Most beautifull lakes of Queyras

Sometimes called little Switzerland, the Queyras region is known above all for its high villages, its larch forests and its wide mountain pastures. On the edge of the Italian border, this massif benefits from the coolness of the mountains and the blue sky of the Southern Alps. There are more than 300 days of sunshine per year! On the border, the imposing Mount Viso (3841 m), the 2nd Italian summit, rises.
Here nature is wild and preserved by the Regional Natural Park: numerous high altitude lakes, rare floral species, abundant mountain fauna (hares, marmots, chamois, eagles and even wolves...).
This stay is for you who love hiking through the wide open spaces and mountain lakes reflecting the surrounding peaks.

You will like

  • The diversity of the upper lakes of Queyras
  • The sunny climate of the Southern Alps
  • The discovery of a massif that has preserved its heritage and traditions (chalet in fustes, fountain in larches, sundials...)
  • Comfortable accommodation

From the small isolated village of Souliers, beautiful climb in the pastoral valley to reach the borders of the Briançonnaises dominated by the famous Grand Rochebrune.

After passing through a myriad of small lakes where the linaigrettes blossom cheerfully, the Néal pass opens a distant horizon on the massif des Écrins and the lake just below.
