For a Triathlon Training holiday in the French Alps it is rare to find such a great mix of Triathlon training terrain in such a close environment. Here's a summary of what you can enjoy:
And all of this is available within close proximity to Chalet Falcon and Samoens.
We have had many Triathletes who have stayed with us to mix a training week with their main summer holiday. Because Chris is an active Triathlete we take great enjoyment helping plan training sessions, providing route advice and creating an ambiance that is beneficial to guests wanting an active break. Whilst this isn’t an organised Training Camp as such (there is no official Coach) it does provide the environment, terrain and weather to combine quality training in all disciplines and is suitable for all distances from sprint to Olympic to Ironman.
Samoens also makes for a great summer holiday destination in it’s own right, so if you wanted to holiday with a partner or your family we can also guarantee them an outstanding time too. Take a look at our main Summer Holiday page for more information or drop us an e-mail if you want more information on what is available in and around Samoens
There are several Triathlons in the local area, generally covering both Sprint and Olympic distances.
One of Europe’s most spectacular Triathlons takes place every year on the last Sunday in August. Based at Lac Passey, the Mont Blanc Triathlon is an Olympic distance event with few rivals. Don’t expect to set a Personal Best as the bike includes 440m of ascent, but for a never-to-forget experience it’s hard to beat. (If you look closely at the 2009, 2010 and 2011 results you’ll see your chalet host Chris in the Olympic distance race).
