You now come to the Albanais area, marked by curvaceous valleys offering grandiose views of the French Alps. These parts provide a mix of hills, forests and vertiginous gorges. This is certainly one of the stages of the P’tites Routes du Soleil® cycle route with the most ups and downs, taking you through farmland and unspoilt mountains. However, there aren’t any major climbs along this stage, just a series of slopes to tackle one after the other… but overall the stage involves more descents than ascents! Arriving at Albens, you reach the end of the cycle route’s stretch in Haute-Savoie. Make the most of this stage to admire views of France’s northern Alpine summits.
