a 6 days hut to hut mountain bike adventure
Starting from Samoëns we link up the best enduro mountain bike destinations of the Haute Savoie. We use a skilift to gain the first hundreds of meters, followed by a climb to arrive at another sweet trail to reach the mountainhut where we'll spend the night. An early sunset wakes you up, while you get ready for another awesome day of riding the best single tracks of the Haute Savoie.
Date: Summer 2024

After a first night in or around Samoëns, our Transseventyfour mountain bike adventure starts! In 6 days we are riding the best trails of the Haute Savoie; climbing up peaks, using lifts where possible, enjoying spectaculair views, followed by another amazing descent into the next valley. After a long and exciting day on the bike, we arrive at our next mountainhut. 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 with and some without a (warm) shower. But they definitely propose us a nice meal, a cold beer and a warm bed in the dorm. All very welcome after a long day on the bike! Dinners and breakfasts are included during 5 days.
Every day we use skilifts (and a train) 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, having experience with technical alpine trails and you better have an adventurous and flexible spirit.
Every day we ride about 50km's, 500-1000m up (and the rest by skilifts) and an avarage of 2500m down, by sometimes flowy, sometimes rocky, sometimes techy, but above all: awesome singletracks!
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 :)
