Occitan experiences

Occitan Experiences are a project supported by

The Occitan Experiences are a proposal dedicated to mountain lovers who wish to visit it consciously and with respect for the places crossed, a story in two stories that will take shape in Valle Maira. Two stories that will become two video documentaries, distributed in Italy and internationally.

The protagonists of the Occitan Experiences will be men and women who decide to get involved to experience authentic and truly sustainable journeys. Challenging experiences from a sporting point of view, but above all an opportunity to explore the mountains with respect and “by fair means” from an environmental point of view.

A backcountry ski adventure

A completely independent backcountry ski adventure in a wild and challenging environment. Moving by train and e-bike they will reach the valley and the historic village of Elva, the protagonists will experience an adventurous crossing - accompanied by a mountain guide - which will take them in 5 days to cover the entire middle and upper valley, reaching peaks of 3,000 meters and crossing pristine valleys and plateaus.

We are looking for a group of maximum 4 people, sensitive to the issue of sustainability and with the desire to discover and tell a wild and fascinating territory. The experience will be completely free and will include reimbursement of travel and accommodation expenses. Expected period: one week in the period from 27 February to 10 March 2023.
