"BALCONS DU QUEYRAS"
OUR SELECTION OF EASY EMTB RIDES 100% EBIKE FOR YOUR NEXT EBIKE HOLIDAYS
The first EBIKE HOLIDAYS we organized in the Alps for people who wanted to discover the EMTB rides of Queyras!
5 full days of easy EMTB riding, to check out the area with your local guide on one of the most beautiful routes in the Queyras. Accessible to riders of all levels of fitness and ability, this tour condenses all the best EBIKE MTB rides in the area.
Wide easy pistes, fun trails, a bit of uphill, some easy non-scary downhill, time to take in the scenery, plenty of wildlife and nature, information on the history of the Queyras and its surrounding areas.
A beautiful combination of day rides for unique EBIKE HOLIDAYS in our little corner of unspoilt paradise in the mountains !
A great day to start your EBIKE HOLIDAYS is spend the morning to stretch your legs and discover the quaint villages in the ‘Pierre Gros’ area, Molines en Queyras and St Véran, (your guide will take the time to give you a tour) followed by an excursion to the ‘Vallée de la Blanche’ to admire the glacial lakes nestled at the foot of the ‘Tête d’Estoilies’, visit the recently renovated refuge to sample the delicious homemade blueberry tart in the sunshine before heading back down through alpine pastures and larch forests.
Souliers & Lac de roue
In the Queyras area today and we’re going to head up hill to the imposing Château Queyras Fort and to reach the hidden Souliers Valley. Take the time to admire the splendid Lac de Roue where the colours change with every season. This is the midpoint of our tour so we will treat ourselves to lunch at a refuge!
The High Guil Valley
Departing from Abries village and heading to the mystical Mount Viso! 3844m high and situated just over the other side of the border in Italy…A picnic stop in the High Guil Valley, if we have the time and the energy we can pedal in the other direction and visit the Valpreyvere Hamlet and Valley.
The two valleys in Ceillac are unmissable and are often said to be the best place to go on an e-MTB ride. Riding opposite the Font Sancte massif with views of the soaring Queyras summit, refreshing mountain streams where you can dip in your toes, lush forests, remarkable geology and villages stuck in time, all of this reminding us of what’s so great about the Queyras.
A perfect day to end up your EBIKE HOLIDAYS in a relaxing atmosphere…
Alpine life and panoramas…
To end your electric bike tour, we will try to climb up to find beautiful alpine atmospheres, to be sure to reach panoramic views and retrace your EBIKE HOLIDAYS. As you will obviously have progressed, your guide may take you on some beautiful rolling singletracks to end the week ? To be continued…
