’Highest pass of the Alps.’
With 2770 m the Col de l'Iseran is the highest road pass of the Alps, connecting the Tarentaise in the north with the Maurienne in the south. Being a curvy and narrow road, having fabulous views over the snow covered giants of Vanoise and Gran Paradiso, it is a favorite with motorbikers. The Iseran Pass is one of 16 passes in the famous Route des Grandes Alpes. Photo Paul Smit.
