700 km of glorious landscapes from Lake Geneva to the Côte d'Azur, 16 mountain passes at altitudes of between 1,000 and 2,700 m and 4 nature reserves (Vanoise, Écrins, Queyras, Mercantour), etc. But that is only a brief description of this legendary route that passes alongside the lofty alpine peaks. However, to drive the full length of this route you need to prepare well, make sure the weather is in your favour and have a sure command of the gear stick.
Where to sleep : at the hotelF1 in Thonon-Les-Bains and Gap.
• Enjoy a quad break in the Clarée valley between the Écrins and Vanoise.
• At the Serre-Ponçon lake, take a break, have a rest, stroll round the edge or enjoy a swim to admire France's largest artificial lake that nestles between the alpine peaks.
