Starting from Vionnaz, set off on your climb in the direction of Torgon through the vineyards. Continue your ascent with several hairpin bends alongside open meadows before coming to a shadier section on the edge of the forest. At 12.8 kilometres long with an ascent of 760 metres, this route provides a steady climb with a moderate gradient between Vionnaz and Reveleuraz. A short downhill stretch lets you catch your breath before a steeper section takes you to the village of Torgon, offering a sublime panorama of the Vaud Alps and Lake Geneva. Continue along a gentler slope as you leave Torgon, where the route takes a detour via the La Jorette complex – the location of the finish line for the Tour de Romandie’s mountain stage in 2019. Return to the valley along the same route in the opposite direction.
