Crystal-clear mountain lakes, gushing streams, majestic glaciers - the backdrop for mountain bikers between Engelberg and Melchsee-Frutt is world class. And the trails are also worth seeing. The four-lake tour combines magnificent scenery with grandiose flow experiences.

From Engelberg railway station, the starting point of the 4-lake bike tour "Express", the route takes you to the valley station of the Titlis Xpress and with it comfortably up to Trübsee. The short section of approx. 1 km passes Trübsee, the first lake of the tour, and the bike takes you along a wide path. The 400 metres in altitude difference from Trübsee to the Jochpass can be managed by chair lift. The Flow-fun starts from here, it goes over a beautifully arranged single trail, the Hells Bells Trail (1 meter path width) towards the Engstlensee. Need a short break? The crystal-clear glacier water offers a cool down. Once you have passed the lake, there is a steep gravel path up to Tannalp. On some narrow passages the bike has to be pushed. On a wide tarred road along the deep blue Tannalpsee and beautiful alpine meadows, you reach the Melchsee, the fourth lake of the tour. In Melchsee-Frutt there are various restaurants with sun terraces where you can enjoy the panorama and get refreshments for the way back. Return to Engstlensee along the same path. The chairlift takes you up to the Jochpass and the starting point of the trail highlight, the Jochpass Trail. The Jochpass Trail with lots of flow promises unlimited fun on 4.5 kilometres. On a total of 440 metres in altitude, curves, waves and jumps are lined up, which were designed in such a way that beginners and advanced riders alike can enjoy the trail with the same amount of fun. The Jochpass lift takes you back to the start and the next run. To the starting point of the tour, the railway station Engelberg, the trail leads along gravel paths and tarred roads past Untertrübsee.
