Pra Loup, Espace Lumière: What to do when you get there ?

They say the French Alps are a nature lover’s top destination in France and that may be an understatement. Pra-Loup, located in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence just 7 kilometers from the town of Barcelonette, is a world class ski resort that caters to all adventure sport enthusiasts, both in winter and summer.

Long gone are the days when shepherds settled here 900 years B.C, today Pra-Loup thrives and attracts skiers and snowboarders from around the world, particularly Europe. Since 1960, the ski station has existed and slowly, but firmly, has gained its place among ski destinations in the beautiful white Alps.

With 180km of pistes for every level, Pra-Loup is an excellent ski destination for anyone who wishes to ski on groomed slopes. Still the whimsical geography and white winter coat of the French Alps allows for the more bold and experienced skiers, and snowboarders, to engage in thrilling off-piste snow adventures.

The crisp white snow that covers the Valley of Ubaye, creates a spectacular juxtaposition with the bright blue sky. If the Alps are astonishing from the ground, imagine being able to see them from the air!

Aside from the extensive skiing opportunities, Pra-loup also proposes skydiving from the Saint-Pons aerodrome in Barcelonette, or paragliding from Pra-Loup 1600. Ski during the morning and fly in the afternoon, sounds like a great plan right?!

With your feet on the ground again, you can put on snowshoes and discover the forest away from the beaten path. Feel like an ancient shepherd seeking fresh green grass to feed their heard. Appreciate the awe-inspiring landscape and breathe in the clean mountain air.

In summer, take a hike or trek to experience the wildlife and get up close to the marmots, chamois and ibex. Discover large raptors such as eagles and vultures that frequently soar overhead. Access more than 600 kilometers of marked footpaths, so pack you backpack and get a move on!

Why not change your skis for a mountain bike and enjoy the slopes in a different way. Over 300 kilometers of downhill biking trails can be rode around the Ubaye Valley, ride through woods, alpine meadows and traditional villages on trails available for all levels.

When the snow melts in the mountain, the river water level rises creating the perfect playground for watersports lovers. Raft down 50 km of the Ubaye River and feel sensations like never before with varied rapids.

Whether you come with you winter coat or with shorts, Pra-Loup is a natural treasure for adventure sport enthusiast.
