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).

These are coed adults trips offering for advanced intermediate plus riders. We’ll have two guides and two vans to allow us to split into groups each day allowing for an intermediate plus group and an advanced/expert group. 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 guiding, breakfast and dinner and 7 nights lodging. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE TRIP FAQ'S AND TRAVEL GUIDE below.
TOUR 2: August 11 - August 18, 2018
This trip has been mostly pre-booked out by returning riders from years past (Thanks Zon!). If you are an advanced rider (don't have to be expert level) and want to join this super fun crew, we have a few spots left. Most riders in this group are men in the 40+ age category and are solid riders with great attitudes. Super cool crew! One of the guys from the group wrote up a great article which gives you a look into the trip (advanced van): http://forums.mtbr.com/washington/fluidride-alps-tour-1061664.html
The Not So Fine Print
All Tours are fully refundable until January 2nd, 2018. Riders canceling between January 2, 2018 and February, 2018 will receive a 50% refund (of total trip price). No refunds after February 1, 2018. If you are on one of our payment plans, your card will be continue to be charged until the trip is paid in full. No exceptions. We highly recommend you purchase trip protection through World Nomads to protect your investment. Insurance is inexpensive and covers you for more than just the purchase price of your trip.
What if I just want to pay in full now?
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 $1100. You will also be responsible for lift passes ($25 day on average), lunches and two dinners. That's about it.
