    After much ascent reached the plane of a col which has majestic peaks to its around. The col itself very easy to not remove protagonism to the landscape. In addition there is a bar restaurant serving you divinely after the hard route.

    Nice ride for a day of arrival to Vars especially in good weather. Quiet and nice place just at the exit of Vars les Claux. The view is splendid.

    Make a stop at the top of the legendary col de Vars is a rare pleasure. Bikers; cyclists, hikers are partying in the middle of this sublime panorama. Surrounded by mountains and greenery, we decided to dive fuck at the edge of a small pond that is the joy of fishermen (can also dine at the refuge Napoléon located in edge of road)

    Easy access for a departure from ballad to 2,000 m of altitude in the summer.

    From a cycling point of view, with access by the Valley of Ubaye, the col de Vars is very interesting for a first approach to the mountain passes. It goes up by levels, first in false flat up to Saint Paul, and then with percentages, interspersed a false light dishes up to 4-5 km of the finish and he ends up with more significant ramps then. The bitumen is impeccable (remade by parties for the recent passage of the Tour de France) and the road is very wide. The col de Vars is probably less characteristic and less difficult than other passes of the Ubaye Valley (Allos, location and Restefond in order of increasing difficulty) but it allows well to legs with of climb on steepest roads

    Not crowded for a pass Summit and not expensive. The Spaghetti Bolognese are hit.
