Mountain Biking Haute Route

*****   Add a review
#1 of 56 mountain bike trails in France
#1647 in the world

The Haute Route runs for 112 miles from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland. This epic alpine trek can be conducted via bike on singletrack, which is lower than the classic alpine route, which requires glacier travel.
