Depending on the length of the trails and long it takes to get to them between 3 and 6 roughly.
How hard are the trails we will be riding?
Quite difficult, the riding here is varied between flowy, technical, tight and high alpine single track. There is exposure in places and there are some trails with demanding switchback sections. There are very few jumps or man made obstacles, you'll find roots and rocks and most lines.
Is there any pushing or pedalling?
Yes, but you have an E-Bike! Expect each day to have around 1000m of climbing and 2500m of descending at a minimum, with uplift assistance. The uplift will be used 1 - 3 times each day.

Yes, you can bring your own E-Bike, you can rent a battery from Luca as long as it is compatible, they only carry Specialized. If the whole group wishes to bring their bikes please advise us in advance so we can be sure to arrange a trailer for the airport transfer.
You can bring your own pedal, non E-bike, but you'll be on the same program as the E-Bikers, unless the whole group bring their own bikes. Please inquire for a price for a tour built around uplifts.
In both instances the price per person will change, we can advise on inquiry.

Absolutely. With the UK's departure from the EU your EH111 card no longer covers medical care. You'll also want insurance against other circumstances such as bike theft, damage or cancellation for personal reasons. We recommend Yellow Jersey. Booking with us gets you a discount code for a 10% off.

Good choice of chalets and fairly priced for the area. MTB hire and mechanic were awesome, definitely reccomend if your travelling for MTB. Chalet staff were the only downside to our holiday, came across rude and unorganized when we arrived. Didn't tell us alot about the chalet and don't provide enough essentials for the week (eg. Toilet roll and bin bags) however, all being said, this can definitely be improved and we will be staying again in the future 🤙🇫🇷
