Challenging yet incredibly diverse, the route starts from Pont Saint Martin and after crossing the characteristic Roman bridge of Pont-Saint-Martin, ascends the steep mountainside through vineyards to the sanctuary of Madonna della Guardia.

From there, the view stretches over the entrance to the Aosta Valley and the Canavese plain (Piedmont).

After a steep ascent and subsequent descent, we pass through the beautiful village of Perloz, followed by a steep descent over the Lys torrent on the daring Pont Morettaz.

Now begins the long ascent to reach Rifugio Coda, the final stretch on the watershed with Piedmont, offering a spectacular view of the Piedmontese plain. We then cross into the Piedmontese side before returning to the Aosta Valley. The steep descent leads us into the Mont Mars Reserve.

This section is very challenging due to the wild environment and the rugged terrain. It's a series of ups and downs passing through very characteristic places like Rifugio Barma, Lago Chiaro, and Crenna dou Leui (from where you can finally admire the massive Monte Rosa in all its majesty) until we finally arrive at Niel: a beautiful village where you can admire the experience of local masons in building their houses.
