Alps Maritime: Madone d’Utelle + Col de la Colmiane

2023-07-09, 15:25



Finally, the Alps! After a longer break, I am returning to areas farther away from the sea, but still close to it – the mountains exceeding 1500m in height are already free from snow, and the temperature up on the mountain is almost identical to that at the beach. It’s a great time to explore these wild and almost completely forgotten places by people!

This time, I went to Madone d’Utelle and Col de la Colmiane – which amounted to a little over 140km and 3000 meters in elevation. It was a wonderful trip – I invite you to read the report and learn some interesting facts about the route. See you in the next episodes and on the French Riviera!
