Snowshoeing with a guide means taking the time to enjoy an experience, to marvel and to learn… Experience fitness, pleasure, relaxation, and nature.
With half-day outings on a specific theme, or full-day "escapes" in a friendly atmosphere, all guided by a professional, take the time during the winter to discover the mountains, local life, animal tracks, and paths to new landscapes... plateaus, ridge lines, peaks or balcony trails. Hike and picnic or enjoy meals in a warm mountain lodge. Go a little higher and a little further via alpine hikes.
You can also book a guide for your family or your group for a half-day, a full day, or an evening.

Consult the weekly program to discover all the walks:
Bring snowshoes, a pair of hiking boots, sticks, something to drink, a beanie (or other warm hat), gloves, sunglasses, and the appropriate clothing.

Even if the "easy" snowshoeing outings are available to "everyone", they do require being a minimum in shape. For example, capable of climbing three flights of stairs without stopping.

Depending on weather and snow conditions.
From 02/12/2024 to 30/03/2025, daily between 9 am and 5 pm.
According to the weekly programme, published from Saturday to Saturday.

Subject to snow conditions.
