TRIP HIGHLIGHT WHAT WE LOVE

Staying in a quaint village in the heart of the Trois Vallees, come and experience some of the best climbing in the Alps. We love the climb from Courchevel Le Praz to the Courchevel Altiport. Have a coffee at the Pilatus restaurant and watch the planes take off from one of the world's most dangerous airports."
Holiday Itinerary

Upon arrival arrive in either Geneva or Lyon we will be waiting to take you to Courchevel. Check in to the hotel, relax and your bicycle will be delivered.

Start your exploration of Le Trois Vallees by using one of Love Velo's routes, available in GPX. If you're feeling confident, we have an amazing 160km route taking you out to the stunning Col de Roselend and Beaufort featuring 4km of climbing. If you're looking for a less intense route we have a stunning route of half the distance and half the climbing. Just pick your route and cycle.

Carry on exploring the Trois Vallees and maybe try the great 3 Valley challenge taking you across Courchevel, Meribel, Val Thorens and back.

On your final day, your bike will be picked up and we will take you back to the airport.

AREA
INFORMATION

Home to some of the best skiing in Europe, the 3 Valleys also offers excellent cycling during the summer months. For shorter rides, look no further than the epic climb up to the Courchevel 1850 altiport. If you are feeling more adventurous, try a 3 Valley raid across Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens or even down to the valley in Moutiers.

Weather
INFORMATION

The 3 Valleys are best ridden from the early summer months of May and June, through to autumn. Any earlier or later is difficult as the temperature in the mountains is likely to be cold with the threat of bad weather. It is important that you check the weather before you go as even with this information, unseasonable weather can catch the best of cyclists out. Although irregular, it is not unheard of for some cols and passes to sometimes be closed due to inclement weather in the summer so check before you travel.
