  • The legendary col du galibier is well known to cyclists. The place is more than 2600 metres. Do you cover. A snow shower can happen quickly. The road leading to the neck is narrow and parking is not very big. It is best to park your vehicle at the level of the tunnel if you want to go hiking.

  • A great step, the lunar landscape is amazing and the view from the top is amazing. One of the highest passes in Europe, since it reaches 2645 mt. The way to go in motion alone is worth the pain.

  • I'm with the car gone up just for the view. and it's fine to do, if you want to go with the car up on a quiet day or time so you can park your car and up to the viewpoint can run some slightly higher. just after the top is a little restaurant/gift shop where you can drink and eat and what local mountain water brewed beers can pick up, fun as gift for the home front.
