The Queyras Valley is located in the Hautes-Alpes in Southeast France, bordering Italy. This destination is popular among outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. Join me and let’s explore this fabulous region on a mountain bike!

Covering an area of 65,000 hectares, the Queyras Regional Nature Park is a breathtaking place with amazing forests, gorges and mountain lakes. It offers lots of cross-country trails surrounded by impressive peaks such as La Taillante, Le Grand Queyras and Le Pain de Sucre.  

On this 6-day mountain bike trip we will ride on the best tracks in the Queyras region. We will cross some gorgeous spots such as the mountain passes of Col d’Izoard and Col Fromage, and the villages of Saint Véran, Ceillac and Aiguille.  At the end of each day, we will enjoy some local food and rest in comfortable gites. You can check the complete itinerary below!
