A challenging, little known climb, on quiet roads. Sandwiched between Col du Galibier and Col de la Croix de Fer. In summer, bring a mountain bike and go even higher.


The other weekend Doreen and I went to Val d’Isère to cycle Col de l’Iseran the highest paved mountain pass in Europe – and definitely one of the most beautiful.

The Mauriennne Valley is full of many of the biggest and most famous climbs in France – see here – but there are also many other lessor known gems that shouldn’t be ignored.
