    The Col de l'Iseran is with 2,764 meters the highest alpine pass ever. And that is exactly what makes it unique: While you are surrounded on many other passes by high peaks, you seem to be on the Col de l'Iseran already at eye level with them. The approach on the north side makes fun only from Val d'Isère. Because up to the ski resort, the road is quite busy. Naturally, ski tourism has also left its mark on the landscape.

    Highest Alpine crossing - if you do not count the bonus loop on the Bonette or Trails ;-)

    Fantastically beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Especially the driveway of Lanslebourg offers unforgettable views of the glaciers of the French Alps.
    Fortunately, the restaurant was open and I was able to enjoy my usual French cafe as a reward for the ascent.
