Itinerary

Day 1 Warm up Day

  • Arrive Geneva International airport and take the transfer service to your accommodation. Build the bikes and maybe take a short shakedown ride before dinner.

Day 2 Mont Blanc Tunnel

  • Take a short transfer through the Mont Blanc Tunnel to Italy for the first climb of the day, the Petit St Bernard pass where some of the original ‘Italian Job’ was filmed. At the summit we cross back into France and descend to Bourg St Maurice and join the climb of the Cormet de Roseland. After the summit we descend to the last big climb of the day over the Col des Saisies before dropping down through Megeve and then gently winding our way back up to Chamonix where the Hot Tub is waiting.

Day 3 Col des Montets

  • Riding directly from the Chalet and over the leg loosening climb of the Col des Montets, we cross into Switzerland and onto the Col de Forclaz. We then have the option of an additional climb over Champex du Lac before joining the Grand St Bernard pass. At the summit we are back into Italy and descend into the Aosta Valley for the gentle climb up to Courmayeur. We will then transit by van back through the Mont Blanc Tunnel. Airport transfers to Geneva for the final flights of the evening.

Location

Chalet Annabelle has the best of both worlds, it is situated in a quiet residential area away from the main village road and valley highway, semi rural with amazing mountainous 360 degree views, although close to amenities with the local supermarket being just 2 minutes drive away.

The busy Chamonix town centre is just a short drive way either on the valley highway or quieter B road, where you’ll finds lot of bars, restaurants, shops and tourist activities. The village is just a short drive or walk which also has a great tourist information centre, and a selection of bars and places to eat.
