Col de la Colombière

One of the nicer road rides accessible from the Chamonix area is climbing Col de la Colombière via Mégève and Col des Aravis. Leave Chamonix through les Houches to avoid the major roadway, then fork right towards Servoz staying left and heading down to Passy. From Passy, climb up to Megeve and turn right at Flumet, up through le Col des Aravis. Go through la Clusaz, Grand Bornand and up the Col de la Colombière. Halfway down to Scionzier, avoid the direct route and make your way up the Col de Romme; and don’t miss the wonderful view on the left as you head into the village! Make sure to start before noon or you’ll be climbing back up to Chamonix in the dark…

Total distance: 172km
