Queyras MTB Adventure – France

A 6-day point to point mountain bike adventure

During this 6-day point 2 point enduro adventure, you will discover le Queyras; a protected mountain area on the border of France and Italy. We dare say that the mountain biking opportunities here are world-class and the mountains and trails seem to be made for mountain bikes. Think flowy singletracks with technical sections, straight through larch forests and rideable peaks up to 3000m with great views of the mountains turning yellow in autumn. We spend the night at friendly dormitories in authentic mountain villages. Ride with us in mountain bike heaven!

The Riding

Le Queyras is a protected ‘Parc regional’, focused on sustainability and authenticity. You’ll find beautiful scenery, with a wide variety of geology and authentic mountain villages far away from mass tourism. Ski lifts are hardly there, so besides 1-2 uplifts, you rely on good old leg power! Every day we climb between 1000 and 1500 metres, on roads, 4×4 trails and singletracks. Sometimes we have to push the bike or even rely on a hike-a-bike to reach our highest point. However, the reward is worth it! Imagine riding peaks up to 3000m, technical sections in alpine meadows, flowing through larch forests to arrive in an authentic mountain village for a beer, a meal and a good night’s sleep.

The week

We welcome you on Sunday at the hotel in Guillestre, where we will spend the first night. On Monday, we start our enduro adventure with a transfer from the to the village of Ceillac where the tour begins. For six days we will set off for a point 2 point bike adventure through the Queyras. Via several cols and peaks, we will ride the most beautiful trails right through the beautiful autumn landscape of the Queyras. Six days later, we will return to our starting point in the Durance valley via a final fantastic descent.

Sleep

Each night we sleep in a different location, ranging from a cosy chambre d’hôte to a remote mountain hut. Dinner and breakfast are included and for lunch you can order a packed lunch or go to the local bakery (if there is one…). On Saturday, we drive back to the valley, for a final overnight in a hotel before returning home on Sunday.

What to bring

To fully enjoy this week, you should have experience riding alpine singletracks and be fit to climb and descend 1000-1500m per day. We recommend a (full suspension) trail/enduro bike, with 130-160mm suspension travel. As there are no luggage transfers, you should bring a 25-litre backpack to carry your personal gear for the week. Of course, you will receive a packing list to know what to bring on the trip.
