6. Les Gets, France
Best for: The Full Week’s Holiday.
Mountain Biking is rapidly turning ski resorts into year-round destinations, and nowhere in the world has embraced the principle as tightly as the Portes du Soleil region spanning France and Switzerland. Les Gets, rather than Morzine has somehow emerged as the hub for the summer, so get out there and get your bike on one of those sweet egg-shaped gondolas.
