Easy eBike Tours to Discover the Chamonix Valley

A selection of the easiest gravel and singletrack trails in the Chamonix Valley.

Description

The best way to explore the Chamonix Valley is on the back of a bicycle! If you prefer less work and more cruising, rent an ebike from one of the many rental shops in town and hit one of these easy valley routes.

Even within this guidebook you’ll find a variety of different ride difficulties to choose from. For the absolute easiest rides, stick to the Les Bois and Chamonix Valley Gravel Ride routes.

For a more challenging aerobic workout, pedal up the gravel road to the Buvette des Mottets hut. And for a more challenging trail ride with plenty of rocks and roots to negotiate, consider tackling the classic loop on the Petit Balcon trails.
