Val-Cenis - Termignon

No real difficulty, although the return trip to Termignon is a little challenging on the legs. Take your time, set a steady pace and enjoy a rest at the panoramic viewpoint near the Balmes cave.


The ride to Sollières is easy and mostly downhill, but the return trip will get the leg muscles working hard as you climb the pleasant forest track. The final descent to Termignon presents no technical difficulty. But first, take the time to admire the panoramic view over the valley and Vanoise mountains and the picturesque scenery from the Balmes cave lookout point.
