Col des Aravis-southeast

Profile Col des Aravis-southeast

The Col des Aravis is popular among car drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists, partly because it is one of the cols of the Route des Grandes Alpes. Maybe tourists also visit this pass because it offers impressive views of the peaks of the Mont Blanc massif, at least when the famous mountain is not hiding behind clouds. Due to its popularity, the pass itself is quite hectic with many restaurants and shops. This ascent begins in Flumet at the beautiful bridge over the Arly. The road is moderately steep (6-7%) for the first one and a half kilometers. This is followed by three kilometers, in which the road runs almost horizontally. A kilometer before La Giettaz the road starts to rise again considerably. This then remains the case over the remaining seven kilometers (mostly 6-8%). The steepest kilometer (7.9%) starts in the center of La Giettaz.
