  • A slightly shorter route to discover the remarkable climb up to Le Bettex. This is your chance to cross the finish line of the 16th stage of the Tour de France on 15 July 2023!

  • The little sister of the remarkable ascent from Le Fayet, it still requires some effort to manage the climb. After taking the main road towards Megève for around 1 kilometre, turn left towards "Bettex"/"Saint Nicolas de Véroce". A lower gradient for 3 kilometres will take you to "Gollet" in the direction of Le Bettex for this final 4-kilometre section at an average gradient of 9.5%. Once at the top, take the time to look back and admire the scenery.
    For the more courageous, go downhill once...
