a 6 days bike adventures through the Haute Savoie
Starting from Samoëns we link up the best bike spots of the Haute Savoie. We use a skilift to climb the first hundreds of meters, followed by a climb to arrive at a remote mountainhut where we'll spend the night. An early sunset wakes you up, while you get ready for another awesome day of singletrack shredding.

After a first night in Samoëns, our Trans74 adventure is starting. In 6 days we ride around the Haute Savoie; climbing up peaks, enjoying spectaculair views, followed by another amazing descent into the next valley. After a long and exciting the on the bike, we arrive at our next mountainhut. But before enjoying a well deserved beer, we first have to wash our bikegear for the next day riding. On this trip we are self supporting, so we have to pack as light as we can.
Every night we will sleep on a different location, mainly in authentic and remote mountainhuts. Some are having a shower, but most haven't. They do have a nice meal, a cold beer and a warm bed though, which is very welcome after a long day on the bike. Dinners and breakfasts are included and for lunch we have to buy a picnic or eat in a mountain restaurant.
Every day we use skilifts where possible. This can be a one way ticket or a full day pass, depending on the interest of the area and the way we have to travel. Don't bring a downhill bike as there is quiete a bit of paddling involved as well! A trail or enduro bike with 140-160mm (full suspension) travel is ideal. To enjoy this trip you need to be (bike)fit and you need to have experience with technical alpine trails.
Every day we ride about 50km's, 800m up (and the rest by skilifts) and 2800m down, by sometimes flowy, sometimes rocky, sometimes techy, but above all: awesome singletracks!
E bike option
Because of using skilifts, we can organise you the regular Trans74 in July-August. In June and September we can offer you this trip as well by using E(lectric Enduro)Bikes! With an E-assisted bike we cover more distance, we won't need any skilifts and we will have as much FUN on the way down as on a regular mountainbike. It's just a whole new E-xperience :)
