The Southern Alps have glistening snow caps during the summer and have a unique beauty. The steep sides give way to some spectacular views as hair pin turns wind their way up and down these incredible and legendary rides.

  • Ride Mont Ventoux - the “Giant of Provence”
  • Climb the Galibier - The most popular 2500 metre plus pass in TDF history
  • Experience Alpe D’Huez - The most popular stage finish in TDF history

This particular trip hits all the French Alps highlights you could possibly want in a cycling holiday. In this trip we predominately tour the Southern Alps and cover the routes of some epic climbing battles, the famous rides that have entered the history books.

At Polka Dot Cycling Holidays we know that these trips are not just about the rides, it is about the whole experience and so we make it one of our top priorities to give you charming hotels and wonderful views with a good drink and great company.
