Description

Situated in the Hautes Alpes department, in the French region of Provence, Queyras Regional Natural Park is a protected area that offers incredible landscapes and hiking areas. I invite you to enjoy a wonderful adventure in this park for 8 days.

On this opportunity, we’ll take the Grande Randonné trail that covers a large section of the park and will allow us to discover several attractive spots. During this 8-day activity, we’ll cross different communes and visit the local mountain huts. Furthermore, while hiking in the French Alps, I’ll teach you about the geological formation of the range and we’ll have the chance to contemplate the local flora and fauna. At the bottom of the page, you can take a look at a detailed description of the itinerary.

Please, keep in mind that this program is for experienced hikers with a very good level of fitness. As for the trip dates, you can book a group program or you can join a private tour with flexible dates.

So, would you like to take part of this hike in the Queyras Regional Natural Park? Then, all you have to do is send the request and make your reservation. I’m sure you’ll love this area!

Another option in France could be this hiking program that I lead to the Cantal Volcanoes, in Auvergne. Check it out!

Super randonnée en famille avec Sarah, une accompagnatrice extra, ayant mille tours dans son sac pour motiver et amuser les plus jeunes. En plus de l’excellente ambiance, nous avons eu la chance de voir des paysages magnifiques sur le Valais. Et puis quel plaisir de passer une nuit en refuge avec ses enfants. Merci Sarah, nous reviendrons !
