Cycling and Mountain Bike Holidays in the Alps

Marjolaine Daviau

Exemplary organization, dream trails and landscapes, enchanting accommodation, tasty meals… A super dynamic team, always attentive, focusing on safety and offering constant technical support. The guides know how to adapt to everyone’s level. I did the Haute route des 3 pays (countries) and I was not disappointed by the technical level, challenges as I like them but well balanced, alternating with panoramic roads and walks through small villages. I’m already dreaming of a next adventure with E-Alps!! A big thank you to the whole team!!

Paradise for mtb. Very professional riders, excellent food, and you feel the love and passion the owners and the staff have for their clients and mtb. Beautiful place, it is a must visit!. Erick and Jess are very attentive, friendly and you feel this positive energy as soon as you get into their place.

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.

great experience e-biking in Swiss alps! quite adventurous and challenging. very experienced and encouraging bike guides, and a lovely team that organizes lunches on the best Alp spots and dinners in the cosiest cabins. The guides are very adaptive to the average level of all family members. very recommendable as a bucket list trip!

I started cycling 2 years ago thanks to Rémi, he gave me confidence and allowed me to progress at my own pace. He knows the trails like the back of his hand and always finds the best compromise to combine pleasure and progress. I recommend 100% 🙂

I loved my bike, I loved Slovenia, and our guided tour. While reminded every day that Slovenia is a small country, it truly has a big heart. Our guide, Nejc, ensured our safety and showed us his “backyard” so that we could understand the food, and the architectural and sustainable nature of Slovenia. In addition, he took us on trails not well-traveled and to people’s businesses that welcomed us. I felt I got to know Slovenia. Nejc was an outstanding guide. Our group of four asked for e-biking and we got it. As older people, we were treated to rideable roads, two-track, and a few single-track trails. Each ride surprised us with either a cheese or wine tasting, a coffee at a mountain hut, or a village of importance. This was a great tour and I recommend working with Slovenia Cycling Holidays.

Best bike rides in the Alps

The Haute Route

  • A point-to-point journey from Chamonix, France, to Zermatt, Switzerland. It’s famed for its challenging climbs (made easier by e-bike), stunning scenery, and iconic mountain passes, including Col du Télégraphe and the Col du Galibier.

The Tour du Mont Blanc

  • This famous hiking route, also doable by bike, circumnavigates the majestic Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest peak. It traverses France, Italy, and Switzerland, offering a more relaxed pace and breathtaking panoramas of glaciers, valleys, and charming villages.

The Alps to the French Riviera

  • A ride that takes you from the heart of the Alps down to the glamorous French Riviera. You’ll cycle through picturesque Alpine villages, vineyards, and lavender fields, before you arrive at the sparkling Mediterranean coast.

More about cycling and mountain biking holidays in the Alps

  • Of course!

    The Alps are a popular destination for mountain biking and cycling holidays, with routes designed for all experience levels.  There are even iconic cycling races that take place in the Alps, like the Tour de France.

  • Packing for a cycling trip in the Alps requires preparation for variable weather conditions and the demands of riding in mountainous terrain.

    • Bike: Ensure your bike is in good working order before your trip. Consider a tune-up and pack spare parts like tubes, tire levers, a pump or CO2 inflators, and a multi-tool for basic repairs.
    • Biking clothes: Pack breathable jerseys, bib shorts or padded cycling shorts, a windproof jacket, arm and leg warmers for adjusting to temperature changes, and long-fingered gloves. Also, bring a properly fitted helmet

    Apart from this, standard rules apply: Bring moisture-wicking base layers, plenty of insulating gear, and some rain clothes. Each trip has its own demands, so make sure you check the “What do I need to bring?” section in the FAQ.

  • Training for your dream alpine cycling tour actually involves three elements:

    1. Building endurance: Gradually increase the distance of your rides, aiming for lengths similar to your planned Alpine stages. Climbs can get tough in the Alps, so find hilly terrain or use machines with simulated inclines. 
    2. Improving strength & power: Include targeted exercises for core, legs, and upper body to improve power output and stability on the bike. Also, integrate high-intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions to boost your power and ability to handle short, steep climbs.
    3. Train with specificity: The best way to train for biking – is biking! If possible, train with the same bike and gear you plan to use in the Alps. This helps you get accustomed to the weight, handling, and shifting.
  • The Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) can be biked, but it’s important to understand it’s not a traditional cycling route and requires some adjustments compared to a standard road bike path.

    The TMB was originally designed as a multi-day hiking route, and some sections might not be suitable for cycling, particularly traditional road bikes. You’ll encounter unpaved sections, switchbacks, and potentially even some hike-a-bike portions, especially on steeper climbs.

    Guided Tour du Mont Blanc bike tours usually circumvent these issues by offering alternative routes.

  • Of course, you can mountain bike the Haute Route. In fact, with an e-mountain bike, it’s more accessible than ever before!

    The growing popularity of e-MTBs has opened up the Haute Route to a wider range of riders. E-bikes can assist with climbs, allowing you to enjoy the scenery and focus on technical sections. However, E-MTBs are still heavier than traditional bikes, so fitness and technical skills are still important.
