The adventures in details

THE BIVOUACS

Our camps are moved everyday by two Land Rover Defender hauling two trailers, with one of them being our fully equipped mobile kitchen. Everything is set up by our team in peaceful landscapes, between forest and pasture.

Camps

The camp consist of 2 person tents with a 130 sq.ft (12 sq.m) living space. They feature two cots with a luxurious set of Pyrenex duvet and pillow.
The tents also feature a wood stove, Fermob lights, a soft rug as well the necessary coat hanger and valet stand for your comfort. Carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors and fire extinguisher are of course integrated in the tent for the upmost safety.

Meals

For your 3 daily meals, you’ll enjoy menus conceived and cooked with local supplies and groceries by our Chef who is part of the traveling team.
Every morning fuel up on energy and nutriment for your riding day around a continental breakfast, grab your light lunch and enjoy wine tasting paired with the best of the local cuisine every night.

THE TEAM

The experienced team escorting and guiding you is made of a Chef, a maitre d’hotel, an aide de camp and of course Romain the expedition leader.
Seasoned and experiences with moto trips around the world, Romain and his team are never caught off guard and always react in a calm and positive way to make your trip a blissful experience.

Oh and if you was wondering, yes, we speak English!

THE ROUTES

The Routes are carefully scouted and selected paths combining road and trail that you can follow with the provided GPS device.
We have composed them like musical pieces with some key moments, some more relaxed, some « chorus » like bits coming back a few time in the day. We have of course favored charming roads and colorful trails so that no matter your experience you can have fun and finish every legs of the journey.

THE VEHICULES TYPES

The primary goal of the Baak Aventures is to allow you to slow down for a few days and finally take time to enjoy the journey. And to us it seams that the best way to do so is to get back to the root of motorcycle and pure riding by using a simple bike or a classic bike to do so.

Your bike or our Rides!

You can come with your bike but for our routes only the classic Scrambler or Trail bike are appropriate to enjoy the ride as we intend to or you’ll be done with the day’s path by lunch time and that would be a shame! (We can take care of your bike shipping for an extra cost upon request)
If you want to live the Baak aventures to the fullest and especially if you live half way across the world, we have a fleet of colorful Royal Enfield 650 Interceptor with a special BAAK Trail treatment.
If you choose this option, the bike will wait for you at the initial meeting point and you’ll just have to leave them with your host at the end of the trip.


These road-trips are therefore to be experienced on the handlebars of motorcycles with character. That’s why we work with Vintage Rides, who exclusively distribute our routes, as their DNA and philosophy of road tripping is the same.

HAVE A LOOK OF THE TRIP ITINERARY - EVASION TRAIL ALPES DU SUD

On dirt tracks and asphalt roads, discover the Alpes-Maritimes, Alpes de Haute Provence and Hautes-Alpes, departing from Nice. This adventure is great if you’re a confident rider and want to discover the joys of off-road riding on your own trail bike or a hire one. Together with your expedition leader, you’ll follow the GPS routes sent at the beginning of the trip. You’ll ride across southern Alp passes on narrow roads and rocky tracks crossing the Mercantour National Park until Serre-Ponçon Lake. During the day, you will either dine in restaurants selected by the team or enjoy a packed lunch picnic, prepared by our chef, in the countryside. As evening falls, expect a well-deserved rest in exceptional natural settings thanks to our portable campsite. Our private chef will serve delicious meals that we’ll enjoy together around the campfire as we watch the sun set. We’ll sleep under the stars in the comfort of our cotton tents heated by wood burners.

STAGE 1:
From Nice to Sospel
175 km / 30% offroad, 70% tarmac / 4h ride
RDV at the camping Les Cents Chênes at 9am
After meeting at Les Cent Chênes campsite, Nice, at 9 am, you’ll be given your rental trail bikes prepared by BAAK and be briefed on the rules of off-roading in nature. We set off at 10 am and leave the Niçois hinterland behind us and head for Vésubie Valley to get to grips with our bikes in this new setting on picture-perfect roads made for trail bikes. In the afternoon, we hit our first tracks leaving L’Escarène and arriving in Sospel. We enter Mercantour National Park through Bévéra Valley and discover a typically Mediterranean arid and rocky landscape until we climb the Col de Turini. We end the day on tracks overlooked by L’Authion until we reach our camp just outside the national park.

