Active Pack Terms

All of our holidays come with a FREE Active Pack for your week away*. Activities vary by resort, please read our terms below

Bike Hire

Our inclusive bike hire is for 3 consecutive days and these days will be allocated on arrival. Either Mon-Wed or Thur-Sat. The bike included is a Specialized Hardrock, 2012-14 model (or similar). A classic, good quality light weight mountain bike with a long travel front fork. A Road bike can be provided instead of a Mountain bike for Morzine and Les Gets, but subject to availability.

Upgrade to a full week!

You may upgrade your 3 days FREE hire to a full week for only £49 to £59. To do so please visit the ‘booking-confirmation’ link detailed above or email admin@alpineelements.co.uk.

Bike hire and Activities Disclaimer

You will be asked to read and sign a Bike hire and Activities Disclaimer on arrival in resort. A copy of this document is attached to your Welcome email, or available to read on the ‘booking-confirmation’ link detailed above. We will ask that €100 is blocked on your c/card as a deposit for use of our bikes.

Hire Bikes, allowable use & damage

Our standard (FREE) hire bikes are only allowed to be used on Valley floor trails and Green or Blue trails. Guests will be charged if there is any evidence of use on harder trails. Mechanics are available to make good any running repairs or minor accidental damage, but you will be asked to pay for damage which is attributed to abnormal ‘wear and tear’. Or for damage that is sustained to our standard (hard tail) hire bikes for use which is not allowed. If you would like to use the high mountain trails and more difficult trails then please rent a Pro bike from us with dual suspension and hydraulic brakes. You may of course bring your own on the flight for a carriage charge of £75 (easyjet). Please refer to the ‘booking-confirmation’ link below

Activities provided within Active Packs, or sold separately on arrival.

Any Activities such as Climbing, White Water Rafting, Canyoning (etc) that form part of our complimentary Active Packs or bought locally from our Reps will be held on a set days of the week and may be replaced by other activities in the unlikely event of non-availability. Children may be offered an alternative activity, but not necessarily of equivalent value if they are deemed too small to participate.

All the Activities described above (with the exception of Bike Hire) are run by third party suppliers for whom Alpine Elements act as an Agent. Their Terms and Conditions will apply. As such, these Activities such as White Water Rafting, Canyoning, Climbing will not form part of your package holiday contract with us. We advise that you request a copy of the supplier’s Terms & Conditions on arrival from your host or hotel reception if you wish to clarify the legal terms applicable to the contract governing the excursion.

Multi Activity Pass

All Multi Activity Passes or Sport Tignes passes are supplied by the resort’s respective Tourist Offices, and subject to their Terms and Conditions. These passes will not form part of your package holiday contract with us. We advise that you request a copy of the supplier’s Terms & Conditions on arrival from your host or hotel reception for the Multipass or Sportignes pass. Alternatively do look on line at the respective Tourist Offices website where these Terms are displayed.

FREE Active Pack Terms

To receive your FREE Active Pack in resort you must book one via the ‘booking-confirmation’ link or Client Area link that we send you after booking. We regret that we cannot supply any Active Packs unless this form is completed and our Terms & Conditions agreed prior to departure. Our Active Packs are complimentary packages of activities which we offer for no extra charge. On booking an Active Pack you agree to our special Active Pack Terms. The components will vary from resort to resort.

Please appreciate that we illustrate activity prices, photos and descriptions, (including minimum age of participants), in good faith and as a guide only. Activities are run by third party suppliers and for this reason your contract will reside with the supplier. We can obtain copies of their Contractual Terms on arrival in resort if you ask your Alpine Elements host or Rep

Active Packs are for our weekly guests only, staying in our Club Hotels and Chalets. 

* For Holidays to Val d'isere where a Premium Active Pack is provided: Not all of the activities detailed as 'FREE' above are in fact free. A choice of two activities are free plus free walking or biking guides. For holidays to the MTB Ridge Hotel a free Active Pack is not provided.
