La Marmotte

La Marmotte will take place on Sunday the 8th of July, and the route will take you over well-known summits, including the Galibier. Here you can find all the information about our all-inclusive stay, including provisioning. There is also an option for a whole week with cycling guidance available.

Marmotte arrangement 2020

During La Marmotte, we rent our chalets following the same concept as our cycling hotel. This means you’ll book a half board stay, including a room and a bathroom. You’ll have access to a spacious living room with a sun terrace. There is also a sauna, and a jacuzzi, or hammam available. Every evening we’ll prepare a delicious and healthy three-course dinner in one of the chalet-restaurants. Furthermore, there will be breakfast waiting for you every morning. As of Tuesday, there will be offered an afternoon pasta meal to provide you with extra energy, so you’ll be fit at the start of La Marmotte.

Renewed concept!

We’ve lowered the prices a bit compared to the past years.  In addition to that, it’s possible to have a shorter stay than before. The minimum stay is 4 nights instead of 5 nights. With these changes, we hope to better meet the different requests of the Marmotte riders. What we didn’t change is the high quality of the stay and the service in our chalets. We’re also happy to keep providing provisioning during La Marmotte.

Sports Programme Marmotte

You will have support from a support vehicle during these days and profit from sports nutrition and sports drinks on the way. And of course, it’s a lot of fun!

You will be guided by two very experienced Marmotte riders. There will be a support vehicle, following you through the mountains every day. You can choose between a shorter and longer route on a daily basis, speed and intensity are also up to you. Do you have doubts about the length of the route or something else? Ask the trainers for advice, that’s what they’re for! After the training, there will be a delicious and healthy pasta meal waiting for you at the chalet. You’ll have the option to be treated by a masseur (for an extra fee).

The sports programme consists of 4 days, from Tuesday until Friday. As it starts on Tuesday, we recommend you to arrive on Monday, which is 1 day longer than the basic arrangement.  In that case, there will be an extra fee of €50,- for 1 day per person.
