At BikeVillage we offer you the very the best mountain bike holiday in the French Alps and, many say, the world.
BikeVillage has become something of a phenomenon over the years – 75% of our guests each year are returning. And we still keep on improving our vision of the perfect mountain bike holiday in the Alps each time.
Do you like the sound of the best Alpine singletrack you’ve ever ridden in your life? Why not add some cosy 4-star accommodation? Perhaps a soak in the hot-tub as you watch the evening sun set over the mountains, even a sauna? Why not add in delicious meals prepared by your incredible hosts? Finish the deal off with professional guiding and skills instruction from the very best in the business. Does it sound like the ultimate mountain biking holiday? If you’re all ready to book your trip then the 2023 booking form is right here.
Are you ready for the ultimate challenge? A mountain bike traverse of the Alps from North to South? Starting with your back wheel in the crystal waters of lake Annecy and finishing with your front wheel in the Mediterranean a lifetime later? What lies in between? Just an epic array of the best rideable summits and high passes to be found in the world of mountain biking. Imagine standing astride your bike on a 3000m alpine summit, knowing that your adventure will carry you to the sea, three vertical kilometres below you and 300 km of trail away. That is the AlpPacker. The route took us over 10 years to develop and it is not to be under-estimated. There is less luxury and the longest hike-a-bike sections can be over 3 hours long with some pushing and pedalling mixed in. The high mountain trails require both respect and humility – the Alps are always bigger than us!
