Route de l'Iseran

Highly recommended
Built in 1937, this scenic route provides a superb link between the Tarentaise and the Maurienne. At an altitude of 2 770m, it is the highest point of the Route des Grandes Alpes. It will take you past the Tête du Solaise (2 551m) to the foot of the Belvédère de la Tarentaise (2 528m). The road climbs up to the Col de l'Iseran (2 764m), a stone's throw from the magnificent Pointe des Lessières (3 041m). En route to the resort and old village of Bonneval-sur-Arc, take the time to stop at the Belvédère de la Maurienne.
