Our short trip to the Vosges has become a tradition: 2018 will be the fifth time that we've met up in Wintzfelden in Alsace, to enjoy four great days in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere far from the madding crowd. Ballons and cols – the Vosges offers striking mountains, long climbs, breathtaking views and untamed low mountain scenery. For this edition we’ve slightly changed the routes again, so that even repeat participants can explore something new. 

Unchanged, of course, is our charming hotel in tranquil surroundings and the varied Vosges scenery. These guarantee us good physical challenges and plenty of chance to enjoy typical Alsatian savoir vivre.

Your May Bank Holiday weekend with Epic Climbs.

Due to the demand in 2018 we're organising two weekends: the same short trip will be hosted at June Bank Holiday (31.5. to 3.6. 2018).
