn. It is easy to reach by car and train. The brine spa and massage service (pre-booking recommended) are an additional help for a successful completion of the Stoneman-Glaciara.
We also support you in other ways, e.g. with the organisation of the luggage transport (reservation at least 2 days in advance). Even better: Stay with us all the time and you can do without the luggage transport and the annoying packing and unpacking.

Route guidance

The Stoneman Glaciara route consists of two or three balanced stages: The king's ascent begins directly in front of the Salina Maris hotel door: from Mörel to the old military road, which in the Hockmatte climbs 1600m to the 2,451m high Breithorn. This is followed by the descent into the Binn valley, the treasure trove for rock crystals and over 200 other types of mineral. Then you continue along the Rhone towards Obergoms – along ancient, mystical villages, monuments rich in history and inviting cafés. Via the mountain village of Bellwald you reach Fiesch, from where it climbs again to the Arctic Ocean of the Great Aletsch Glacier, then to the challenging viewpoint of Moosfluh and finally back to the starting point at Breiten above Mörel.
