BIKING

The Aosta Valley is heaven on earth for bike riding with its endless flow of trails, its disarming panorama and the wide range of options. The number of trails you can ride is mind blowing. The bike parks are just the tip of the iceberg, treat your curiosity and come roll through the deep wilderness. Sign up to our newsletter and we'll contact you to set up your perfect adrenaline fuelled holiday!

Proudly overlooking the region’s capital, Aosta, sits the alpine resort of Pila, which for decades has hosted skiers, walkers and climbers alike. Over the last few years, and having hosted MTB world cup races (with a course designed by Corrado Herin – Former Downhill Champion), Pila has established itself as a hidden gem within the MTB community. Pila’s bike park has plenty to offer every ability, from sweeping berms to tricky technical sections all brought together within 16 intertwining trails. New for summer 2017 was the addition of the "Desarpa" bike trail which throws into the mix a 15km trail with a descent of over 2100m! Away from the Bike Park, Pila has a superb array of cross country trails covering over 185km. This is more than enough to satisfy the "inner explorer" in you... it’s truly a Mountain Biker’s dream!

PILA

LA THUILE

At the head of the Aosta Valley, straddling the border with France is La Thuile, a former mining village which is now at the forefront of both winter and summer activities. The La Thuile theatre offers an exciting array of trails catering for all abilities. The La Thuile trails are quite simply epic! An array of trails for all abilities (although some are quite technical and not for the faint-hearted!) mostly derived from ancient natural footpaths, the trails open up kilometre after kilometre of technical almost untouched wilderness. In total there are over 220km of paths to follow, covering a descent of 1400m back down to the village of La Thuile, which essentially means there is good mountain biking for everyone! Also included in the La Thuile lift pass is access to the La Rosière bike park in France... although getting there will require some pedalling!

HOTEL CHEVAL BLANC

HOTEL DUCA D'AOSTA

The Hotel Turin has been popular with our clients for many years, partly thanks to its location just a short walk from the heart of Aosta's lively hustle and bustle. There are cafes, bars and gelaterie on the doorstep and even a colourful twice weekly market behind the hotel. Rooms are comfortable, sleep either 2, 3 or 4 and all feature a TV. Wifi is available in the hotel lounge (small charge payable locally).

The 3* superior HB Aosta has been described as swanky and modern. The stylish rooms all come with a minibar, safe and satellite TV. North facing rooms offer views over the Gran San Bernardo valley, while south facing rooms provide views over the old town and a wonderful Pila panorama. Situated in a quiet street just off the main pedestrianised area which runs through the centre of Aosta, the hotel is just a pleasant 700 metre walk to our bike storage and the gondola. And, after a hard day's riding, the hotel's brand new spa area is bound to prove popular before a relaxing drink at the bar and an evening meal sampling Aosta Valley cuisine. It's looking like THE place to stay in Aosta this summer!

The 4* Hotel Cheval Blanc is a modern, elegant hotel with all the charm and comfort you would expect of a 4* hotel. It is situated on the edge of Aosta, although still within walking distance of the centre, and only a 20 minute walk to and from bike storage. All rooms have private facilities, telephone, minibar and satellite TV. The hotel has a lounge and tranquil bar area, a large meeting room, two attractive restaurants and a lift. Parking is available by arrangement with the hotel. There is also a fitness suite, with a small swimming pool, gym, two saunas and a jacuzzi, which is free of charge to Alpine Revolution clients.

Located in the centre of Aosta and just a short walk from our bike storage, the inside has been totally, and quite stunningly, transformed. Step through the front door and you'll be charmed by retro Italian style, reminiscent of the mid 1900s, whilst the bedrooms are elegant and sophisticated. Think traditional French oak flooring, handcrafted Italian oak furniture, bathrooms in which to luxuriate, minibars, tea/coffee machines, safe, free Wifi and LED satellite TV.
