Some Etape du Tour history

The first Etape was in 1993. There is now an international series of Etape du Tour events all over the world - L’Étape by Tour de France.

Pau in the Pyrenees has been visited by the Etape du Tour most often but the last time the Etape du Tour took place in the Pyrenees was in 2014. The organisers have chosen the Alps due to its commercial success the last few years.

The longest Etape was in 2011 from Issoire to St Flour. A few years there were two Etapes per year; one in the Alps and one in the Pyrenees.


The 31st edition of the "Étape du Tour de France" took place on the 9th of July 2023 following the stage 14 route of the Tour de France, between Annemasse and Morzine. This years Etape covers 157km and 4100m of elevation gain. In one big day out, you’ll tick-off some exquisite high-mountain passes like Col de Cou, Col de Feu, Col de la Ramaz, finishing it all off on the iconic Col de Joux Plane.

2020 and 2021

The 2020 and 2021 editions did not take place due to the Covid 19 epidemic.
