Welcome to our home! From the vineyards of the Chablais to the base of the glacier in Les Diablerets, discover the Alpes vaudoises, their characteristic mountain chalets, their high mountain pastures and their snowy summits.

We are lucky to be based in this cycling paradise, which is easily accessible by road, train and plane. Here you will find everything from challenging mountain passes to easy riding in the Rhone Valley, all on roads with little traffic and in excellent condition. The region is also a centre for world cycling, home to the headquarters of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and regular host of stages of the Tour de Romandie and the Tour de Suisse.

This tour will bring you on a journey to discover our favorite roads of the Alpes vaudoises in 4 days, through the region’s most famous passes: Col des Mosses, Col du Pillon and Col de la Croix, which link the mountain resorts of Les Diablerets, Château d'Oex, Villars and Gryon.

You can go on a self-guided version of this tour any time between May 15 and September 30 (price from CHF 560 - book here). It is also possible to organise this tour for private groups (minimum 6 people). Contact us for details.
