Divided into 20 stages, each approximately 45km long, the route can be completed by most cyclists in 10-14 days. Includes information on preparation, navigation, accommodation and amenities on route.

Seasons
Except for stage 1 in the high Swiss Alps, the route can be cycled between April and October. Stage 1 can only be cycled when Furkapass is snow free, usually mid-May to mid-October.
