Triathlon training heaven in the French Alps

Prices vary by length of stay,

Morzine, France, is one of the best places to train for a triathlete—there are many reasons why Olympic triathlon coach Darren Smith chooses it as his squad’s summer base. It has incredible riding (multiple Tour de France-level climbs), trails for running, an outdoor 50-meter pool and a serene lake. You’ll stay in the Tri4theAlps chalet, where you’ll be provided with custom training sessions, airport transfers, and breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. 2015 dates start in June.
