Unreal trip. Beautiful views the whole way around the haute route. The guides and the logistic team made the whole experience all the more epic. Ace accommodation and food for the every day – just be prepared for the holiday blues when you get home.

Patrick Lachance (source: Google Reviews)

It was a great trip very well organized with varied trails and hotels exceeding our expectations. The guides and the technical team were perfect. A very nice way to visit Switzerland in its hinterland while having a very sustained physical and technical challenge.

(Translated by Google) The E-Alps company allows us to live an extraordinary experience for those who are lucky enough to be able to afford something other than mass tourism. Real professionals who take care of everything in a safe and well organized way. Special attention throughout our trip from Chamonix to Zermatt on e-bikes … the most beautiful way to see the majesty of the Alps without forgetting the comfort daily!!! A special mention to our guide Diego as well as his acolytes (Rémi, Hector and Karina) who made our stay a memorable trip. Thank you all Julie and Marc

A trip out of time, far from the worries of everyday life, an unforgettable week with valuable people. I’ve been waiting for a vacation like this for a long time. Serious guides who don’t take themselves seriously… 🙂 A course and breathtaking landscapes and a rehearsed organization… What happiness! Thank you to my participating friends but above all a big BRAVO to the whole e-Alps team. I would do it again tomorrow…!

Blandine Mourey (source: Google Reviews)

Five days spent on the Haute-Route Verbier-Zermatt, from the welcome to the return no false note, Adrià, Amandine and Diego knew how to guide us, coach us, put us in confidence, the logistic team at the top, the meals, the maintenance of the bikes… we were pampered. The itinerary, superb from start to finish, alternating single, flow, panoramas, just fun.
An experience that Blandine and I will repeat with pleasure.

Fred Fournier (source: Google Reviews)

Unique and incredible experience! It was the adventure of superlatives! Wonderful landscapes, incredible organization, top atmosphere! Professional and super nice guides who looked after us very well during the 7 days of Haute-Route! I would have liked the adventure to continue! Wow! Looking forward to the next round!

  • For this Haute Route guided e-MTB tour, you need to be in very good physical shape. You will need to be able to bike between four and six hours for 6 consecutive days, crossing up to 30 miles (50 km) each day. You should be an active person and exercise three days a week for at least 30 minutes. What is also necessary for this trip is that you have MTB experience and have some technical abilities (more on this can be found in the answer to the following question).

    If you’re looking for something that requires less experience and similar landscapes, check out this e-MTB tour in the Slovenian Alps.

    On the other hand, if you want to experience something more challenging, check out this Tour du Mont Blanc MTB adventure.

  • For this Haute Route e-MTB guided adventure, you need to have at least two years of mountain biking experience. You should be able to go up and down on gentle singletrack trails and over rocks and tree roots. Controlling your bike on steep, flowing singletrack trails shouldn’t be a problem for you. During this adventure, you will ride on slightly exposed trails from time to time. You should also be able to determine when to stop riding and walk through a difficult section.

    Though riding an e-bike will help you tremendously, riding will get difficult and require some technical abilities. Keep in mind that you will always have a guide by your side who will observe your technique, motivate you, and make the riding less strenuous if it gets too difficult for you. If at some point you won’t be able to finish a section for that day, there will also be an option to get transferred to your accommodation.

  • Your guides have carefully selected a superb assortment of hotels and private huts for this trip. Over the course of a week, the accommodations you’ll be staying at will mirror the diversity of incredible landscapes—though what links them all together is their premier comfort and coziness. Expect a mix of amenities, from cozy mountain huts to contemporary hotels, ensuring a well-rounded experience in both comfort and immersion in the stunning surroundings.

    All of them are snuggly nestled in the high mountains, and some of them even offer wonderful spa amenities or upscale restaurants & bars. This tour is much more than just a mountain biking trip through the Alps. By staying at hotels and huts like these, you’ll get to know the Alpine way of life, feel like the locals do, and try out delicious traditional food.

    To see day-by-day accommodations, check the itinerary.
