Live the legend of the Tour de France, riding on the same routes and under the same conditions as the professionals: this is the promise that L‘Etape du Tour has kept since 1993.

Every year, we invite you to ride one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France: the same stage towns, the same routes, the same mythical climbs but also, and above all, the same race conditions as on the Tour. As the result of a significant amount of work carried out in partnership with the police, local organizations and local authorities, L ‘Etape du Tour is the only cyclosportive to offer routes which are entirely closed to traffic. With 28 editions under its belt and a peloton of 15,000 participants, L ‘Etape du Tour is now Europe’s benchmark cyclosportive event.

For the 29th edition that will take you, on July 21st 2019, from Albertville to Val Thorens, we booked for you the 1* Fasthotel Albertville (  in Albertville on bed & breakfast basis (bed, breakfast city tax included). You will be only a short distance from the village and the start.

The highlights of the package

  •  1* Hotel ideally located in Albertville
  • Hotels booked on B&B (room, breakfast and city tax included)
  • Access to our private feed stop
