Vercors Rundtour von Autrans via Pont en Royans und Combe Laval
Combe Laval RP 8
THE VERCORS - Breathtaking scenery guaranteed
-------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------
The Vercors is a high plateau criss-crossed by deep valleys (calcareous plateau) west of the French Alps. It is also the largest national park in France. The originality / virginity of the landscape is omnipresent and almost physically palpable. The "cruising" through the Vercors has almost a meditative character. In every valley, after every bend, the unexpected awaits you, the numerous and diverse sceneries are almost unbelievable.
Keep your camera ready at all times and make sure you have time for several short stops - it's worth it!

Hightlight: PONT-EN-ROYANS
And suddenly there is this Pont-en-Royans built into the rocks. As if out of nowhere, after passing through a bottleneck in the Bourne Gorge, the town suddenly lies (or better hangs) in front of you.
A longer stop (ideally with overnight) can only be recommended. Not a few use the rest to drive again some sections of the Bourne Gorge. But also Pont-en-Royans has a lot to offer culturally and also for the appropriate physical well-being is provided for each / woman.

Highlight: COMBE LAVAL
For tour riders, probably the most famous stretch of track in the Vercors. Although only a few kilometers (about 3km) long, this is carved into the rock passage, almost a myth. Before, as well as in the section, there are numerous possibilities for photos. If you follow the road to the other side of the gorge, you have a direct view of the rock ledge of the Combe Laval.

Since we arrived with the van / camper, we opted for the local campsite in Autrans.
The place is clean, well furnished and the staff was very friendly.

The general road condition is good to very good, a quiet and safe ride is nothing in the way. The round trip is suitable for relaxed "enjoyment cruising" in a varied scenery with outstanding highlights. The route can be driven by all types of drivers (solo or with social / passenger).

Due to the generally good road condition and the impressive scenery, I rate this round trip with 3 stars.

About this region
Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (ARA; French: [ovɛʁɲ ʁon‿alp] (listen); Arpitan: Ôvèrgne-Rôno-Ârpes; Occitan: Auvèrnhe Ròse Aups; Italian: Alvernia-Rodano-Alpi) is a region in southeast-central France created by the 2014 territorial reform of French regions; it resulted from the merger of Auvergne and Rhône-Alpes. The new region came into effect on 1 January 2016, after the regional elections in December 2015.The region covers an area of 69,711 km2 (26,916 sq mi), making it the third largest in metropolitan France; it had a population of 7,948,287 in 2017, second to Île-de-France. It consists of twelve departments and one territorial collectivity (Lyon Metropolis) with Lyon as the prefecture. This new region combines diverse geographical, sociological, economic and cultural regions, which was already true of Rhône-Alpes, as well as Auvergne, to a lesser extent. While the old Rhône-Alpes and Auvergne regions each enjoyed a unity defined by axes of communication and the pull of their respective metropoles, the new combination is heterogeneous; it sustained lively opposition from some local officials after its creation.
