This itinerary takes you through the small villages of Haute Maurienne Vanoise to the highest road pass in Europe: the Iseran, which culminates at 2770 m of altitude!


From Termignon, take the direction of Lanslebourg and the Iseran pass. You will cross the villages of Lanslebourg, Lanslevillard, Bessans and Bonneval-sur-Arc, a classified village and member of the "Most Beautiful Villages of France".

Just after Termignon, the "bario" will be your first difficulty with an average of more than 10% for almost a kilometer. Then, after leaving the village of Lanslevillard, you will be confronted with the rather steep ascent of the Collet de la Madeleine over 3 kilometers. Finally, after about ten kilometers on the flat, and after Bonneval-sur-Arc, you will have to face the slopes of the mythical pass of Iseran. A final ascent which is divided into three very steep segments (between 7 and 10% slope) interspersed with 2 portions with less than 5% slope which will allow you to breathe a little.

At the top, a magnificent panorama awaits you!
