Tour of the Alps Weeks

For this week, we’ll provide you with great accommodation in Morzine as a base to start and end the week where we will cycle some of the local famous Tour de France cols,  and then during the week we will head off and explore the cols further afield. Whether this be in the Alp d’huez area, Annecy or even over to the Jura mountains in Switzerland, we have lots of options of various routes so you can keep tackling something new.  Get in touch with us and let us provide you with a custom made holiday, where we can plan what would work best for you, what you would like to achieve and give you an idea of great mulitday trips away.

A typical day will be waking up to a delicious breakfast that will be put on by our hosts, then we will hit the roads and tackle the mountains. After that we will either have a picnic in the mountains or come back to the chalet where you will have lunch laid out for you to refuel. The afternoon is your own time to explore the area, swim in the lakes or test out the local brewery before coming back to the chalet for a delicious two course meal with unlimited wine and beer for dinner. On the days away, we will organise hotel accommodation with breakfast in the morning and we will enjoy some of the local restaurants for lunch and dinner over our trip through the mountains.
