The Free Ride Safari is a complete week of 'alpine adventure' on two wheels.

The perfect mix of epic mountain biking trails, breathtaking scenery and authentic alpine exploration.

After the days riding you will return to your luxuous chalet in CHamonix/ Argentiere and taste the delights of savoyard cuisine, relax on a sunny balcony with a beer surrounded by mountains and countryside with the relaxing sound of a mountain stream to lull you to sleep, adding to the idyllic village location.

You will experience endless rides from high altitude cols to the valley floor... And ride the wonders to be had in Chamonix, Courmayeur, Megeve, La Clusaz, Grand Massif.

The Schedule: arrival Saturday

'Meet and great' by ourselves at Geneva airport and transfer at your Chalet Chamonix where you'll stay for the week.. Unpacking and preparation of bikes.

DAY 1 (Sunday): Riding in the legendary area of Chamonix under the 'Lord of the Alps', the Mont Blanc, is a dream destination for many mountain bikers. We will realize this dream by crossing the valley with the aid of the lift at Le Tour via Flegere, providing our descent into the valley of Vallorcine on a beautiful singletrack which slaloms under the larch trees.

Chamonixto absorb the historic alpine mountain ambiance and gaze up at the Mont Blanc as you meander through the streets or sit and drink a well deserved beer, you can't help but be in awe.

DAY 2 (Monday): Starting from Les Carroz, in the heart of the Grand Massif, day one will offer you a fantastic ride between the valleys of the Giffre and Arve rivers, between green mountain pastures and grey rock slabs. We will reach the top of Flaine ski resort at 2500m, with the use of a gondala lift. From the top of Flaine the views are spectacular of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains, where on a clear day it is possible to see 200km south over the Alps. The downhill descent of 1500m and 12km ride back to the chalet is just the perfect way to end the first day... Followed by a beer of course!

DAY 3 (Tuesday): Departing from the exclusive French ski resort village of Megeve we will ride the area known as the 'Green Diamond', nestled between the spectacular scenery of the Mont Blanc and Aravis mountain ranges. Little known and uncrowed, this spot is a real jewel !

DAY 4 (Wednesday): La Clusaz... presents us with all her splendour! 70% of technical trails, crazy downhills, seductive singletracks crossing herds of cows with their jingling bells, and slaloming trails through the woods.

Starting from La Clusaz village, we warm up gently with an easy climb to Lac des Confins, we will ride 800m above the valleys of La Clusaz and the Grand Bornand on the top of Danay a small flat summit splitting the valleys. The first epic technical singletrack descent will improve your skills and test your nerves... to tackle the rest of the day! The crossing of the plateau of Beauregard is 'the cherry on top of the icing on the cake!'

The last days ride will be finished with the unforgetable downhill of La Patton. Hang onto your helmet and check your brakes, what is coming is steep... Steps, tight turns, rocks, roots... in fact, pretty much everything is on the menu for this final descent !! (escape route possible!!!)

The descent back to Courmayer is just fantastic , with about 25 tight corners! we have enough time we will ride in the Val Veni to enjoy the lago del Miagio!

Uneven positive: 600m Uneven negative: 1500m
Physical difficulty: 3/5 Technical skills: 4/5



DAY 6 (Friday): Departing from Verbier in Switzerland we are going to use the lifts to ride between La Tsoumaz, Siviers and back to Verbier on alpine singletracks! The view on the Mont Blanc and Combins range from top of Vierbier is Breathtaking ! And you will also experiment what " riding on a sweet swiss singletrack " means :-) . A great day of mountain biking awaits you...



Return to Chamonix, dismantle and pack bikes ready for departure the following day. Yes I think a well earned cold beer or two (or more...) is a definite!
