Imagine yourself hiking through stunning fields of wildflowers, enjoying a French picnic at a high lake, wandering through an untouched French mountain village, savoring a 5 course French dinner & regional wine, only to end the day by retiring to your private room feeling fit & relaxed!
This amazing tour ventures through five untouched high mountain villages where one can immerse deeply into nature and culture. Get off the beaten path and create an experience of a lifetime. A photographers and hill-walkers dream!
The Queyras is a dramatic, unspoilt region of the French Alps, between the Durance Valley and the Italian border. Due to being sheltered to the west by the Écrins, it is one of the sunniest areas of the Alps and the absence of glaciers makes the Queyras ideal hillwalking country as it has several high mountain summits accessible to the ordinary hiker.
There is plenty of variety on the trail, from woodland glades to rocky, high-level cols, from Alpine pastures to airy summits. The Tour may include excursions into the Italian Alps, and there are opportunities to shorten or lengthen the route as time and conditions dictate. The route is ideal for those new to Alpine walking, while also providing optional challenges for the more experienced.
