Jean-Philippe Cherbonnier

Cross country ski – rock climbing – ice climbing – mountaineering – via ferrata

As a mountain guide I have my base camp in the Queyras Natural Parc for almost 10 years now. The reason for coming to live in the Queyras was a choice of quality of life as well on a professional as on a personal level.  This splendid region allows me to help you in a lot of activities, such as cross country skiing, hiking, rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, via ferrata.

Focus on safety and friendliness are at the very centre of my engagement.  I’m partnering with some accomodations that’ll make you discover the area in their turn with respect to gastronomy and local products of the Queyras.

Pure Rafting

rafting, canoe-kayak, hydrospeed, canoraft

Olivier, an independant white water instructor, will assist you with your white water adventures adapted to your needs and capabilities, age and desires.  
I have created my this independant business after several years as an instructor for outside sports in the UCPA.
I mainly work on the Durance and the Guil.
We prioritize personal contact, strive for high quality of our material  (we provide neoprene slippers and recent wetsuits), and we aim for “out of peak time” departures, avoiding the hours where there are too many other boats on the water in peak season. This allows us to really enjoy these moments in nature together.
Children as off 6 years old.
It is mandatory to be able to swim to participate in our activities.
