Route des Grandes Alpes

This mountain route between the Mediterranean and the shores of Lake Geneva was opened by the French President in 1934. It embraces the entire French Alpes and includes 17 of the highest passes along the way. It's open to trafic between June and October, but even in September, we could not cross one of the passes because of snow. We stayed on 5 locations during the 12 day journey (about 700 km.) in order to get time for walking in the mountains, which we had pretty much every day with only one day of rain
