EBIKE TOUR DU QUEYRAS
NOTHING THAT A “MUST DO” TOUR 100% EBIKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SOUTHERN ALPS
This EBIKE Tour du Queyras is now considered as a “MUST DO” in the Southern Alps.
Far away from the crowded routes and accomodations around the France highest mountains like Chamonix – Zermatt, here you can enjoy a pure All mountain EMTB style in an unspoilt section of the French Alps.
Wilderness, enduro lines, lonelyness on the trails, rocky parts or clear forests of melezes trees, sharped turns or natural downhill lines made by old mule trails… I am sure taht you will love our 500 meters square playground.
On the last 15 years riding there, we can say honestly that we have planned for you a route that allows you to ride on nothing but quality trails with great views, with no sections where you will need to carry your bike (hopefully !).
A full EBIKE TOUR in Queyras natural park, aiming to show you the local hospitality the best parts of the mountain, with different route options available depending on the level of the group.
Mont Dauphin Fort – Ceillac
We are off on our EBIKE TOUR du Queyras, departing late morning from our bike centre after a quick tour and bike briefing. A drop off in Ceillac at the foot of the Font Sancte Massif where we will warm up our legs, test the bikes and evaluate everyones riding ability giving riding advice where required.
Ceillac –Vallée des Aigues
A challenging, techy uphill section in “up-hill flow” mode to start the day and to reach our first mountain pass. A perfect opportunity to practise uphill cornering on an e-bike. With breathtaking views and super fun trails through forests and the countryside passing stunning areas of geological interest to reach our second mountain pass of the day overlooking the Queyras Park. A choice of downhill trails to either Molines or St Véran for the last part of the day.
Aigues Valley – Cirque de la Blanche – Abries – Haut Guil Valley
Direction ‘Vallon de la Blanche’ on the third day of our tour. Enjoying alpine pastures, similar to those in Mongolia, before heading back down into the valley. A choice of trails to get back to Abriès, we prefer the steep, flowing single track through the Haut Queyras Forest taking us past quaint mountain villages and leading to a scenic canal path ….
Abriès – Arvieux
We’re off again on a long traverse to the Arvieux Valley. Following a great little south-facing trail skirting across the edge of the mountain all the way to Arvieux, passing through Meyries, the small hamlet of Souliers, Lac de Roue and the Grand Canal… There is a short steep section where you may need to push your bike, but your guide will be there to help you out… if you need it! A fabulous day riding, not too long, so you can save some energy for the last day of your EBIKE Tour du queyras.
Arvieux – Mont Dauphin Fort
We are going to finish our tour off in style…. A climb up to the Furfande Col to reach its magnificent alpine pastures, with breathtaking views over the Guil Gorge….an unmissable area and on our route back to Mont Dauphin. The uphill section is fairly easy on an e-bike and the downhill takes us through the mountain pastures just above the Gorges. This is an unforgettable trail, with parts of it running along the ‘Great Alpine Crossing’ (Grande traversée des Hautes Alpes)… We should arrive back in Mont Dauphin late afternoon.
