Guided road and gravel cycling tours

A week in Bourg Saint Maurice

At the end of the Tarentaise valley lies the cosy town of Bourg Saint Maurice.


Surrounded by big Alpine cols it’s the ideal base camp for a week of cycling in breathtaking surroundings.


We’ll do a number of famous cols like Cormet de Roselend and Col de l’Iséran and sprinkle in a few hidden gems like the Colle San Carlo or the Col du Pré. 


We take care of the itineraries, lodging, briefing packs and bike guide and/or support vehicle. All you’ll have to do is pedal !

Day by day

Sunday

  • Arrival in hotel Base Camp Lodge and dinner


Monday

  • We pop across the border via the gorgeous Col du Petit Saint-Bernard for an authentic Italian pizza. And for the strong climbers we have a spicy dessert in store…


Tuesday

  • We cross over to the Beaufortain valley via the Cormet de Roselend and complete a wonderful loop by riding over the Roselend dam.


Wednesday

  • We take a little breather halfway the week with a shorter, easier and very scenic ride on both sides of the valley.

Day by day

Thursday

  • If everyone’s still up for it, we will tackle the toughest col in France today. The last 7 km are guaranteed to explode your legs. Luckily there’s an easier side for those who don’t appreciate gradients above 15%.


Friday

  • We close off our week on the highest col in Europe, the Col de l’Iseran


Saturday

  • Return trip



On average we will ride between 70-90 km per day with a positive altitude gain between 2.000 and 3.000 m. However all rides can be made lighter or heavier taking into account the level of the group, fatigue or the weather.
