French Alps

Cycling and switchbacks on Col d'Izoard in the Alps

Tour Description

August 2024 – Here is a classic cycling tour to challenge all recreational cyclists looking to tick off a full bucket list of epic climbs in the French Alps. It all kicks off in Grenoble the capital of the French Alps and concludes on Mont Ventoux affectionately known as the ‘Geant de Provence’. This iconic route includes some of the biggest household name climbs with Alpe d´Huez, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col de l’Iseran, Col du Galibier and Col d’Izoard all dotted along the route path.

There is no doubting that the giants of the French Alps will have you gasping for oxygen; Col de l’Iseran (2770m altitude), Col de la Bonette (2715m altitude) and Col du Galibier (2642m altitude). But what adds to this epic cycling adventure are the lesser known climbs such as Col de la Sarenne, Lacets de Montvernier and Col du Murs. Breathtaking scenery, challenging climbs, awesome descents and the quiet backroad experience all await!

Client Reviews (French Alps)

Jenny (Griffith, NSW, Australia)

We enjoyed everything about the trip, the towns and the hotels we stayed in were great choices. I think you lads do a great job and handle the different personalities with ease and calm. We would certainly like to experience another cycling tour with you and will recommend you to anyone who is thinking of doing a cycling holiday.
