The program

Chamonix, France

Day 0: Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

ARRIVAL IN CHAMONIX

Are you travelling from afar to get to France? If so, we strongly suggest that you arrive a few days early, to avoid any potential problems due to unforeseen travel circumstances, and to give yourself some time to recover before the e-bike Alpine adventure begins.

The extra time will also allow you to make the most of the magical place that is Chamonix!




Day 1: Chamonix - Champex-Lac

RIDE AT THE FOOT OF THE MONT BLANC

We’re off for the adventure of a lifetime!

The first day takes place on playful single trails that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The views of the Mont Blanc are just exceptional, as are the UNESCO registered vineyards that we’ll cross.

We’ll end the day in the heart of the Swiss Alps, in a traditional renovated barn, ready to enjoy some delicious home cooking. What a great day!

Day 2: Champex-Lac - Nendaz

WELCOME TO VERBIER, THE MECCA OF E-MOUNTAIN BIKING

A superb path over a carpet of pine needles will warm us up in the morning. Next, we’ll head towards Verbier, the mecca of e-mountain biking. While we’re there, why not make the most of some of the best trails? A mountain trail will lead us to our chalet in the middle of a forest of ancient pine trees. Enjoy the superb view on the terrace, but don’t worry, it won’t be the last!

Day 3: Nendaz - Val D’Hérens

RIDE ON A SUPERBE ALPINE RIDGE

The day begins with an impressive ride along an ancient irrigation canal (‘bise’) – watch your balance!

We’ll follow up with two fantastic descents: on a beautiful alpine ridge and a never-ending singletrack trail passing through a carpet of soft pine needles to give us the right amount of adrenaline before arriving at our hotel. An architectural gem, our hotel has the ideal traditional living space – perfect for sitting and looking back on our incredible day together.

Day 4: Val D’Hérens - Val d’Anniviers

AN ALPINE PASS AT 2,900 METRES OF ALTITUDE!

This morning don’t forget to have a hearty breakfast. The first ascent will bring us to a pass at 2,900 metres. Who will be able to do the whole climb on the e-bike? The well-earned descent will give us views over an Alpine paradise, including the surrounding 4,000m-high peaks.

The second ascent of the day will bring us to a hidden gem of the Swiss Alps, the Weisshorn Hotel, offering unique panoramic views from the terrace, the best place to relax after the day’s ride.

A SPA EVENING AT AN ALTITUDE OF 2000M

Warm up those brake pads: day five begins with a fun descent (1,800 metres), which is bound to get you smiling.

The day follows with a series of sublime flowy trails. A final ascent will bring us to a private Alpine hut at 2,000m. What could be better than sitting in a hot tub, drinking a cold beer and taking in the views of the 4,000m peaks in front of us?

We promise this isn’t a dream!

We did it. Congratulations!

We’ll end the e-bike adventure in a wonderful spa hotel in Zermatt, facing one of the most beautiful peaks in the Alps. Take the time to relax your muscles and reminisce about the past six incredible days.

Day 7: Zermatt

ONE LAST RIDE IN ZERMATT?

You’ve got two options this morning: make the most of one last ride facing the Matterhorn, or relax with a coffee on a terrace? If your legs are up for it, we recommend the first option. Incredible landscapes, mythical trails and views of the Matterhorn from every angle will allow you to end the trip on a high note.

It’s already time to go home, with a smile on our faces and the memories of an incredible alpine adventure in our minds. Next time, why not try the UNESCO Haute Route?
