Accidents can happen, but we go through safety checks and procedures before we begin every ride. It makes it safer for you, but also for us, knowing that we all want to enjoy our rides at the best.

At Aosta Valley Freeride we do not only take you around, we love to customize routes based on your skill level, preferences, and aspirations. Whether you’re a beginner seeking scenic trails or an advanced rider craving technical challenges, our team ensures the perfect ride.

Mother Nature gives us the best playground to ride on, but what about the best restaurant to have lunch, a nice break with the tastiest gelato or a a great beer after a long day? Local secrets can be found only with locals!

Continuous Improvement

Riding together with a guide provides you a real-time feedback on your technique, suggesting improvements, and introducing you advanced skills that can take your riding up to the next level.

Overcoming new challenges with the support of a guide can significantly boost your confidence, encouraging you to take on more ambitious trails and elevating your overall enjoyment of the sport.

So, gear up, look ahead and we look forward to ride together!

Had a 3 day trip with 6 friends with AVF. It was a perfect trip, great guide. Great driver. The whole trip was custom made and each day we discussed what trails we would like to ride. I can highly recommend AVF!

Aosta is a spectacular place to ride with endless trails from dramatic ridge top riding to nice flow through the forests. Aosta Valley Freeride is the to group to hire for guiding with as they have top guides and very good bikes to demo. They can also provide shuttle services. I had a great time and hope to come back for more riding.

Aosta Valley Freeride (AVF) really delivered on an amazing expierence.My wife and I planned to do the Grand Tour with AVF and given our different mountain biking ability and what we were looking for AVF created a custom program for us that was perfect. They are very accomidating too. Example of this is that at the last moment our 13 y/o daughter decided to join the trip with changed the program again. AVF was able to create a 5 day ride program for us that allowed all three of us to have a great time.With out AVF we would have been lost and have never been able to figure out the hidden trails. I'm really good at ride planning in most zones but Aosta is HUGE and many of the conecting trails are not on maps, Strava, Trail Forks, etc so you will spend all your time trying to figure out a route and not riding. This is where AVF shines, they took the stress out of the planning and we just rode our bikes and had fun.Our guide Tom was awesome. He is a great person that is fun to ride with...he knows exactly where to go and how to customize trails to meet the needs of the group. He was a great coach for our daughter who was out riding dad on tech stuff by the end of the trip. Tom was able to digest what we wanted and turn that in to a daily ride plan. If you have the opportunity to ride with Tom, you should as he is a great guy and stud on the bike.And finally, The Place, which is a cafe/bike shop/hang out is cool. I wish one would open in Truckee, CA as it's needed. Great spot to start the day with a coffee and end the day with a beer.If you're planning a ride trip to Aosta, book with Aosta Valley Freeride!

The only people to see in the Aosta Valley to ensure you have an amazing time - Some of the best trails I've ever ridden, with incredible service and support from the team. Ask for Lorenzo, an absolute legend guide!! Couldn't ask for a better week of riding in the most incredible terrain, an absolute must do.
