Great Alps route
A legendary trail for a unique adventure!
Unveiled in 1937, the Route des Grandes Alpes (Great Alps Route) is the most beautiful of mountain hiking trails. It runs from Thonon-les-Bains to Menton, from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean, is 684 km long and includes 16 passes, among the highest in the French Alpine massif: six of them culminate above 2,000 metres. The trail guides car drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, touring cyclists (and sometimes even … intrepid ramblers!) through a land whose natural and cultural heritage is exceptional.
