Highlights

For those who have grown up in front of the television following the exploits of the Tour de France champions, this tour is an essential piece to tackle at least once in a lifetime.

7 days of cycling organized to climb all the most important peaks of the French Alps, from the most historical to the most recent, but no less fascinating.

We start from the Col de l’Iseran, the highest alpine pass in Europe, and then we go with Galibier, Croix de Fer, Izoard, Telegraphe and Bonette, just to name a few.

But it doesn’t end there.

Have you ever thought, after a week over 2000m, to take a bath in the warm Mediterranean Sea and enjoy a well-deserved rest with a dinner of oysters and champagne, among the old streets of Nice? And, the following morning, ride on the most famous climbs of the Côte d’Azur?

As you have understood, it is a truly unmissable and unique tour. From the Alps to the Mediterranean: we are waiting for you.
