Stay in a lovely chalet-hotel and be looked after by the Ciclo Magic French Alps team. A plentiful breakfast to start the day and a nutritious home-cooked evening meal.
Off the bike this valley has incredible hiking, running, climbing and rafting. From the chalet door a network of easy to follow footpaths travel alongside the river and ascend high up the mountain side.
If you choose to take a rest day, relax in the natural thermal spa of Le Monetier les Bains or stroll the streets of Briancon’s beautiful old town. A place of history and art. A celebration of local cuisine.
