Col du Petit-Saint-Bernard from Montvalezan

Col du Petit-Saint-Bernard from Montvalezan

A well-graded road leads to the Col du Petit Saint Bernard, at over 2000 m. The climb is lined with kilometre markers and you can time your ascent.
28 km long and including 19 hairpins, this is one of the longest climbs in Savoie Mont Blanc. Fortunately, the gradient is never extreme (average 5%) so it is possible to maintain a reasonable cadence.
The final 8 km from La Rosière to the Franco-Italian border at an altitude of 2188 m can feel very long, so why not have a bite to eat and soak up the “high-mountain” atmosphere of this historic pass before enjoying the exhilarating descent.
