Big Cols Weeks

This year we are offering 2 different types of Big Cols Weeks, Local and Explore.

Join us on either of our Big Cols cycling weeks and tackle some of those epic climbs that you’re seen professionals race up.

Big Cols Local

This is a new week for our repertoire this year. There are so many amazing Cols around Morzine and the surrounding area that are world famous and have been conquerred by the greats in the cycling world. We know what its like to want to cycle as much and as far as possible while you are on holiday. So with this week you will be cycling 100+ km per day (5 days) so that you can really push yourself and see everything the alps has to offer. You will be cycling over some the famous Tour de France cols around here like Col de la Colombiere, Col de Joux Plane, Col de Ramaz… just to name a few.

Along the way we will either stop for a picnic in the mountains for lunch, or come back to the chalet and enjoy a delicious lunch after your ride. In the afternoon, you have the time to yourself, to relax, explore the area, swim in the lake or go test out the local brewery. Back at the chalet there will be fresh baking for you to enjoy in the afternoon and our chef will be cooking you up a feast for dinner to set you up right for the next day.
