Ready to ride? Get ready for an epic 5-day mountain bike adventure in the enchanting Val Varaita. You will immerse yourself in one of the most fascinating and genuine valleys in the Alps, where the paths are endless and the views are breathtaking.

Not only that: you will be able to discover the ancient Occitan traditions and admire Monviso, one of the most iconic mountains in the Alps. You don't have to worry about anything: our guides Andrea and Nicolò, "the Margaria brothers", will accompany you on this journey and know every path in the valley. They will take you to otherwise inaccessible places, make you taste the local flavors and make you try the most adventurous trails in the area, such as those of the "Trans Varaita Bike" race that they organize themselves.

But don't think that you will spend all your time on your bike: you will have the opportunity to relax in our welcoming accommodation facility, take a dip in the pool and sip a glass of wine in company. In Piedmont there is so much to discover... and we will take you where no one has ever taken you before!

The 6 day program:


Day 1

Sampeyre - Meeting & Briefing

Welcome to Val Varaita! The meeting point is in Sampeyre, a town in the middle valley where we will stay for the next few days. After settling into the apartment, we will meet the Guide and the other tour participants for the briefing where we will find out what awaits us in the next few days!
Piedmont is certainly famous for its gastronomic traditions and its wines, so when we return we will officially start the holiday with some classics of the culinary tradition and a nice toast in view of the next few days.

Day 2

Sampeyre - Shuttle Menu

Let's go! After a substantial breakfast we enter the heart of our adventure. Today, with the shuttle at our disposal all day, we will be able to enjoy some of the most beautiful trails in the middle valley and those who have an e-mtb will be able to add some crunchy climbs to their day.
This first day is truly an excellent appetizer of what awaits us in the next few days in Val Varaita!

Day 3

Colle Reisassetto

A full immersion in nature: today 1,000 meters of climb await us and sometimes it will be necessary to push our bike a little. But the descent! Kilometers of pure enduro, between mountain meadows and through majestic woods, on paths that could hardly be more fun. Special of the day? Today lovers of hairpin bends will have their money's worth! In the afternoon we return to the valley through charming Alpine villages and then finally treat ourselves to a well-deserved drink by the pool.

Day 4

Sampeyre hill

The mountains of Piedmont, what mountains! Today you cycle at high altitude along the ridge that separates the Varaita Valley from the Maira Valley with a view that sweeps over the plain and towards its majesty Monviso, the mountain par excellence here. A lake shines at the bottom of the valley, while French is already being spoken in the background. The trails today are partly smooth and beautiful to ride but also very technical at times, a wild mix! To finish the day, one last uphill ride to reach one of the most iconic paths in the valley: Vaccheroba!

Day 5

French kiss -riding between Italy and France

Today not only is French spoken, we start right from the border with France, from one of the most evocative places in the valley at over 2700 meters above sea level.
We have 3 different options for this day of French riding, all very interesting and challenging and all have in common the fact of reaching the wonderful Blue Lake. Returning to the valley with a long and technical descent, Chianale, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy , definitely worth a stop. But don't think that the day is over here: let's gather our strength because the climb to the Bagnour refuge awaits us with some stretches where it will be necessary to carry the bike on our shoulders or push it. But the effort is rewarded by the environment we pass through: the largest extension of stone pine in Europe, a dream landscape and a welcoming refuge for a last snack before the last epic descent that takes us home.

Day 6

Mount Losetta

For this last day of adventure we have chosen a destination that is nothing short of mythical and certainly not banal, but there are many ways to tackle it: with a long transfer by shuttle, by pedaling about 1000 meters or the entire climb! This will be decided the evening before in the briefing with our guide, but what is certain is that the view you will see today will remain imprinted in your mind forever! In the evening, as tradition now dictates, an aperitif awaits us by the pool and a last tasty Piedmontese dinner.

Day 7


After a last leisurely breakfast, we load up the bikes and equipment and set off on our return journey. For many this will not be the last visit to Valle Varaita. Or you can stay and let your legs move a bit...Did we already tell you about the garden and the swimming pool...?
