Overview

Book
Sandwiched between Briancon and the Italian border, the remote Alpine region of Queyras offers exceptional trekking with a distinctly 'off-the-beaten-track' feel. Based very loosely on the Tour of Queyras circuit (GR58), this exciting new trekking holiday has been modified to include the very best hikes in the area. From a succession of charming refuges and gites, we climb around 1000 metres each day to reach the high ground, before continuing to such rocky summits as Rocca Bianca (3059m), Pain du Sucre (3208m) and Grand Glaiza (3293m). Throughout the holiday, there are fantastic views, north to the snow-capped Ecrins and Vanoise massifs and south to the dominating spire of Monte Viso (3841m). Seeking out the quietest areas, we can enjoy our picnic lunches in the company of marmots, chamois and golden eagles. The quality of the hiking in this hidden corner of the French Alps is a revelation!

Highlights

    • Views of dominating spire of Monte Viso from Pain du Sucre
    • The wooden chalets of Fonts de Cervieres
    • A tough 6-day trekking holiday in a hidden corner of France
    • Fully supported with luggage transferred to gites each evening

The leader really made the trip for me. It was great he was a French leader and we did not come across any other British tourists the whole week! Stunning views and wonderful scenery.

Excellent - exactly what I was after. Tough and interesting walking; some scrambling up to peaks, good number of peaks. Out guide was a fantastic leader. Competent, calm, relaxed and extremely knowledgeable.

The trip leader, could not have been better. She was helpful, patient, attentive, professional and unflappable. She is both a skilled mountaineer and a skilled group leader. She was the best group leader we have ever travelled with and we will happily recommend her for 'group leader of the year'.

A fantastic holiday in a great unspoilt region with a good route. The days were demanding but rewarding. Loved the place and the views and liked going to the summits, particularly the Pain de Sucre. The holiday was made more enjoyable by a great group and an excellent leader. Mylene was a fantastic leader. Always smiling, integrating well into the group and great company. Professional and inspiring confidence, patient with the slower and less confident members of the group, but managing the pace well. She lead effortlessly and we all followed without even thinking.
