Day 1

Montreux

We will be meeting in the afternoon to introduce the group and share insights about the trip. We will give you the bikepacking bags and help you re-pack for the trip since your suitcase will stay behind at the hotel. Soon after we will test out our e-mountain bikes to make sure everyone feels comfortable on them. After a dinner together at the hotel, you are free to hang around, go for a walk along Lac Léman, or just head off to bed early to make sure you are rested of the first cycling day!

Highlights: Lac Léman, Freddie Mercury Statue

Day 2

Montreux - Col de Bretaye (44km | ↑1510m ↓80m)

First day of riding. It’s an easy going day today, so we’ll take our time in the morning to enjoy breakfast and get the hang of our bikes before heading off to climb up to Col de Bretaye. The ride starts flat on a very enjoyable bike lane along Lac Léman and the Rhône river. We’ll do a quick stop by the vineyards in the area as well as the emblematic Château de Chillon and Château d’Aigle. Today we will also take an exciting single-track path through a forest to work on our balance skills! Once up there, it’s time to relax and enjoy our sophisticated refuge. After a meal together, we’ll head off to one of the nearby hills to enjoy a panoramic sunset view.

Day 3

Col de Bretaye - Leysin (30km | ↑820m ↓1230m)

Today we make our way towards Leysin. It’s an easy going day today, so we’ll take our time in the morning to enjoy the hotel’s view before descending into the valley. Today we tackle some short and cool single tracks as well as enjoyable gravel paths and will enjoy a picnic on the way. After a short climb to Leysin we get to our lovely hotel and have the afternoon for ourselves to perhaps go for a walk or enjoy the hotel’s jacuzzi and views from the terrace. After freshening up and a plentiful meal together, we’ll do a quick ride to Prafandaz—a lovely viewpoint from where we will be able to enjoy a lovely sunset over the panoramic views of Lac Léman.

Highlights: Lac des Chavonnes, Tête de Meilleret, Prafandaz

Day 4

Leysin - Allières (32km | ↑710m ↓1100m)

After a lovely breakfast at the hotel, we get going as today we will be tackling some fun single tracks and gravel paths. We will stop for a picnic lunch at Lac L’Hongrin and from there, we will follow valley on a lovely gravel path down to Alliéres. Our stay tonight is the most sober but gives a true insight and experience of Swiss mountain lodging. Still got energy? Then we’ll head up to Col de Jaman for sunset!

Day 5

Allières - Montreux (30km | ↑750m ↓1380m)

Last day on the bike! Today we cover the last kilometers on a part of the track of the ultra endurance bike race: Hope1000. We start by ascending up to Col de Jaman on a very exciting gravel path. But that’s not it. Before claiming our well deserved descend back to Lac Léman, we will conquer one last hike-a-bike through a forest path. We’ll have the afternoon free for ourselves to clean up, pack your luggage into the suitcase again and rest before heading into the hotel restaurant for a last dinner together.
