Col de la Colombière (elevation 1613 m) is a mountain pass in the Alps in the department of Haute-Savoie in France. It connects Cluses in the Arve valley with Le Grand-Bornand in the Bourne valley. The road then leads further to Annecy or over Col des Aravis to the Arly valley and is situated between the Massif des Bornes to the north-west and the Chaîne des Aravis to the south-east. The pass was first included in the Tour de France in 1960 and has since featured 22 times, most recently in 2018. You ride through beautiful surroundings. About half-way there is an easier part, but save some energy for the last kilometer, as it gets steeper to the top.
