BIKe itinerary

Welcome to Chamonix – Mont Blanc

We will meet you at Geneva airport at 11 am before taking you to your hotel in the centre of Chamonix. We take advantage of this first day to adjust your bikes, present the tour and explore the city. Chamonix is the world capital of mountaineering and is located close to many natural sites. The city allows access by cable car to the Aiguille du Midi (3842m) and by small train to the Mer de Glace in a few minutes.

CHAMONIX – MONT BLANC TO CHAMPEX

Shortly after our departure from Chamonix, surrounded by snowy summits, we take the Col des Montets which leads us to the Swiss border and the Col de la Forclaz. The descent to the Rhone valley and the town of Martigny with its hillside vineyards offers a unique view of Switzerland’s most famous wine region. The ascent of the Champex pass, the last one of the day, leads us to a postcard landscape. Located at 1500m altitude on the shores of the Champex lake, nestled between the peaks in the heart of the Valais Alps, the village of Champex-Lac welcomes us for the night.

Champex to Courmayeur 

After a few kilometers of descents, the Grand Saint Bernard pass (2473m), the 3rd highest road pass in Switzerland, makes its appearance. Initially named the Col du Mont-Joux, it was named Saint-Bernard in the XIth century in homage to Bernard de Menthon, a man of the church and founder of the Hospice du Grand Saint-Bernard, which provides a welcome and rescue service for travelers who are victims of robbery. After cutting the border between Switzerland and Italy, the road continues in the direction of Aosta and then Courmayeur. We spend the night in this city nestled at the foot of the Mont Blanc.

Courmayeur to Beaufort

The Petit Saint Bernard pass (2188m) which marks the border between Italy and France is the first ascent of the day, it also takes its name from Bernard de Menthon founder of the Hospice located at its summit.
The descent to Bourg Saint Maurice offers a panoramic view of the Isère valley before leading us to the ramps of the Cormet de Roselend pass (1968m). Mythical col of the Tour de France, its high altitude lake offers a unique alpine landscape.

BEAUFORT to CHAMONIX Mont bLanc

Famous for its cheese, the village of Beaufort located in the heart of Savoie is on the road to the Col des Saisies, the last pass of this cycling tour from where you can notably see the Mont Blanc. A favorable profile leads us to the ski resort of Megève, before climbing to Les Houches. Finally the town of Chamonix is on the horizon.
