    Longer but gentler than the Alpe d’Huez climb, this route might not have the cycling heritage of its neighbour but has all the beauty and charm of its alpine setting and then some.

    In fact, the views are better and the fact the road is effectively a cul de sac going to the small village of la Berarde means there’s very little traffic.

    Very much recommended if staying in or around Bourg d’Oisans.

    a magical place, the silence of the mountain which prepares itself for the rigors of winter, the first snows, the village has lost all its inhabitants, the wild nature has taken back its rights ...

    A quiet climb that takes you away from the often busy valley behind. The climb comes in four parts, a steady first section, a short but steep section before the river, then another steeper section, before flattening out for the last part. The views are spectacular at the end of the valley. You will want to check for possible road closures as after the winter months rockslides can occur.
