Description

The Queyras is a beautiful valley located in the French Hautes-Alpes bordering Italy, and a prime destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Would you like to explore it on a mountain bike? Then come join me on this great mountain biking weekend!

Covering an area of 65,000 hectares, the Queyras Regional Nature Park is an unspoiled natural area with amazing forests, gorges and mountain lakes. Its has 354 km of cross-country trails surrounded by impressive mountains such as La Taillante, Le Grand Queyras and Le Pain de Sucre.  

On this mountain bike outing, we will ride on the best tracks in the Queyras region. We will cross some gorgeous spots such as the mountain passes of Col Agnel (2,744m) and Col d’Izoard (2,360m). The first one links the Queyras valley (Hautes-Alpes, France) with Pontechianale (Piedmont, Italy), and the second one is frequently included on the famous Tour de France route.  Finally, every afternoon we will come back to our comfortable chalet for some cold beer and delicious food. Additionally, for most of the uphill work we will use the minibus, so we can concentrate on the stunning descents! This program is a perfect option to have fun after a long working week!

So, if you are up for a weekend of amazing mountain biking in Queyras, please contact me. I’ll be glad to take you to some of the best bike routes in Southeast France!

And, if you are looking for a longer mountain bike adventure, take a look at my 6-day trip in the Ecrins.

The Guide did not even know I'am on splitboard. Everyone else was on skis, I was the only one on board. Guide has no experience on board, so the daily trips was designed for skiers, not borders. I would like to know which company is responsible putting me in a ski group, Azimut or Explore-Share? If you don't know the difference between what is doable with skis and splitboards, you would not sell trips for splitboarders! In the only day I could enjoy somehow, I did very hard time to stay on my feet on icy steeps, because I should have had a crampon, but I did not have it, because the list of necessary equipment does not mention it. All the skiers had one. The guide anyway did what he could to help me, all the respect for Rafael. But the whole trip was a fuckup for me that way. I really want to know who is responsible!?

the trip did not correspond program description which forced me to leave on the second day, with huge financial losses. the guide checked and confirmed ny capabilities to ski - indeed after it was failed off road asked me to make a decission to give up. When I asked the agency to organize a transfer at least back to the meeting point (from the middle of nowhere) they pretended they can't do it (indeed, it was included to the program...) the worst every trip in my life. And explore and share instead of any invistigation simply did not care.

Had a great trip. Unfortunately the guide was not fluent in English as written in the description. That is something that could lead to a very tricky situation if there would‘ve been a dangerous situation. The selection of the group by azimut was not the best as at least one person was physically not capable of doing this trip. However, the service by explore-share was great!
