Sporty fun around Bric Bouchet
Leaning up against the Italian border, the charming village of Abriès is home to miles of signposted walking trails ideal for mountain biking and hiking enthusiasts alike. Spanning 160 km² and soaring up to 3,000 metres above sea level, this is a place you won’t want to miss! The Autour du Bric Bouchet trail is an absolute must if you’re a fan of sporty hikes and gorgeous mountainscapes. The 18.2 km trail with 1,288 metres of uphill and downhill slopes, lined with mythical summits, larch trees and mountain lakes, takes about 6½ hours to complete. On your way, keep your eyes peeled for the Alpine Ibex. Watch out for the nebbia too: a sea of clouds that rises from Italy and clings to the rocky relief along the border. And after the effort comes comfort – treat yourself to a gourmet stop-off at the Italian refuge of Lago Verde, famed for its fresh pasta… Delizioso!
