With its 3 famous 'Cols', internationally renowned Bourg-Saint-Maurice offers the largest number of high Alpine passes in the Tarentaise Valley.
Between the Iseran pass, Petit Saint Bernard and the Cormet de Roseland, cyclists are both challenged by the extraordianary terrain and also discover the beautiful scenery of this upper Iserian valley. These are sublime climbs past lakes,meadows, woodland and small Tarentaise hamlets. Three climbs, Arcs 1800, La Plagnes and Tignes, make even more wonderful days of exceptional road biking.
