What's Included

Multi-day Alps cycling tours

ARRIVAL, GEAR RENTAL & TRANSFER


LOCATION: ZURICH AIRPORT
DETAILS: …




WARM UP RIDE


LOCATION: VAL MUSTAIR (CH) & LIVIGNO (IT)
RIDE DISTANCE: 60 km, 25 mi
ELEVATION: 800m, 2500 ft
DETAILS: We use a one-of-a-kind tunnel built by the hydro-electric power plant company, look at the dam they built, and ride along lake Livigno, a ride often used by pro teams preparing at altitude for the big tours. After crossing the (tax free!) alpine town of Livigno, we ride up the Forcola di Livigno to give you a first taste of alpine climbing. Frequent stops along the way to fine-tune your gear, get coffee etc.




STELVIO. 🏆


LOCATION: VAL MUSTAIR (CH)
RIDE DISTANCE: 100 km, 70 mi
ELEVATION: 2000m, 6500 ft
DETAILS: Let’s be honest - today is why you’re here. Stelvio. Switchbacks after switchbacks. The G.O.A.T. and highest paved mountain pass in Europe. We leave in the early morning to ride down the valley of mustair, passing a UNESCO-heritage historic monastery, and cross into Italy at the bottom of the valley. After a short flat(ish) last warm up, the climb up Stelvio begins. Once you have earned your bucket list tick, we descend on the other side, and also add the Umbrail Pass to the collection with just a short saddle, so two passes for the effort of (almost) one.




SEE HOW YOU FEEL & WEATHER RESERVE


LOCATION: VAL MUSTAIR (CH)
RIDE DISTANCE: up to you!
ELEVATION: up to you!
DETAILS: After yesterday, let’s see how you feel! Maybe ride Stelvio from the other (Swiss) side? Go to the spa in Bormio (IT), or check out the historic monastery in Val Müstair and cross the border to eat Gelato in Italy? Up to you. We also keep this day as a reserve in case the weather did not allow for Stelvio on Day 3.

LAKE BRIENZ BLISS & WARM UP RIDE


LOCATION: Brienz, Switzerland
RIDE DISTANCE:
ELEVATION:
DETAILS: We ride through pristine Aare valley with its many bovine inhabitants, along Lake Brienz with its incredible color, sporting some of the most impressive mountain faces as a backdrop. This day is make sure you are comfortable and familiarised with your bike and the Swiss kind of riding.




GROSSE SCHEIDEGG


LOCATION: Brienz, Switzerland
RIDE DISTANCE:
ELEVATION:
DETAILS: We would like to call this a hidden gem, but it’s in plain sight. One of our founders’ favorite passes, full stop. The pass road is closed for car traffic, and it gets more spectacular after every turn. The descent goes to Grindelwald and its century-old alpine history with some of the world’s most famous mountain faces, before we return to Brienz along pristine lake Brienz




GRIMSEL & FURKA


LOCATION: Andermatt, Switzerland
RIDE DISTANCE:
ELEVATION:
DETAILS: Grimsel is a perfect mix of sights and effort in its own. Long, but never overly steep, the road straddles along gorges and waterfalls, sometimes car free and on short cobble stone sections - before we descend on Switzerland’s most fun descent to Gletsch. After this we climb Furka on the other side of the valley, with famous historic hotel Belvedere sitting in a hairpin close to the top. The ride down to Andermatt is more technical.

TOUR DE FRANCE GLORY HUNT

Guides-box.png
11-DAY WEST ALPS TRIP

From 7900 CHF p.p. in a group of two

For the avid climber, this challenging tour knocks off 5 monuments off your bucket list, with plenty of weather reserve days to stay flexible and readjust if need be to allow you the best possible experience for the timeframe you have available. The Galibier, Alpe d’Huez, Croix de Fer, Madelaine and Iséran are true Tour de France classics, each with their own legends, stories, and mystique. And some more passes along the way, some of them “for free”. The five monuments in this tour are vastly different in character. Each will leave a very different mark in your mind and legs, but none of them will ever be forgotten.
