After leaving Verbier, you will have a nice warm-up exploring the Val de Bagnes. The first climb awaits between Orsières and the entrance to the Val Ferret and the pastoral Lake Champex. Before your descent into the valley, you take a detour along the old road towards the Col de la Forclaz to enjoy the view above Martigny and the Rhone Valley. The final climb up Val d’Illiez takes you via Les Giettes towards Champery via an impressive high-mountain road perched along the base of the cliffs of the Dents du Midi.
