The 7 kilometer loop leads from Oetz north to Sautens and back. The asphalt and gravel roads are easy to drive. Even on hot summer days, a cool breeze always blows in the bank area of ​​the Ache, which is fed by numerous glaciers. In addition, rows of trees on the secluded riverside path provide shade. Anyone who has experienced the river once in spring during the snowmelt knows about its destructive power. In earlier years the raging Ache often flooded and devastated the valley. Today, numerous fortifications ensure the safety of local residents. On the tour, the chances are good that you will see kayakers and rafting boats on their lurching journey.
