Savoie by Bike: Top MTB Trails in Tignes and Val D’Isère

These routes are so fun and varied that novices and experts alike will love riding them.

Description

Visit Tignes and Val D’Isère and you’re entering a biker’s paradise. The area offers a wide range of routes and is easily accessible, especially with its 5 lifts and a shuttle bus from les Brévières.

If you’re looking for something a bit easier, check out Popeye Trail. If you want something easy but with a bit of spice, you should definitely give Smoothie Trail a go. The trails are so well designed that both a novice and expert will enjoy it.

Tarentaise Airline Trail creates a smooth transition between the trail systems in Tignes and Val D’Isère. You’ll catch some awesome views along the way but also some super-fast berms, drops, and easy tabletop jumps (with ride-around options).

The Bike Park is Tignes and Val D’Isère is one of the lesser known parks in the Alps, which means you can avoid some of the crowds. Keep an eye out for the Very Bike Trip (VBT), known as the hardest all-mountain trail in the area.
