Switzerland is often associated with alpine valleys and big mountains, but you do not always have to climb high to find pearls.

La Berra is a mid-altitude resort located just above the small town of La Rochein, in the Gruyere region. This region is well known for its typical cheese, Gruyère and Vacherin. But she will also now be recognized for his first bike park. The Berra Bike Park went out of the ground this summer and offers two tracks, one blue and one red. Each one is loaded with jumps, flow and steep. The red track has more technical jumps, while the blue gives more open and fast sections with some playful gaps and rollers.

The region is one of the quietest regions of Switzerland and every time we go there an impression of fullness takes over when you ride in the middle of cows and pastures. Every stop is perfect for relaxing and strolling before plunging into the beautiful flow of the Berra Bike Park. But the area also hides magnificent forests, filled with moss and loam.

Dark, steep & loamy. When you enter in the woods things are little bit less quiet.

The Berra Bike Park has taken five years to come out development (yes things are slowly going in Switzerland). It has been created and maintained by a team of passionate people who take care of the trails each day. Every week the bike park is new and that's why we can say that the Berra Bike Park has some of the most beautiful berms in Switzerland. Just open the brake, lay down and push is the things to do here.

The Berra Bike Park offers some of Switzerland's finest berms. Cheers to the local crew who keep them alive almost every weeks.

The Berra Bike Park is open from mid-June to the end of October and as summer is becoming longer in Switzerland in recent years, the turns of the Bike Park will suffer a little more this summer.

Lac de la Gruyère is located ten minutes from the bike park by cars. It's the perfect place to cool off and grill things with a beer in hand while enjoying the sunset. And if the weather is closer to winter than the Indian summer, enjoy warming up around a typical fondue. This dish was invented in this region during the Swiss civil war so you will not be able to eat anything better here.

Building berms with view should be mandatory.

If you come one time in La Berra, said "Adieu" to the friendly staff and don't hesitate to ask them tips for camping, eating or whatever you need. Those people are truly passionate about biking and love their region so they will be more than happy to help you.

You could find all the information about the Berra Bike Park on their website and if you need to rent a bike or fix a mechanical issue get in touch with Local Bikeshop , they are located just under the gondola.

Make sure to follow the bike park on Facebook and Instagram as they often publish news, information and content about the bike park on their socials media platform.

"Cheers to all the staff from La Berra for the good days we spent in the Bikepark, see you soon!"

Depending on the season and the weather, you might need to check which one is still open. In late fall I would recommend Chur (pretty low in the valley which means longer opening times) and Wallis/Valais that offers some smaller uplifts but these would be out of the bikeparks, i.e. mostly singletrails.

 If you're looking for big jump, go for Chaumont in Neuchatel. Those locals are crazy. But it could be, that they're building something at the moment, so no full trail from top to bottom.
