39 - Tour des Albiez

This exceptional circuit begins with the climb to Albiez-le-Jeune, which includes over 40 hairpins! It continues below the Aiguilles d’Arves and finishes with a steep descent through the Combe des Moulins - where the famous Opinel knife was born.

This circuit is nothing other than the combination of routes 17A and 17B. It can be done in both ways.
