Itinerary for unique Chamonix mountain bike & eMTB holiday in France
You will be met at Geneva airport by a LeRipp representative and driven to your chalet. Upon arrival you will have time to settle in and make sure you have everything for the first day of riding. In the evening there will be a welcome dinner where you will meet your guide who will briefly explain the itinerary for the week.
Hearty breakfast in the morning followed by a brief meeting to explain the day's agenda. Typically, the first day we start with some lift accessed riding in Le Tour or Les Houches to warm up and make sure that you are one with the bike. After a full day of riding, laughing and sweating, we will head back to the chalet for some afternoon snacks and relaxing time.
Day 2 & 3
Two full days of epic mountain biking where we will explore the best trails Chamonix has to offer. One of the days will be spent in one of the neighboring valleys, in Italy, where we will enjoy areas such as Pila and La Thuile in Aosta valley. We tend to shift around the itinerary based on the weather, lift status, as well as the conditions of the trails in order to create the best possible experience for you.
No plans day. Normally we recommend that you take this day to rest your body and explore one of the other awesome activities around Chamonix. If you have not yet visited Aiguille Di Midi, it is a must do while in Chamonix. If you can't stay off your bike, you can of course go riding by yourself and we are more than happy to point you in the right direction. In the afternoon there will a workshop with a bike mechanic who will be able to assist you with any small fixes as well as teach you useful tips on how to look after your bike.
Day 5 & 6
Another two full days of awesome mountain biking. This time we will explore some of the more unknown areas around Finnhaut and Martigny in Switzerland and perhaps try one of the more famous enduro trails from Les Saisies to Albertville. Again, the guides will decide on where to go based on lift status or road access in order to create the best possible experience.
Wind up the trip, pack your bags and head back to the airport with big smiles on your face.
