The GR®58 Tour du Queyras is a classic walking tour. The Queyras is a special area that offers a typical mountain environment that has become the stuff of legend for walkers. You can tour the area in eight days, passing through pastures and forests of larches, and also rabbit hutches and a few patches of névé snow. You can stroll beside a lake, discover a chapel here and a traditional log-style chalet there, and ancient inscriptions on stones… Then in the evening you can enjoy the local hospitality while sampling the region’s cuisine. There are several variant routes for this tour, each more attractive than the last. There are also handsome peaks to climb, including the Pic de Caramantran and the Pain de Sucre… You can also pop into Italy or walk three stages of the Tour of Monte Viso and Tour of La Foncte Sancte between the Queyras and Ubaye. The area has a rich and varied flora, especially around the Monte Viso (the Roche Ecroulée botanical path on the balcony over Monte Viso). The local fauna contains several treasures that need to be protected, such as the Spanish moon moth and Lanza’s Alpine salamander, as well as other species including chamois, ibex on the Col de la Traversette, ptarmigan and Black grouse. It is also worth visiting the Ristolas visitors centre as it houses some fine collections, including an exhibition about wolves. The tour takes place almost exclusively within the Queyras Regional Nature Park and you must respect its rules and regulations. This enchanting tour is both diverse and beautiful. There are no individual sections that are overly difficult and it is open to everyone. We feel sure you will want to come back and explore the other walks this beautiful part of the world has to offer. Given the large number of accommodation providers and variant routes here, you can easily choose your own route and stages.
