Camping Cul
Madinas
CH-7530 Zernez

Properties

The first day on our packed bikes on the often difficult Swiss bike trails through the woods along the river. Several climbs, some of them steep on the gravel paths. The descents are fast and a bit frightening due to loose stony surface. In the villages often cobble stones and/or tarmac. In the town of Zernez we cycled in heavy traffic towards the camp site at the riverside.

Remarks

The first real stage with our luggage on a very beautiful route through big woods along the river Inn, often with magnificent view to the high mountains.
