This the ride to Col des Aravis is just fantastic. As you leave La Clusaz the road open up into series of beautifully formed corners.

Once at the summit, there a few restaurants to stop and have a coffee or lunch and take in the fine view. From the summit you can either continue to on to Flumet, or you can head back down to Saint-Jean-de-Sixt and take Col de la Colombiere back down to the flatland.

This is a very popular ride for Geneva riders and can carry some heavy traffic during peak hours. If you can ride it early or late in the day, you will usually be gifted with a unobstructed ride.

We rate this an easy route.
