Road bike the Col de l’Iseran
PictureThis famous route up to 2,764m will take cyclists up the highest pass in the Alps. It is not too difficult as the gradient eases with altitude, and some “holiday bikers” even do the climb on hybrid mountain bikes. Guests start from our hotel, distance is 17km, to the top, and the gradient eases with altitude. We recommend using our Specialized Road bikes!
