Starting in Modane - The Cycloclimbing Challenges

Nestled in the heart of the Maurienne, Modane is surrounded by six fabulous climbs, three of which - Plan du Lac, Plan d’Aval and Orgère – culminate within or on the edge of the Vanoise National Park.

The road to the Col du Petit Mont Cenis, lined with willow herb and saxifrage, takes you into a haven of peace and quiet with a true high-mountain feel. Modane is also the gateway to the magnificent Col de l’Iseran, made famous by the Tour de France and with breathtaking views.
