Town:

A beautiful glacial valley following the course of the river Arc, surrounded by impressive Alpine peaks. The valley starts at the confluence of the Arc and the Isere river 40km east of Chambery and ends on the Italian boarder to the east. The area has great links with motorway and trail lines running the length of the valley and on via tunnel into Italy .

The main towns are Saint Jean de Maurienne, Saint Michelle de Maurienne at the lower end of the valley and Modane at the top of the valley.

Biking:

The region know as the Maurienne valley is quoted as the ‘Worlds Largest cycling area. The snow capped peaks which tower on both sides of the valley offer the road cyclist some of the most challenging, breathtaking and rewarding routes.

At the far end of the valley forming the link to the Isere valley, is the world famous Col d’Isarean, which at 2770 meters is the highest paved mountain pass in the Alps.

The south exposed side of La Madaleine is a short but sharp climb ideal for cooler days when the sun is not to hot.

Such is the reputation of the area, that the region will host three stages of the 2015 Tour de France, using the Col du Glandon, La Croix de Fer, La Télégraph and the Col du Galibier.

However the region boasts much more than just the big names. The 18 tight vertigo inducing hairpin bends of the Lacets de Montvernier , built up a seemingly unsalable cliff need to be seen to be believed. The lower sections of the valley are littered with tiny villages, meadows of Alpine flowers and glacial streams all linked together by a network of deserted roads to explore.
