Bellevarde is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.783m (9,130ft) 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 June. Great trail for experienced wheelers. At the summit there's a communication tower. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. It’s one of the highest roads of the country. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. The summit offers great views of the Parc National de la Vanoise and the surrounding area.
