If you have ever walked or climbed in the French Alps you will know how special a place this mountainous region is! Beautiful valleys that captivate trekkers and leave nothing wanting; small quaint villages, each with a unique way of life, traditions and history to be discovered. And of course the spectacular peaks: offering you one of the best places to test your climbing and mountaineering skills, demanding efficiency and a depth of experience to overcome their challenges.


A number of The Mountain People Staff are qualified International Mountain Leaders with a great amount of experience in the Alps and we are excited to start offering treks in the Southern French Alps. For the summer of 2016 we will explore the Ubaye Valley! For more trip information please see our Alps Summer Trekking trip.
