Mountain Biking Holidays - Les Deux Alpes - Alpe d'Huez -

Downhill and Freeride

The lifts of Les Deux Alpes mountain resort are only a five minute drive or fifteen minute cycle ride from our Lodge. From here you access one of the world’s fastest developing areas for mountain biking. Recently Les Deux Alpes has invested in upgrading their facilities to encourage more mountain bikers to its slopes. It now features nine lifts adapted to carry your mountain bikes, accessing almost 110km of cross country, free ride and downhill tracks ranging in altitudes from 3200m down to 700m, as well as three specific downhill courses and a freestyle terrain park. For the experienced or brave, it’s possible to ride the Mountain of Hell from Les Deux Alpes glacier right down to the valley in Venosc - an almost entirely downhill run of over 25km. The area is now so popular for mountain biking that in 2006 Les Deux Alpes was the host for the mountain biking World Cup. Also within a 20 minute drive is Alpe d’Huez mountain resort which is equally committed to offering incredible mountain biking opportunities and annually hosts the legendary marathon of downhill mountain biking - The Mega Avalanche.

        

Cross Country

The region itself offers unlimited opportunities to explore hundreds of kilometres of cross country tracks with the possibility of linking tours with overnight stop-offs in mountain refuges. A spectacular track runs directly through our property for 30km up the valley, alongside the beautiful Veneon river.
