Col de Fresse

Col de Fresse

Col de Fresse is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.777m (9,110ft) above the sea level, located in the Savoie department, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps. It's one of the highest roads of Europe.

The road to the summit, located within the Vanoise National Park, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s impassable from October to May. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. It’s one of the highest roads of the country. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. At the summit there's a lift for skiers called Borsat Express. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road.
