Where to Mountain Bike in the Alps for Views

Realistically you can’t pick a bad alpine resort for beautiful views – they’re all lovely! We think there’s a particularly stunning mountain biking destination above Samoens however which is well worth a visit. It’s convenient – you can hop on lifts all the way up to the top above the neighbouring resort of Flaine, and once you step off the lift the most dramatic mountain panorama opens up in front of you, including Mont Blanc. From here, let gravity help you out; it’s downhill all the way back down to Samoens.

Where to go for a Luxury Mountain Bike Holiday

Crans Montana is an underrated gem for a summer holiday in the Alps, and for mountain bikers, there are some top quality routes to explore – it’s a great choice if you’re looking to explore somewhere different. Alternatively, discover the iconic resort of Zermatt on two wheels; there’s some stunning single-track routes to tackle, all overlooked by the majestic Matterhorn. For a fully rounded mountain biking holiday, there’s some fantastic restaurants and lively nightlife to enjoy too!
