Snowshoeing holidays in the French alps

Snowshoeing holidays in the French alps

A fantastic un-discovered secret. That's a summary of snowshoeing.

Think of taking a walk in a vast snowscape, away from everything other than the native wildlife and natural landscape. Add in frozen waterfalls, animal tracking, spectacular views and top it all off with a mountain refuge lunch-stop or late afternoon vin chaud. Now you have a picture of snowshoeing. You might even get to build an igloo in the trees or stay in a mountain refuge as part of a longer two-day trip.

We’re delighted to offer all our guests the opportunity to either take a full weeks Snowshoeing holiday, or indeed combine a skiing holiday with the occasional day-out on the Snowshoes too. We have teamed up with two of the best & most knowledgeable snowshoeing guides in the area to bring this experience within reach of our guests. You do not have to be a fitness freak to enjoy snowshoeing, a person of average fitness will be more than capable of doing all of our Snowshoe walks.

Snowshoeing prices & what’s included

  • Snowshoeing days cost between €30-50/person for each day depending on the size of your group
  • Route maps / guidebooks are available for routes if you want to venture out by yourselves
