Cycling

Our rides are carefully researched and designed not only to showcase the beautiful French Savoyard scenery, but also to cater to your group’s cycling goals. And what would a cycle tour to the Alps be without some classic Tour de France climbs. There will be the opportunity to stand proudly atop fabled cols such as the col de la Colombière, the col des Aravis or the col de Joux Plane - all located nearby.

You will spend 7 nights / 8 days in a magnificent luxury mountain chalet that is situated in Argentiere, at the top of the Chamonix Valley. This spacious chalet boasts amazing panoramic views of the famous Mont Blanc Massif and is equipped with an extensive range of facilities, such as our dedicated massage and wellness room.

As lovers of great food, we provide a world class chef to join you in the chalet to ensure your dining experiences rival the daytime riding highlights.
