The Essential Weekend

3 days - level 3/5 - PRICE: 799 €
Click here for the trip details and availability
The Mini Mountain Bike Safari is a shorter version of the Mountain Bike Safari.

Do you have a short amount of time? You want to ride the essentials of the Alps? We've got what you need...

You will ride Morzine in the Portes du Soleil, Chamonix and the Grand Massif, the best of the best !

A short stay need not mean less mountain biking, you will get your dose of singletracks, long climbs, epic downhills and breathtaking landscapes... Short but sweet !

The Mini Mountain Bike Safari is lift assited on all 3 days, so you do not need to be super fit! Just used to a moderately high level of exercise and familiar with mountain biking !

After the days riding you will return to a pretty alpine chalet Hotel "Les Airelles" in the mountain village of Les Carroz in the Grand Massif 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.

The Schedule: arrival on Friday morning

meet and greats" at Hotel les Airelles , in les Carroz at 9:30am on friday

DAY 1 (Friday): Departing from Morzine considered as the 'Mountain Bike Mecca' of Europe we will make a grand tour of the Portes du Soleil, the largest ski area in the world, with over 650km of slopes! We will cross the Swiss border to ride in the villages of Morgins, Champoussin and Crosets. We will pass underneath the 'Dents du Midi' mountain range surrounded by a fantastic environment of glaciers and high mountains peaks. A great day of mountain biking awaits you...

Ride distance: 52km
Uneven positive: 200m Uneven negative: 2100m
Physical difficulty: 2/5 Technical skills: 3/5



DAY 2 (Saturday): 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. With this exceptional landscape and the varying trails, it will satisfy the hungriest of mountain bike riders. Some time after the days ride spent visiting Chamonix to 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 of its presence.

Ride distance: 42km
Uneven positive: 300m Uneven negative: 1100m
Physical difficulty: 2/5 Technical skills: 3/5


DAY 3 (Sunday): Starting from Les Carroz, in the heart of the Grand Massif, this day 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 the Flaine ski resort at 2500m of altitude 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 a weekend... Followed by a beer of course!
