Valais MTB Introduction to the Alps

So you’ve got yourself hooked on the addictive sport of mountain biking and you’re ready to embark on your first adrenalin filled, lift assisted trip to the Alps. At the same time though, the choice and challenge is a bit overwhelming. Where to begin? That’s where we come in.

We will take you on an exciting learning experience into the wilderness of high Alpine pastures and endless singletrack that will literally leave you smiling for miles (cheesy, we know, but when in the home of cheese…) We promise that your first mountain bike trip to the Alps will be one you’ll treasure the memory of.

With a particular emphasis on mountain safety, our Introduction to the Alps week will help you to gain confidence on those legendary steeps or exposed lines, ensuring that you develop a skill level that will have you comfortable riding high Alpine terrain. Valais is the perfect place to discover the Alps as, unlike some Alpine resorts, its not swarming with crowds. This sense of remote riding allows you to develop at your own pace, without the pressure of punters either slowing you down or speeding you up. You can discover the Alps at the speed you want, experiencing just some of our endless back country potential…

Valais MTB’s Introduction to the Alps is a week of no pressure (except what’s needed in your tyres!). You don’t have to be an expert rider to enjoy our bike holidays. Our guides are here to help you learn and acclimatize to the challenges of Alpine riding. And this trip is as much about the experience of being in the Alps as it is about the riding – sampling Swiss culture, stopping in high Alpine hamlets for lunch and to take in the stunning views. You will end each day on a high, scrolling through and sharing scenic photos with your new riding buddies.

If you are already a group of 6, we can offer a fully customized trip to bring your riding to the next level, making sure you get the most out of your trip and, most importantly, value for money. However, if you’re a club member and your group is bigger than this, then please do contact us so that we can tailor a bespoke package that will suit your group size.
