DAY 1 : Lake Maggiore
400 KM & 6h
This morning, welcome briefing in Grenoble with the guide!
Let’s go !
We leave our beloved French Alps for Northern Italy.
We follow the Alps and spend the night on the shores of Lake Maggiore where it would be nice to have a fish dish, a local speciality.
DAY 2 : Bormio
Along the shores of Lake Como, we enter the heart of the Alps.
After a stop in the beautiful city of Lugano, we will spend the night at the foot of the Stelvio Pass.
DAY 3 : Dolomites
300 KM & 5h
The sun is just rising over the mountains and we are already on our way to the Stelvio Pass, the second highest road pass in Europe at 2,758m. We enjoy a splendid view from the pass before plunging into the valley and crossing the northern Dolomites into the Austrian Alps.
It is the perfect evening to finish the meal with a delicious apple and honey strudel, the famous Austrian gourmet pastry.
DAY 4 : Slovenia
250 KM & 4h30
We wake up early today because this day will be rich in discoveries. We take off in the direction of Slovenia, crossing the Triglav over the beautiful cobbled Vršič Pass at an altitude of 1,611m. The Triglav is a true Slovenian national symbol with many legends. We will spend the night in the town of Bled where the church of Maria is floating on the lake.
DAY 5 : Slovenia
0 KM & 0h
A well deserved rest day to enjoy Bled and its surroundings. Possible excursion to Ljubjana, the Slovenian capital.

We will cross Maria Alm and Kitzbuhel.
Kitzbuhel, a charming little village with colourful houses, awaits us.
DAY 7 : Zernez
300 KM & 5h
Here we are again on the beautiful mountain roads of Tyrol on our way to Switzerland. The spectacular landscapes of the heart of Tyrol accompany us today. We stop in Alpbach, one of the most beautiful Austrian villages famous for its massive wooden chalets. At the end of the day we cross the Swiss border to our hotel for the night.
DAY 8 : Airolo
310km & 5h
Today, we will ride up to the Julierpass at 2,284m which overlooks the valley of St. Moritz and will guide us to the Gotthard Pass around where we will spend the night.
DAY 9 : Chamonix
4,807330 KM & 5h30
Another spectacular day today with the ascent of the Gotthard Pass via the old paved road with 24 named turns.
Barely enough time to recover from the Gotthard before we attack the impressive Furka Pass.
Perched at 2,429m it is surrounded by polar blue glaciers and alpine roads overlooking green valleys crossed by the famous little red steam train.
Another long ride through the Sion valley will bring us after the Forclaz pass to Chamonix where we will spend the night in front of the 4,807 m high Mont Blanc.
We’re back in France! Home, sweet home!
DAY 10 : Grenoble
