The Tour de France will return to Morzine in 2023

In addition, the Etape du Tour will also take place in Morzine next year…

Next year (2023) the Tour de France will return to Morzine for the 22nd time. Earlier this year, the peloton spent a well-earned rest day in Morzine on 11 July 2022, before departing on 12 July 2022 to complete the 10th stage, towards Megève.

The 110th Tour de France will take place in 2023, and Morzine will host a stage finish on 15 July 2023 after the riders have completed a gruelling route from Annamasse that comprises climbing two passes around the resort: the col de la Ramaz and the renowned col de Joux Plane.

In addition, just six days before the tour arrives in Morzine on 15 July 2023, amateur cyclists will have the chance to ride the exact same stage as the professionals, in the Etape du Tour event. The Etape du Tour gives amateur riders the opportunity to ride one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France, with the same stage towns, the same roads, the same mythical climbs, and also the same conditions as the Tour (the roads are entirely closed to traffic). Morzine last hosted an Etape du Tour in 2016, and is now preparing for 16,000 cyclists to attempt this challenge on 9 July 2023.

Morzine has been picked for these two prestigious events again due to the quality of hotels, the 1,000 metres altitude, great roads, and exciting climbs.

Georges Coquillard, Président de l’Office de Tourisme, says: “It’s very unusual to host the Tour de France two years in a row, so we’re incredibly proud that it’s returning to Morzine again in 2023, and this time with the Etape du Tour as well. With 25 cols within 50 km, Morzine is the perfect spot to ride!”.

Fabian Trombert, Maire de Morzine, says: “What a joy to discover Morzine on the route of the 110th edition of the Tour! We have the privilege to welcome it for the second year in the row, making it the 22nd time the riders are in our village. A unique history in the Haute-Savoie showing the strong links between the Tour de France and Morzine.After the success of the depart in 2022, Morzine will host a finish, for an even greater spectacle!”.
