The Alps are not only a winter playground, and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery, the Belleville Valley is one of the best valleys in the Alps to visit during the summer.
The French Alps offer some of the best mountain biking in Europe, suited for all abilities. The use of lifts opens up a fantastic network of man-made and natural fire road single track terrains for the downhill mountain bike enthusiasts, beginners and other cross-country lovers.
The beautiful Belleville Valley is a French Cycling Federation Area and has 21 MTB itineraries in Val Thorens, Les Menuires and Saint Martin de Belleville covering 120km of mountainous terrain. You will find yourself riding along picturesque river edges and mountain slopes, to the resorts and villages of the area - including a few ridges if you dare.
There are different levels to suit all abilities, so you are free to take a ride with your family or friends along the stunning trails that are clearly mapped out and lots of fun! The scenery is spectacular, and if the weather suits, there’s nothing better than having a picnic and quick sunbathe in the fresh Alpine air.
Spending a week as a beginner on a mountain bike is exceptionally rewarding and satisfying knowing how much you are improving on a day to day basis.
For those of you that love your downhill biking, then there are numerous tracks and routes available - all of which can be reached by the open chair lifts.
