If you’d like to skip the hassle of bringing your own bike, your guide offers bike rentals. You can add that now to your booking.

E-bike rentals aren’t included in the price of this trip, but you can rent it for an additional fee and avoid having to bring it to the starting point!

If you’re renting a bike with your guides, they need to know which size of the frame you need. Let us know down below what’s your height as well as the height of other people you’re booking for.

You want some extra time to sip coffee while taking in the views of the Alpine peaks? You can prolong your holidays and add an extra day at the luxurious Verbier MTB chalet, where your trip starts and finishes! If you don’t check any boxes, we’ll assume you’re happy with the itinerary as it is.

One week of riding is not enough for you? No problem, you can take an extra day of guided mountain biking around Verbier, the premier MTB destination in Switzerland, for an additional fee of $105. This includes Verbier lift pass or shuttle service.

During your guided MTB trip in the Mont Blanc, you can share a room with another rider (whenever possible) or reserve a single room for an additional fee.

    • For these Tour du Mont Blanc MTB guided adventures, you need to be in excellent physical shape. This is a challenging journey for adventurous mountain bikers, capable of handling their mountain bike on steep technical climbs and descents on singletrack. Riding on the roads will be reduced to a minimum so, you will mostly ride in the dirt. You should be able to ride for hours without stopping and handle 6-hour days, 6 days in a row. Keep in mind that there will always be a guide by your side monitoring your technique and making sure everybody can handle the rides while having a great time. There will also be plenty of opportunities to take breaks in beautiful locations.

    • You should have previous mountain biking experience to participate in these Tour du Mont Blanc MTB trips. Experience of riding through mid-level mountains is necessary, but you needn’t necessarily have experience of riding in alpine terrain. You will be riding for up to 50 km (30 miles) a day with total elevation gains of up to 1,600 m/5,250 ft (ascents will be reduced to a minimum during the Enduro version of the tour), while carrying a backpack weighing between 6 and 10 kg (13-22 lbs).

      Some of the skills needed for the tour include riding with exposure, controlling your bike on moderate steep singletracks, and descents and climbs with some loose rocks and roots, handling small unexpected steps, rock gardens, and occasional little jumps. You should be able to determine when to walk, due to the terrain being too difficult or dangerous. Your guide will monitor your technique, take care of the logistics and help you overcome any obstacles.

    • Here’s what you’ll need:

        • Comfortable riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture wicking or synthetic material

    • It is required that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance on and off the trails. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.

      Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans.

      We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to.

      If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!
