Today we will pick up at the Chamonix train station in the late morning. We will head directly to the finish area of today’s stage in Megève.

Megève is a mountain resort town where you’ll find a place, next to the locals, to cheer on the racers as they pass on their way to the finish line. Town crowds add to the excitement of the Tour de France as they are proud to host such an event.

Our hotel in Chamonix is located at the base of Mont Blanc. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a welcome dinner with our guide and the group.

Day 02

VIP start village

Date Wednesday, July 13 Hotel Location Vaujunay

This morning we’ll check out of our hotel and transfer into another region of the French Alps. We’ll make a stop in Albertville, which is the start city for today’s stage. Our VIP venue is at the Start Village. You’ll enjoy finger foods, drinks and will be able to view the racers line up as they are announced for the start of Stage 11.

Once the racers have departed, you’ll grab some lunch and then we’ll transfer for a couple hours to the picturesque town of Vaujunay. This ski town is on the back side of Alpe d’Huez and is a great place to take in the tremendous views.

You’ll be on your own for dinner tonight. Accommodations are chalet/apartment style where you will have a private bedroom and will share a common area with another couple or single.

Day 03

Pictures on the podium and private viewing on Alpe d'Huez

Date Thursday, July 14 Hotel Location Vaujunay

Happy Bastille Day! The 21 bends of Alpe d’Huez are legendary and you will have a story to tell your friends and family for many, many years. You will have the morning to explore the area before the group meets to tour the podium and to take pictures. This is a unique VIP experience that our clients love!

After the podium, we will make our way on foot to our chalet to have a private, outdoor viewing party to see the racers make this historic climb. A chef will grill food and there will be plenty to eat and drink as we watch the battle up this steep mountain. The chalet has an outstanding location between turns 2 and 1 for one of the most important days of the Tour.

Today you will want to wear your comfortable walking shoes. There will be a fair amount of walking with some parts on an unpaved incline and decline.

Tonight will be our last night together, so we will have our farewell dinner and share stories from the week.