STAGE 2:
From Sospel to Ilonse
210 km / 65% offroad, 35% tarmac / 6h30 ride
We leave at the crack of dawn to embark on the longest day of our adventure: 130 miles await. We reach the Col de Brouis via tracks and start our descent into the Roya Valley. Leaving Tende, we join the Road of the Fortresses via small trails until we arrive at Forte Colle Alto late in the morning. Leaving the fortresses behind us, we have lunch in a local Italian restaurant not far from Demonte. Rested and fed, we end our day returning to France via the Santa Anna track to the French-Italian border and the Isola pass. The last stretch proves to be a lot easier as we descend along Tinée River until Ilonse.

STAGE 3:
From Ilonse to Parpaillon
160 km / 30% offroad, 70% tarmac / 5h ride
We start the third day heading to Pierlas via narrow cliffside roads in the Cians Valley. Around six miles later, we enter the Daluis gorges on steep roads along the Roudoule River. The Daluis gorges carved out in red schist open out onto the 2-km long Var bridge. We climb the gorges by a cliffside road until the legendary Pont de la Mariée and take in the stunning views from its 80 m height. We mount our trail bikes after lunch in Guillaumes and head to the Col de la Cayolle in the heart of the Mercantour surrounded by larch forests. The hardest track of our adventure stands before us: a mighty 950 m ascent via rocky tracks that take us up to the Col de la Bonette, the highest road in Europe at 2,800 m altitude at its highest point. Expect a spectacular 360° view of a wonderful lunar landscape! We go back down to Lauziers via the Route de la Bonette and take a few tracks to end the day at our camp nestled at the foot of the Parpaillon Massif (2,000 m altitude).

STAGE 4:
From Parpaillon to Aspres sur Buëch
155 km / 40% offroad, 60% tarmac / 5h ride
After a night in the mountains next to a river, we tackle the colossal Col de Parpaillon. Being around 30 miles long and culminating at 2,780 m, this pass is a must-visit spot in the French Alps with its 520 m long tunnel at the top. Skill is needed on the way up and the descent is much smoother on the Hautes-Alpes side. We continue on tracks until we reach Serre-Ponçon Lake for lunch. We can enjoy a rest next to the lake before finishing the day touring some of the villages nestled among Col d’Espréaux’s black peaks. If you want to take your adventure up a notch, in partnership with Alpine Flying School, you can book a microlight in the evening to get a bird’s-eye view of our route.

STAGE 5:
From Aspres to Buëch to Barrême
180 km / 20% piste – 80% tarmac / 5h ride
Today, we explore the black peaks during a long stretch towards Barrême. This lunar landscape was formed under the sea during the Jurassic period when clay-limestone sediments, also known as marl, were deposited. We continue our route southbound via a track that links Valavoire and Authon along the Col de l’Hysope, which takes us to Digne-les-Bains. We leave the département’s administrative centre behind us and continue on the D20 to the Col de Pierre Basse and Col de Corobin. We ride tracks that climb La Sapet and arrive at our camp by the end of the day.

ÉTAPE 6 :
From Barrême to Nice
155 km / 35% offroad, 65% tarmac / 5h30 ride
We set off mid-morning for our last day of riding. We head directly onto white tracks lined by grasses and thyme bushes all the way up to Thorame. We take our last tracks of the adventure towards Saint-André-les-Bains and onto the Col de Saint-Barnabé. We enjoy an alfresco lunch surrounded by nature at the top of La Bernarde. We end our week-long adventure on windy roads with a spot of wild swimming in Aiglun and Riolan’s natural pools. We return to the Niçois hinterland and Les Cents Chênes campsite, where our adventure ends.

La Corrèze is without a doubt one of France’s green jewel, with wild stretches of lands, rolling hills countryside, bushy meadows and dense forests so that you can even compare it to the beautiful states of Wyoming or Montana in the USA.

Confort, safety and well being are the staff’s top priority to insure an unforgettable experience: you’ll ride on confortable Western saddles, strapped on horse with a stable foot and a thorough training so you can enjoy the views safely from lakes to forests and green rolling hills.

What did you think about it?

 

We contacted 2 brothers and one of their friend who rode the Haute Provence route. The group let themselves be carried along by the atmosphere and the landscapes over the course of the 5 days of adventure riding the the beautiful Royal Enfield customized by BAAK but on 3rd day, they decided to split from the group and go on at their own path while still following the GPS track designed by Romain. What are they thoughts about it?
