Experience The Joy Of Alps Riding
This is a major overseas trip and is open to all keen Mountain bikers.
Experience the unlimited freedom and excitement of riding in the Alps, and use chairlifts to get back up the hills! This is one of our favourite spots on the planet for biking, and we hope we can show you why.
All You Need To Do Is Arrive - Everything Is Taken Care Of
We offer a 2 week trip, including all accommodation and food. All you have to do is get there, and then worry about pedalling.
We will be based in Samoens, one of the most beautiful little villages in the Alps.
It is a quiet and stunning area with unique beauty and endless natural singletrack to explore. And then just a stones throw away is the MTB mecca of Morzine, which has 17 chair lifts and unlimited riding to be explored. The riding options are amazing, with long 1500m descents over 20km a regular occurrence.
We utilise the chairlifts and will also use a van and trailer get around and maximise riding time. Check out the videos below and photos on our facebook page to get an idea what it is like.
Kick Back In Our Beautiful Chalet
When you are not out riding you can relax in comfort and luxury in our stunning mountain chalet, perched just above the town, offering mesmerising views of the mountains. A beautiful old building that has been done up into a number of attractive roomy apartments, offering flexibility and privacy. It even has a pool to relax any tired legs at the end of the day!
Plus the town square’s shops, bars and patisseries are just a short 5 minute walk. The question is Will you have the energy to walk down to town after a 3 course meal with wine and beer in the evening?
Email us now to reserve a spot, and we will send out a full info pack.
See the 2016 Tour De France come through our beautiful village
As a special in 2016 we are pleased to announce the Tour De France will be racing through the Samoens and Morzine region not once but TWICE!
One day is a time trial, and our final day is the day the Tour De France races through Samoens and up the Col du Joux Plane, a classic route that hasn't been raced in Le Tour since 2006, when a certain Floyd Landis won the stage (later to be disqualified)- it's the last racing day of the tour, with the finish in Paris the next day, so guaranteed to be a classic!
The Escapegoat Difference
With over 4000 happy guests, we know how to make sure you have a great time.
We specialise in small group experiences– you won’t find yourself in a group with 20 others.
We have been operating since 2008 and are the only business operating with an British Cycling level 3 MTB leader qualified instructor- this is a significant qualification, and not just a 2 day course to teach school kids to ride bikes.
We are a fully accredited tourism business and a licensed tour operator, and are the only commercial tour operator currently licensed by DEWNR to operate MTB tours in their Adelaide National Parks. We are also a licensed Passenger Transport business.
We have top-quality high end equipment and are supported by Norco bikes so you can be sure you will be riding great bikes- our hire bikes are high end bikes, and are almost all brand new models.
Ian is a qualified skills coach- not just able to ride well, we are trained to TEACH. Just because someone is a good rider it does not necessarily make them a good teacher. He is also qualified to teach MTBA skills instructors.
We received the “Certificate of Excellence” from Trip Advisor based on our continued 5* ratings and reviews for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015, and consistently voted the best outdoor activity in SA!
Hear the testimonials from the our guests’ mouths
If you like spending time outdoors, you'll most likely enjoy a half day mountain bike tour on the Adelaide hills.
Ian my guide was great. Showed me around some very nice single trails at Fox Creek. Excellent value!!!
