Known for it’s picturesque landscapes and the famous Adelboden-Lenk ski area, Adelboden, nestled amongst the soaring peaks of the Bernese Oberland, is a nature lover’s dream. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, you can always make the most of the truly beautiful surroundings.

Visiting in the summer? Try out the numerous hiking and biking trails through forests, over mountain passes and along glittering rivers. More of a winter wanderer? Hike in the snow or try out some of the top class ski facilities.

Adelboden itself is the perfect location to unwind for a few days. Here, particular importance is attached to the connection between tradition and modernity. This is demonstrated, for example, by the lovingly restored 600-year-old village church with frescoes by Augusto Giacometti, the “Alte Taverne” cultural centre, Adelboden’s local heritage museum or a traditional woodcarver’s workshop.

And a stay at The Cambrian Hotel is the cherry on top of taking a trip here. Sitting at an elevation of 1,350 metres and offering 360 degree panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, the location is breath-taking. Add to this an award-winning spa and wellness centre and high-end dining, it’s the perfect place to soak in the serene mountain scenery and breathe the fresh alpine air.

The winner will receive two nights for two at the sophisticated Cambrian Hotel in Adelboden, with breakfast and use of the extensive spa facilities included.

BBC Get Inspired: How to get into cycling

How do I start?

Just hop on a bike and you’re good to go. British Cycling, Scottish Cycling, Welsh Cycling and Cycle NI have information about clubs and racing tracks, and the Breeze programme for women cyclists offers a range of safe and sociable cycle routes for all abilities. If you don’t have access to a bike there are hundreds of bike rental facilities across the UK.

What is cycling?

Road cycling, the most common form of cycling, is simply riding a bike outside for exercise, sport or to get from A to B. Track cycling adds a competitive element and sees riders race around a specialist track at high speeds.

Is it for me?

From young children on stabilisers, through to adults going for long countryside rides, cycling is for everyone. Sick of being stuck in traffic? Cycling to work is also one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine. There are also a number of cycling clubs around the UK, where coffee and cake stops are as important as the route you ride!
