Col de la Forclaz, Lake Annecy

The ultimate challenge for cycling enthusiasts!

This famous Tour de France route can be completed from 2 sides; Menthon-Saint Bernard or from the village of Vesonne. From Menthon-Saint-Bernard, the ascent of 8 kilometres takes you to the top of Col de la Forclaz on an average grade of 6.5% with some stretches reaching 12.5%. Once you make it to the top, the views over lake Annecy will take your breath away and will have made it well worth the effort! If you fancy it, stop off in one of the bars at the top, perfect for watching the paragliders and hang-gliders taking off.
