You might think Chamonix is expensive to go riding, but it doesn’t have to be.
There are often good deals to be found if you fly to Geneva, usually around £85 including bike. Then catch the train up to Chamonix for €25 return.
Camp in the Chamonix valley at Camping Mer De Glace from €14.30 per person in May, June and September plus just €7.50 per extra person.
You’ll get a free train pass with your stay, so use this explore Vallorcine and Servoz. If you’re super fit, you can skip the lift pass, cycle up and enjoy the steep singletrack descents!
Get in there quick though, as most trails close at the end of June.
