Alpine passes of the Tour de France

Alp d'Huez, Col de Galibier, Croix de Fer .... sensational passes in the footsteps of the

professionals!

They sound like music in the ears of roadbike cyclists. In the mountains most of the time the victory of the Tour de France is held, many funny decorations in the places await us as well as the inscriptions on the asphalt accompany and through the beautiful, spectacular landscape of the French Alps. Lush meadows, clear mountain streams and breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks combine with the hospitality and culinary delights of the French. A beautiful round trip with lasting impressions awaits you. Day 1: Arrival by bus from Garmisch - Switzerland - boarding possibilities Day 2: 57 km - 1960 m acent optional 81 km - 2990 m acsent Our first pass, the Cormet de Roselend, is fantastically beautiful in the face of Mont Blanc, through blooming meadows to Lac de Roselend where we fortify ourselves with a delicious French lunch. If you feel fit enough, you can build a beautiful loop to the Col de Saises. Here is a group splitting possible. Another fantastic pass we have installed today, the Col Mérailet. Day 3: 78 km 2380 m ascent oday, the Col d'Iseran is on the program, fantastically beautiful along a reservoir we screw up the pass up to 2764 m. This is the highest passable pass in the Alps. A small restaurant invites you for a leisurely break before we head to the valley. Day 4: 98 km - 2620 m ascent Slight curling until we turn left to the Col du Télégraphe, the landscape becomes high alpine and we reach the Col du Galibier, the absolute highlight of the Tour de France passes. On the tarmac we drive over the inscriptions and cheers of the fans of the Tour de France. We drive over the Col de Lautaret, it is only downhill to the hotel where we relax afterwards and enjoy the good French cuisine in the evening. Day 5: 50 km - 1940 m ascent optional 72 km - 2590 m ascent Alp d'Huez, only the name suggests many fights that have been fought there think. As fast as Pantani we will not crank up, but the flair of the Tour de France makes us powerful legs. It is the 21 serpentines and the most legendary climbing in the Alps. If you have not had enough, you can take us to Les Deux Alpes, the ski resort has been the stage destination of the Tour de France several times. Day 6:79 km - 2000 m ascent Today is a secret, we drive deep into the Massif de Ecrins and eat lunch under impressive glaciers. In the afternoon there are 600 hm to the Col d'Ornon, or regenerate, stroll and chill in Bourg d'Oisans. Day 7: 66 km - 1740 m ascent opt. 80 km - 2210 m ascent Col de Glandon, a real gem of the French Alpine passes, we leave the valley of Romance, the air freshens up and we reach a magical reservoir, where we continue to the pass where we turn right and cross the Croix de Fer (Iron Cross) reach. A great departure awaits us. Even today, there is the option to make a few extra meters in altitude. Day 8: 55 km - 1720 m ascent The Col de la Madeleine was previously 26 times in the program of the Tour de France. We reach the top of the pass, it sounds typical French accordion music from the restaurant, where we can hopefully enjoy on the terrace typical of the country kitchen.
