The short, steep route leads along the thousand-year-old pass route through a rugged mountain landscape. The alpine flora and beautiful mountain lakes compensate for the harsh climate. The route ends just before the Italian border on the Great St. Bernard, the breeding site of the famous rescue dogs.
