The Tour du Queyras is often considered as a must for mountain biking in the Southern Alps.... Skylines and emblematic summits, postcard-perfect high and medium mountain landscapes, bucolic and fluid trails in larch forests or more technical at altitude, an atmosphere that is both peaceful and wild, and varied itineraries that delight riders of all levels. Add to this well looked after accommodation, a well thought out route adapted to the MTB to avoid the need for portages, a local guide who knows the terrain well and well worked out logistics... and you have a comfortable mountain bike itinerary that smells of adventure...
NB: To fully enjoy this trip and as we will have to cross some passes, it is however advised to have a minimum of technical luggage in order to be at ease in any situation. If not, we strongly recommend a "star" trip for a first experience in the Queyras.
