Epic Mountain Bike Adventures Around Albertville

Top 3 Mountain Bike trails in the beautiful Savoie region of France.

Description

They’re scenic, technical, and totally gnarly at points! Ascend over rocky ridges, navigate black ice and enjoy spectacular views at the summit. From meadows to lakes and views of the Sassière glacier and the western Alps, you’re in for a visual feast. There’s also lots of nice bar options in the local villages to sit back and celebrate a good day's ride.

Brace yourself for long uphill paths and exposed near vertical drops. These adventures will take you right to the top and back again, and they’ll no doubt push even advanced riders to their limits.
