The race sets off in Prades, France. Almost without delay the route goes uphill and 31.5 kilometres into the stage the riders crest Col de la Perche. The peak lies at an elevation of 1,560 metres, while the last 12 kilometres of the climb are averaging 3.7%.

In a long descent the riders land on Spanish soil for the first time in the 2017 Vuelta. Shortly after passing through Seo d’Urgell with 114.2 kilometres done the riders hit the first slopes of the Coll de la Rabassa. The 13.2 kilometres climb is averaging 6.9% with a steepest ramp of 15.5%. At an elevation of 1,820 metres, the top is crested 127.5 kilometres into the race. By now the Vuelta is in Andorra.

The last challenge is the Alto de la Comella, a 4.3 kilometres climb at 8.3%. The steepest sector of 12% is 800 metres before the top. Once above, a flying 7.1 kilometres drop leads to the line in Andorra la Vella.
