We are excited to announce our 2018 Alps Tour dates

These 7 day, 7 night camps (6 days of riding) are intended for advanced intermediate and above riders and go from Saturday to Saturday. (Please note check in and checkout times before booking airfare). 

New for 2018:

Adjoining luxury chalets in the town of chamonix!

New for 2018, we'll be located near downtown Chamonix, France instead of in the surrounding mountains as in the past. This will allow riders to head into town anytime - a great addition to the experience. It will also allow non-riders to join their riding friends and have access to transportation all over the valley and beyond to hike, shop or eat anytime. (There is a bus and train station only 100 meters from the house - passes Included in trip price). We now have two adjoining chalets with 8 total bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 2 saunas, 2 outdoor hot tubs two sets of washers and dryers and two garages with heated floors for bike storage. (think pre-ride bike check in your slippers).

  • Airport Service upon arrival and departure
  • Daily Ride Guiding in French, Swiss, and Italian Alps
  • Breakfast every day and group dinner (wine included) five nights of each trip

TOUR 1: Aug 4-11Adult or Family Option

This week is unique in that we are making one Chalet available to our adult clientele, and the other Chalet will is being offered to families. This is a great chance to come and ride in the Alps with your young ones. The chalet reserved for adults is the same as in all other trips, and is completely separated from the Family Chalet and has it's own hot tub outside. We’ll have two guides and two vans to allow us to split into groups each day allowing for us to split according to ability and to keep families together should they desire that. There are lots of non-riding activities just a short trip away by bus, train or a 15 minute walk. (We are 100 yards from the bus and train stop). Please contact Simon before booking if you are unsure about your ability or readiness for this trip. We want to be sure our offering is right for you. Trip includes airport pickup and drop off, 6 days of guided riding, and 7 nights lodging. We offer a full pre-ride breakfast each day, and dinner will be served nightly other than our two 'nights on the town'. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE TRIP FAQ'S AND TRAVEL GUIDE below.

No problem!  We can send you a special payment form for that.

What if I want to bring a non-rider with me?

Totally fine! Non riders save $400 off normal trip cost and are welcome to join us in the van. There is amazing hiking from the house and at every ride location. When you reserve your spot we'll ask you to confirm if you are bringing a non-rider and we will invoice you accordingly.

What are the other additional costs?

Airfare can usually be found for around $1,100. You will also be responsible for lift passes ($25 day on average), lunches and two dinners. That's about it.
