Spectacular itinerary in a setting unique in the world, at the feet of the Mont Blanc mountain range. An easy route, entertaining and fully enjoyable, with an “obligatory” stop in the elegant Courmayeur, absolute tourist capital, location among the most blazoned of the alpine arch. Here you park your bike and have the satisfaction of a walk in the streets of the exclusive historical center, among the shops and upscale locations.
VAL FERRET AND VAL VENY, WHITE SPECTACLE
Just behind Courmayeur you encounter Entrèves, characteristic village. If you think the landscape has been amazing until now, prepare yourself: From here on will leave you literally open-mouthed. Here we have two marvellous valleys, which more or less join to form a single immense shelf in the Mont Blanc group of mountains. The peaks of the mountain range display themselves in all their majesty: The Grandes Jorasses, the Giant’s Tooth, Mont Maudit, the Aiguilles Blanches and Noires, Helbronner Peak, the Tré-Ia-Tète, Aiguilles des Glaciers, up to the 15,780 feet of the Mont Blanc peak. It seems like you can touch them, driving the two splendid roads that travel up through the valley. But if you want to try a truly unforgettable experience, enjoy a breathtaking climb on the Mont Blanc cable car: A stop at the intermediate Pavillon station to discover the Saussurea Alpine Botanical Garden, the highest in Europe, and then on…up to the 11,362 feet of Helbronner Peak, magnificent terrace on the glaciers. Here, considering the temperatures, motorcycling outfits will be particularly useful.
