Highlights:
The Haute Route Rockies is a challenging event not only because of the distance and climbing, but also because of the high altitude of the location, always 2000m above sea level.
Really enjoy the week of racing from the very first day, by allowing time for your body to acclimatise at this high altitude for a few days. There is no need to train hard, just tapering as you normally do before a race like this but doing it at the same altitude as the race course.

The tour will involve some riding and recovering, exactly the way all pro’s do it!
As the main activity will be the morning ride, you will have plenty of time to relax in the afternoon. You will ride with experienced guides who are racers as well, happy to share all their knowledge with you!

Our hotel is in a fantastic mountain town located at 2400m above sea level, offering incredible rides and outdoor activities.   The last day, we will ride to Boulder and check in at the hotel where we’ll spend the first three nights of the race. You’ll be perfectly acclimatised by then, and ready to ride at your normal power!

Join us for the full 5 days acclimatisation, or however many days you wish - you choose!  You will just need to be at our hotel in time for the start of the morning ride your first day.  We can book you in for the extra night the day before your first day if you wish.
