Swiss Alps 2024

24 July to 1 August 2024 (9 Days / 8 Nights)

So, you think you can climb?

From Geneva we move quickly into the heart of the Swiss Alps. In an instant you will appreciate the iconic standing of climbs such as Sanetsch Pass, Nufenen Pass, Old Tremola Road, Furka Pass, Grimsel Pass and Gross Scheidegg. Here you are cycling in the shadows of Mont Blanc (Europe’s highest mountain), Cervino (aka ‘Matterhorn’) and Eiger (aka ‘Ogre’). This is the perfect trip for road cyclists who have explored France, Italy and Spain (the 3 pillars of road cycling) and are now looking forward to something truly wild and spectacular!

3850€ (twin share) Single supplement (750€)
