Road Biking Holidays in the Alps

Road Biking Holidays in the Alps

Road cycling holidays in the Alps are a must for all cycling enthusiasts, whether casual riders or more experienced. Alps cycling holidays offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tackle the most famous cycling routes in the world, including famed Tour de France climbs or Giro d’Italia peaks. For more leisurely cyclists there are untold opportunities to explore beautiful alpine roads and passes on two wheels.

When considering where to stay on an Alps cycling holiday, it’s worth thinking about the type of bike rides you’re looking for. For iconic routes, there’s the world’s most famous bike climb up to the sunny resort of Alpe d’Huez, or perhaps the highest mountain pass in Europe? The Col de l’Iseran from Val d’Isere is simply stunning and a huge achievement to tick off the list during a luxury cycling holiday.

For a more leisurely experience, there’s something for everyone when road cycling in the Alps. Morzine and Les Gets are both popular resorts for luxury cycling holidays in France, while Lech in Austria and Alta Badia in Italy both offer a plethora of alpine road biking routes to explore from more moderate options to challenging climbs.

Best Cycling Destination in the Mountains for Moderate Cyclists

For luxury cycling holidays with fine food and wine, gentle cycles through awe-inspiring landscapes, and luxury accommodation for a well-deserved rest, the Dolomites are a fantastic choice. Well maintained cycle paths wind through picturesque valleys, as dramatic peaks rise above. Try Arabba, Brunico and Cortina for a summer cycling holiday with an Italian twist.

Top Luxury Cycling Holiday Destination in France

We love Meribel in summer, and it offers amazing cycling routes to explore, as well as plenty for non-riders to enjoy during a summer holiday to the Alps. The famous Col de la Loze is a challenge enthusiastic cyclists will relish, while some of the finest luxury chalets in the Alps, a plethora of good restaurants, and lots of other summer holiday activities make Meribel a tempting destination for a luxury summer vacation in the Alps.
