Le Queyras, designated as a protected 'Parc regional,' is committed to sustainability and authenticity. Revel in a breathtaking scenery marked by diverse geology and genuine mountain villages, far away from mass tourism. In this region, ski lifts are almost absent, with the occasional uplift for elevation gain, but predominantly relying on good old leg power. Each day involves ascending between 1000 and 1500m, navigating roads, 4x4 paths, and singletracks. At times, there might be some bike pushing or a hike-a-bike section to reach the highest points. The rewards, are truly gratifying—picture conquering peaks up to 3000m, cruising along spectacular singletracks through alpine meadows, gliding through larch tree forests, and concluding each day in another charming mountain village with a beer, dinner, and a restful night's sleep.
We extend a warm welcome to you on Sunday at the hotel in Guillestre, where we will spend the first night of our adventure. On Monday, our bike journey kicks off with a lift from the hotel to the village of Ceillac, to start our adventure. Over the course of six days, we'll ride a point-to-point bike mountain bike tour around the Queyras, conquering various cols and peaks while navigating incredible trails amidst the breathtaking autumn scenery.
Every night we sleep at a different location, varying from a cosy chambre d'hôte to a remote mountain hut. Dinner and breakfast are included and for lunch you can order a pack lunch or visit the local bakery (if there is one...). On Saturday we are riding back down to the valley, for a last night in a hotel to head home on Saturday.

To enjoy this week at it's best, you need to have experience with riding alpine singletracks, you need to be fit to cover 1500m of climbing (and descending). We recommand you bringing a (full suspension) allmountain/enduro bike with 140-150mm of travel.
