You will then go back down to Albertville to return to Coeur de Tarentaise.
Distance : 226 Km
Time: The day
For a busy day, this itinerary will make you admire the Tarentaise from the top of the Col de la Madeleine, will take you through the magnificent village of Bonneval sur Arc and you will come back through the sublime Iseran pass.
Distance : 80 Kilometers
Time: 2 h00
With its road that will take you up to 2300m and its 170 bends over 38 km, this route is not the longest, but it will allow you to see a summary of the Tarentaise. The Tour de France made it its last stage in 2019 for a good reason, a sublime road that twists and turns between typical chalets, torrents and high summits.
Take the opportunity to climb to 3200m and dominate the Tarentaise effortlessly thanks to the Caron cable car.
