Atlas Ride Co has been offering MTB day trips from Morzine to surrounding resorts for nearly a decade now. We hold our own transport licence and run a fleet of VW Caravelle vans with Burtech trailers. Our professional drivers will meet you at your accommodation in Morzine and drive you safely to your destination. They might even go for a shred with you and point out some of the best trails. If you would like a local guide for any destination please just ask, we know local guides in each spot!
Morzine has some of the best mountain biking in the world with its vast 650 km of trails spread out over 8 resorts connected by 24 lifts over two countries with 50+ official downhill tracks and an 80 km Enduro loop, sometimes it's nice to break up the week with a visit to another resort.
We run our day trips Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with other days available on request. If you would like to book a trip to a location on a day scheduled for another location, please send us an enquiry and if we have the demand or you will be booking the whole van, we can look at changing to a destination that day.

Some firm favourites for a day trip away from Morzine are definitely Pila and La Thuile in Italy, Everything is better in Italy! There are many options however and it all depends on what terrain your group wants to ride;

Pila Bike Park, Italy
Pila was the first resort in the Aosta Valley to build a downhill track, located just 30 minutes through the Mt Blanc tunnel this one is a must. There are now some serious tracks here from the World Cup track to the European IXS track. Go to Pila, It’s rad.
La Thuile is the go to destination for Enduro riding in the Alps
La Thuile - this place is the go to destination in the Italian Alps for natural Enduro mountain biking. This is no place for a beginner though with two blue flow trails and the rest graded red and black. The natural nature of the trails mean many of the reds would border on black in other parks.
NEED THE BIKE PARK FIX AWAY FROM SUPER MORZINE? BERNEX!
40 minutes from Morzine lies Bernex, a gem of a bike park packed full of features where you're guaranteed to find flow. While it's not huge, it will keep you occupied for a full day learning all the different lines and transitions.
As close as you'll come to riding Vinny-T's home trails, this is a must do if you are looking for the mid week get away from Morzine to explore somewhere new.
Samoens. A quiet trail bike gem in the Haute Savoie
We've been riding this little tucked away resort for several years, it's found at the base of the Grand Massif ski area. A village packed full of character and charm, it's relaxed mountain vibe tells little of the incredible, growing network of trails found in the mountains surrounding it.
Morgins the hidden gem of the PDS *Closed for 2023*
Morgins is a legendary resort in the bike world. Built and maintained by the same crew that work on Champery around the corner, Morgins is one of the best built bike parks in Europe. It's certainly the one of the wildest, though it's tiny, what is here is sure to get the adrenaline pumping.
Big, bold and beautiful riding
Steep, technical and a lot of fun
