Description

Ubaye is a region definitely worth of a visit in the French Alps. Located between Mercantour, Queyras and Val Maïra, this site will provide the ground for great adventures!

It's in fact a wild region, and the landscapes are breathtaking. The Chambeyron is the main massif, with beautiful rocks and large slopes. But the terrain is much more varied than that!

A unique stay far from the crowded ski resorts, but with a warm welcome and delicious food. Indeed, ski touring in Ubaye means loving adventures. You will often feel like you are one of the first people to explore this land. Besides, the region is quite sunny, making our days even more enjoyable.

I have already planned some trips that you will find below. But if you want, I can also organize the trip in a different date.

Do you want to discover everything that Ubaye has to offer? Then please contact me and let's set a date!

I also offer many other ski touring trips, for example in Vanoise, in the Po Valley or the Queyras Valley.
