More than 21 kilometres separates Riddes from the summit of the Col de la Croix de Cœur. Passing through the mountain resort of La Tzoumaz, you reach the summit of the climb at more than 2,100 metres of altitude where you can admire the view of the resort of Verbier below.
Starting from Riddes, the road heads towards the village of Isérables then turns towards the mountain resort of La Tzoumaz that is part of the 4 Vallées domain. The Dent de Nendaz, the Mont Gond and the Mont Gelé make up the panoramic view that will accompany you during the first kilometres of the climb. As you leave La Tzoumaz, the road begins to wind its way up the mountain with a dozen switchbacks that lead you to the summit of the pass. The last section takes place on an unpaved road that will allow you to reach the top of this open landscape above the Val de Bagnes and the village of Verbier.
