3 DAYS / 3 EBIKE SPOTS
THE PERFECT EBIKE MULTIDAYS TOUR IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A GLIMPSE OF THE SOUTHERN ALPS
Based at the crossroads of 3 spectacular massifs in the north of the Hautes Alpes (Ecrins – Queyras – Guillestre) With this EBIKE Multidays tour, you can take advantage of your central location to explore one of the most unspoilt place in the southern Alps. Between the turbulent waters of the River Guil and the turquoise blue of the River Durance, between the north and south-facing slopes, between the plains and the mountain, this e-bike tour is what you could call one of contrasts.
