The Tour de France has already passed through the region on two occasions. In 2020, the World Cycling Championships were to be organised here. Mountain biking has its place with the Trient Valley Tour, the Mont-Chemin course and a downhill route at Dorénaz.
When the sun blends with mountains and vegetation,a ride or walk promises to be very pleasant. The region has gorges and refreshing waterfalls. A diversion from your route will enable you to suddenly discover a mountain lake, a true mirror reflecting sky and vegetation.
