Edelweiss Escapes

If you fancy a few days away from work, away from the city stress, or if you just want to escape for a long weekend with your friends, than one of our mini breaks in the mountains might be of interest to you.

And for those who dreamt of cycling the famous mythical cols of the Tour de France in a few days, and you thought you were not fit enough to do it, we have tailored a few selfguided tours on high-end electric mountain bikes: you can soak up the stunning views while pedaling leasurely through and up the mountains, and enjoy well deserved lunch stops in carefully selected small restaurants.

All our tours have been selected for you as a great way to escape and recharge your batteries and most importantly, to have fun! The cycling tours are for anyone with some cycling experience and who like to combine the beauty of our mountains with the pleasures of good food.

And for all our tours our motto is: good times with good food and good wines!

Customized and à la carte escapes are possible too, as well as tailor made activities for seminars, incentives and team building exercises.

The Auberge Edelweiss La Grave

The majority of our trips and tours start from Hotel Auberge Edelweiss, a privately owned centuries old coaching inn, situated in the heart of the 12th century village of La Grave.

If you like to stay a few days to explore the area, the Auberge Edelweiss has 14 comfortable rooms, serves big breakfast buffet and delicious evening meals, a huge wine list, great panoramic terrace facing the glaciers, and free sauna: www.hotel-edelweiss.com
