Go to the top of Alpe d’Huez, touch the monument to Henri Desgranges at the summit of the Galibier, climb Les Deux Alpes, Lautaret, and others! If you are experienced and passionate, then come climb where legends have passed !

A short but intense bike program in one of the most famous and scenic mountain areas of the French Alps. In this program we combined the most challenging ‘cols’ or summits. Our base ‘camp’ is the charming village of Le Bourg-d’Oisans. This attractive local capital of the Oisans mountain area offers a wide range of winter and summer sports and is an ideal point of departure for cyclists and ATB-riders. On arrival you get a detailed briefing upon the cycle possibilities, the course and organization of your holiday. In order to optimally enjoy this beautiful area, you overnight in a cosy B&B mountain chalet or a charming hotel looking out on to Alpe d’Huez. After the rides, the little town of Bourg d’Oissans has some stores, restaurants, and bars for winding down.
