Day Packages and Extra Activities

Mountain bike madness & massage

Why not spend a few hours mountain biking on easy forest trails with wonderful views over the Chamonix valley.

Taking a break from two wheels at the helipad in Argentiere, a breathtaking helicopter ride takes us right up close to the incredible ice walls of the Argentiere glacier.

We rejoin our bikes close to the Lognan lift station for a beautiful downhill ride back to the valley floor, ending the day with tea and a jacuzzi at the exclusive Albert 1er hotel in Chamonix.

Includes bike renting, guide, lifts access, helicopter, tea.

Wet and wild day

After a few hours mountain biking on gentle forest trails around the Chamonix valley, we feel you’ve earned a special treat.

Our spectacular helicopter ride takes us so close to the towering peaks of the Mont Blanc massif, you could almost touch them.

With our feet back on terra firma we then take a short transfer to the white water rafting base for a delicious barbeque, finishing the day with an exciting raft descent of the River Arve.

Includes bike renting, guide, helicopter, lunch and white water rafting and taxi back to Chamonix.
