Guided Mountain Bike Holidays


Why your next mountain biking holiday should be with Alpine Ethos....

What do you look for in a guided mountain biking holiday in the French Alps? Endless single track? Technical trails and tight switch backs? Awe inspiring views? Lift assisted riding? Big, burly, bermy, bikepark trails? 2000m plus vertical descents? A mountain bike guide that can show you the best the French Alps has to offer? Meribel and the 3 Valleys has all of that and two more things: No queues and quiet trails.

Ride some of the best Alpine mountain bike trails in France...

We believe that Meribel and the surrounding valleys have some of the best, most fun, smile inducing, loamy, technical, open, treelined runs you can find in the French Alps. With views of Mont Blanc from the peaks and 2000m of vertical descent to ride you've got an amazing Alpine playground waiting for you.

Our standard package includes 5 days guided riding and one rest day. You'll spend 3 days on our local trails in Meribel, St Martin and the Three Valleys, a day in the saddle pedalling up to Mont Jovet giving way to an unforgettable ride back down to Bozel and an away day in Les Arcs, La Plagne or Tignes.

The Chalet

We think the chalet ticks all the boxes for an amazing guided mountain biking holiday. From the hot tub and sauna to refresh your legs after riding all that singletrack, the sunny balcony to recount the day's adventures, the large living area with ample seating; you won't be disappointed.


Hot tub, sauna, secure bike storage, free wifi, Nintendo Wiis, ipod docks, books and board games



Food is a mountain bikers fuel. It should be tasty and plentiful. We offer generous breakfasts, packed lunch, afternoon tea and 2 course meals with wine and beer. Yum.


We have over 10 years of experience in the hospitality industry and over 100 5* reviews on TripAdvisor. We will go the extra mile so that you can do the same every day you ride.


It's your holiday and we're here to help you make the most of it. Advice, chat, bike envy, we'll provide it all to give you the best holiday possible.
