5. Pyrenees VIP Experience

Our guests challenged themselves to tackle the featured climbs of the Pyrenees and rode over the finish line of Stage 18 at Hautacam. With 37,800 total feet of climbing on this trip, our guests were up to the challenge and conquered the featured climbs of Col de Val Louron-Azet, Peyragudes, Hautacam, Col du Solour, and Col d´Aubisque. We also watched Stages 17 and 18 from the exclusive Relais Etape hospitality zone with a live broadcast of the race on large-screen TVs, a luxurious lunch, and an open bar. It was the perfect place to watch the Tour de France in style.

4. Etape du Tour

Each year a lucky few get the unique opportunity to experience the Etape du Tour and ride a full stage of the Tour de France mere days before the pros tackle the very same route. It is an epic event designed to celebrate the challenge of some of the most famed Tour routes and to share in the passion that surrounds the Tour de France. This year’s route covered Stage 12, traveling 104 miles, and featured the king of all climbs: Alp d’Huez! Our guests raced like the pros and were fully supported by Trek Travel, enjoying their own private rest stops along the way while on Trek’s award-winning bikes.

3. Alpe d’Huez

From the behind-the-scenes access with Trek-Segafredo to the legendary mountain top finish. Alpe d’Huez continues to amaze year over year. Just days before the peloton conquered this famous climb, our guests were up to the challenge taking on each of the 21-hairpin bends and climbing 3,800 ft of elevation. After making it up to this famous mountaintop, our guests took photos on the summit podium, and basked in the astounding views. Then it was the pro’s turn and our guests got to watch the action unfold with VIP race access.

2. Pedersen wins Stage 13

Mads Pedersen, the former World Champion, sprinted to a huge win for Trek-Segafredo in Stage 13 and secured his first Tour de France victory. Read here about this fantastic finish from Trek-Segafredo!

1. Finale viewing in Paris

Watching the finale from the Automobile Club de France with a glass of champagne in hand is always the perfect way to celebrate another incredible year of the Tour de France. From the astounding views on the Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, to the delectable food and drinks, this luxury event is a favorite of ours to host every year. We also held an exclusive meet and greet with Trek-Segafredo, and some of our guests were able to meet some of their favorite athletes. Our Paris Viewing Event is now ready to book!
