Today you climb the Iseran pass which culminates at an altitude of 2770m. It is the highest road mountain pass of all the Alps. Weather conditions are often capricious, even in summer! During the 2019 edition of the Tour de France, it was on the descent to Val d’Isère that the race organization had neutralized the stage due to a mud slide.

From there, a panoramic view offers itself to you, allowing you to see the Mont Blanc on one side, the glaciers and eternal snows of the Écrins massif on the other. The long descent leads us to Briançon via the Col du Lautaret.
