This tour will take you right into the heart of the Swiss and French Alps, revealing more than just the exhilarating high alpine passes. Tune in!

From Milan, we will take you through picturesque Switzerland to the stunning French Alps, experiencing all the main passes along the route. The narrow track of Swiss Furka Pass, the panoramic Col de la Bonette in France and the highest paved pass in the Alps, Col de L'Iseran will bring on the adrenaline rush, while sinuous roads will take you further into less traveled parts of France.

Riding mountain ranges such as Chartreuse, putting your vertigo to a test on the Combe Laval balcony road, and admiring numerous French lakes along the way are just some of the gems you can look forward to on this unique journey. You are invited to join the ride and pick your own favorite moment to be remembered.

Day by day

Day 1: Arrival in Milan

Welcome to Milan, the fashion capital of the world!

We will meet you at the Malpensa airport and take you to your hotel on the outskirts of Milan, near the airport. Depending on when you arrive, you'll have some time to relax and rest or do some sightseeing before the tour briefing. At 4 PM, we'll meet for the introductory briefing and in the evening enjoy a welcome dinner at a classic Italian Trattoria.

Day 2: Milan – Grimsel Pass

Leaving the flat city area, we will head north, immersing ourselves in the beautiful scenery of the Alps.

Passing Lake Como, we'll cross into Switzerland, conquering the famous Novena, Furka and Susten passes. We will spend the night under the stars, right on the top of the Grimsel Pass.

Day 3: Grimsel Pass - Evian

From the Grimsel Pass, we will descend into the valley, passing Lake Brienz and stopping in Unterseen, Interlaken’s Old Town.

We will continue into the Swiss rolling hills. Sweeping and curvy roads will carry you over Jaunpass and past Gruyères for a quick cheese tasting and a castle photo. We'll spend the night at Évian-les-Bains, French seaside resort on Lake Geneva.

Day 4: Evian – Vercors

Leaving the spa town of Évian-les-Bains, we’ll head to Annecy, also called the “Alpine Venice,” to enjoy a stroll along the canals, before climbing up into the mountains again.

We will ride through and over the Bauges and Chartreuse mountain ranges, following endless sweepers and diving in and out of the forests. You'll end the day in a small village, high up in the heart of the Vercors Masiff.

Day 5: Vercors - Embrun

The famous road Combe Laval, will test your vertigo as you ride the narrow cliffside road carved into rock, staring down on Provence in the background.

Descending into the valley, we get to spend the night at the edge of the biggest artificial lake in Europe, Serre-Ponçon.

Day 6: Embrun rest day

We will spend this day beneath the peaks of the Hautes Alpes.

You will have the choice of doing a nice ride around the lake of Serre-Poncon or exploring passes like Col de la Bonnette and Col de Vars. Should you prefer to spend your day off the bike, you will have plenty of options for leisure time in the environs of a magical castle.

Day 7: Embrun – Chamonix

An exhilarating ride awaits! After riding up Col d’Izoard, we’ll make a short stop in the medieval town of Briancon.

From here, you'll experience rollercoaster riding in and out of Italy and France, alongside crystalline lakes and scenic views. Not to mention the highlight of the day - climbing the highest paved pass of the Alps—Col de L'Iseran—before settling for the night in Chamonix.

Day 8: Chamonix – Milan

Before saying goodbye to Chamonix, we’ll take the cable car to The Aiguille du Midi in the shadow of the majestic Mont Blanc.

We will ride over the Great St. Bernard Pass on our way back to Italy. Expect a very scenic ride, with the mighty Alps staring down at you from every corner, while slowly descending to the valley and back to our starting point in Milan.

Day 9: Milan departure

Departure.

Depending on the time of your flight back home, you may have time to stroll downtown Milan and walk on the roof of the famous Milan cathedral, which took nearly six centuries to complete, and is the largest in the Italian state territory.
