We love this area! Why? At the moment, there is no other area that fascinates us more with its breathtaking scenery, mighty summits and forgotten valleys. Together with endless single trails, this creates a synthesis of the arts. On this trip, we would like to plunge deeper into this astonishing nature with you. We’ll cross the border from France to Italy and back again, never falling below 2500 metres above sea level. Our starting point will be in Ubaye valley.
On the first day, we’ll ride up and down at a quite moderate level. The following days will be more challenging. The first night we’ll stay in a rustic mountain lodge in the middle of high mountain scenery. Remoteness… Together we will cross the national border at 3142 metres above sea level! This is absolutely unique! You’ll be speechless, not only because of thin air. It’s the same with the trail down to Valle de Maurin. Valle Maira is a playground and we’ll find accommodation in a small old village where we’ll enjoy the excellent Piedmontese cuisine. There is so much to explore here; Passo Gardetta, Monte Tibert – a classic! We wouldn’t be ‘ride alpine trails’, if we didn’t find the trails no other guided group rides. Let’s wait and see!
After two nights in beautiful Ceaglio, we’ll continue our tour on interesting old paths to Val Stura, accompanied by breathtaking views. The trail is just georgeous! “Osteria de la pace” is our next hotel. So you don’t have to worry about culinary delights. We are also prepared to offer you an alpine biking program that has no equal. In these days, we will realise that we are small but we will have the greatest experiences. We’ll feel every singel muscle, sweat, enjoy the mountain scenery, have picnics in far flung places and bike trails we will never forget!
Mountainbike adventure! Never stop exploring!
This camp cannot be compared with the other camps we are offering on our website. There will be a shuttle car to help us where it is possible. Nevertheless, there will be several hours of exhaustive biking. Some trails and approaches require a good head for hights and very good sure-footedness on mountainous terrain. Please prepare accordingly.
About 14500 metres of descent and only 6000 metres of ascent!
