Your journey begins in the Haute-Savoie town of Annecy, overlooking its namesake lake, Europe’s most pristine. Beyond the stunning mountain and lake views, be charmed by the sparkling canals and cobblestone streets. Cycle along the lake’s shoreline towards its tallest mountain, La Tournette. Pedal up the switchbacks of the 2018 Stage 10 of the Tour de France from Bluffy to La Clusaz. Ride into the Rhone Alps through the chic farming villages of Flumet and Megève, where you will break for a picnic lunch to soak in the surrounding vistas.

Explore the shops, brasseries and century-old pathways of the ski resort village of Chamonix, known for hosting the first winter Olympics in 1924 at the base of Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s tallest mountain at 15,781 feet (4810m). Hike up the Grand Balcon Sud of Mont Blanc and visit the famed Mer De Glace. Recharge in the alpine setting of Hameau Albert 1er and savor traditional French and Alpine cuisine, prepared by the region’s best chefs.
