YOUR PROGRAM

DAY 0 : ARRIVAL IN VERBIER, THE WORLD MECCA OF E-BIKE

Arrive early in Verbier and prepare for your trip with serenity: take some time to warm up your legs and train your balance on incredible singletrails terrain while enjoying a breathtaking view of the 4’000 of the Alps.

DAY 1: PERFECT UPHILL FLOW AND INCREDIBLE ALPINE RIDGE

The adventure begins smoothly with an uphill ride….in a gondola 🙂 to the heights of Verbier. A bit of pedaling and you are already enjoying more than 1’000 meters of flow downhill through traditional mountain villages. What a start! 

A good ride in “uphill flow” mode will bring us to the edge of a spectacular alpine ridge . We can enjoy the view on the Mont-Blanc massif in the distance while we enter the Pays du St-Bernard ; the place of origin of the mythical Swiss rescue dog. A nice trail takes us back to the valley before going up to a hut in the middle of the mountains with, as a little luxury in the evening, a Swedish bath on the terrace to sip a beer. A first 5* day…and it’s just beginning!

DAY 2: TRAILS PICO BELLO AND LA DOLCE VITA

We start the day with a ride towards the Col du St-Bernard and its hospice which marks the border between Switzerland and Italy. First espresso, bacon and chestnuts with local honey. Yummy. Benvenuti in Italia :), the country of the dolce vita and….5 stars trails. You will be spoilt for choice ! And the treat continues in the evening at the Piccolo Paradiso, a typical B&B of Valle d’Aosta surrounded by a splendid alpine panorama. A place that lives up to its name to end a dream day :).

DAY 3: FLOW, FLOW, FLOW. UPHILL, DOWNHILL BUT ONLY FLOW!

A breakfast on the panoramic terrace with a view of the Aosta Valley and let’s get started with the…FLOW. It begins with a roller coaster ride in a very playful area. We pedal a little to arrive until the top of a superb peak. Que Bellissimo ! Some playful trails to get to a typical italian village for an espresso and focaccia break. A short shuttle and it’s off again for a perfect “flow uphill” to a ridge facing…Mont Blanc on it’s Italian side. Wahouuu. Maaama mia! And, here we go again for the last downhill to La Thuile, home of Enduro World Series. Tonight it’s polenta, Petit Rouge and Tiramisu de la casa. Que buono :). 

Splendid day number 3 !

DAY 4: ADMIRE THE ITALIAN SIDE OF MONT BLANC AND SLEEP AT THE SHEEPFOLD

After a copious breakfast buffet, we go to discover the natural trails of the bike park of La Thuile. A delight. A wild valley takes us to a pass at 2’600 meters facing the south face of Mont Blanc. A wild beauty. We transit to a narrow trail: time for you to show your technical skills on a bike (don’t worry, you will be fine!). The reward: the spectacular Val Veny, a real highlight of the tour of Mont Blanc. You put on your bell and share the trails with hikers from all over the world. Smile, you will be photographed! A very playful descent from the Seigne pass and we arrive at our 5*gastronomic sheepfold for a night in the heart of the Beaufortain massif. Bienvenue en France!

DAY 5: A DAY IN THE COMPANY OF... MONT BLANC !

After lunch in a peaceful haven, we ride to the magnificent lake of Roseland before the wild Beaufortin. You are going to be all alone with a breathtaking view of the Mont-Blanc. An alpine descent, a second player and the infinite trail of the bikepark of Les Houches and here we are already going up the river leading to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc. Sitting on a terrace, sipping a fresh drink, remembering this fabulous trip with nostalgia or….extend and complete this “Grand tour du Mont Blanc” in Verbier. Do you already feel the dilemma settling in?
