A guide to the Tour of the Queyras which makes use of two GR trails (GR58 and GR541) and their variants and a number of non-GR footpaths trails. The route includes the highest point reached on any grand randonee with 24 cols above 2000m and options to climb up to 17 summits, five above 3000m. The Queyras is a dramatic, unspoilt region in the shadow of Monte Viso, sheltered to the west by the Ecrins, and is one of the sunniest areas of the Alps. The absence of glaciers makes ideal hillwalking country, with several high mountain summits accessible to the ordinary walker, hiker and scrambler. This route is ideal as a first-time alpine walking tour or for the experienced mountain walker. The tour is described in 12 day stages, each stage terminates at a place where there is overnight accommodation. In general, the stages are not especially long, although there is some variation in the length and severity of each section. The guidebook includes altitude profiles, full details of facilities en route and several alternative routes and excursions.
