This itinerary starts in Orsières, the main village of the eponymous commune. It leaves in the direction of Champex-Lac and ends in front of the chairlift.
This beautiful and very regular climb with its 6 hairpin bends allows you to gain height to better admire the Val Ferret, the Val d’Entremont and the Combins massif before reaching the charming lake resort of Champex-Lac.
Best period to go there
Champex-Lac can also be reached by bike from the west by climbing from Bovernier. A longer, harder and more irregular fire climb than on the Orsières side!
