• First time in its history for hosting a start in the Tour de France – July 16
  • Hosts of the Mountain Bike World Cup Downhill and Cross Country events in September
  • New barefoot walk through the peat bogs of the Chablais UNESCO Global Geopark
  • New four season toboggan ride launches

The mountain town of Les Gets, an hour’s drive from Geneva Airport, has a number of events and activities taking place throughout the summer, including a start of the 15th stage of the Tour de France – the first start in the town’s history. The Mountain Bike World Cup takes place from September 6-10 in the resort and in-between there’s a number of other events including music, sport and arts festivals.

A new four season toboggan run is opening with a 714-metre descent that takes almost 6 minutes that expands the resorts strategy to offer all-year-round activities to a wide demographic and compliments the existing Alta Lumina Park.

There’s also a new barefoot walk through the peat bogs of the Chablais UNESCO Global Geopark – water-saturated land where visitors can feel the mass of energy accumulated since the last ice age. Les Gets is teeming with these little-known, multi-faceted wetland areas and sensitive peat bog ecosystems.
