The “Courchevel - Méribel Electric” circuit via Col de la Loze

A unique electric bike experience for your holidays in France

This 20.5km path will take you to discover an area of les 3 Vallées and its magnificent landscapes.

The start point is at the Altiport. You will skirt Méribel’s magnificent golf course, cross forests and mountain pastures, and head towards the col de la Loze pass which is one of the legendary Tour de France mountain stages. Once you arrive at the top, you will see in front of you one of the most beautiful panoramas in the Alps, with a 360° view of peaks and le Mont-Blanc!

You will then descend to Courchevel 1850, and finally return to Méribel via the Altiport forest.

With an electric mountain bike, you can take this trail without difficulties. The 930m total ascent can be achieved by anybody thanks to a little extra help from an electric motor!
