Wildlife & Walking in the French Alps

Our beautiful surroundings here in Samoëns offer incredible opportunities to see spectacular, elusive and even rare wildlife and a guided walking holiday with our expert mountain man Bruno gives you the best chance of seeing these treats of nature.

Have you seen…?

Family Adventure in the Alps – A Great Summer Destination

A Family Holiday in the Alps – A Summer Adventure

Samoëns is a wonderful destination for a family ski holiday and is brilliantly suited to a week or two away with your loved ones. A proper, fully functioning & family-friendly village rather than a purpose built ski resort, the people and businesses of Samoëns are used to having children around all year.

More on our family-friendly village

Whether you are after a family ski holiday or an alternative to the more traditional summer holiday, the Alps have something to offer and Samoëns in particular is a wonderful family venue!

Walking Holidays in the French Alps – Photo(s) of the Week

Walking holidays in the French Alps – Photo of the week

This week saw our walking guests take to the hills for a couple of multi-day treks. With access to more remote areas and even more wildlife, it’s been another difficult week for choosing a single photo of the week.

If you would like the chance to capture such beautiful images, why not take a look at our French Alps walking holidays. Our calendar for 2013 will be announced shortly!

The Queen of the Alps

Just when you thought that you’d seen all the photos of the Cascade de Rouget or “Queen of the Alps”, Bruno pulls this one out of the bag…

Walking Holidays – Photo of the Week

Walking Holidays – Photo of the Week

It’s been a while since our last blog update and a lot has been happening here in Samoëns. Our various walking holidays and family adventure holidays have been a great hit (why not take a look at our latest reviews on Trip Advisor) and we have too many photos again to limit to just one photo of the week…

An impressive close up

This wonderfully detailed photo of a fly was taken by one of our guests who was introduced to the world of close-up photography by our guide Bruno that morning. Julia clearly has a great eye for macro photography!

A stunning close up of a fly...

Walking Holidays – Photo(s) of the week

Photo of the Week from Our Walking Holidays

This week, once again, we’ve found it very difficult to select a single photo of the week. As a result, we’ve gone for two super shots: a close up; and a landscape shot!

Beautiful Butterflies!

These little beauties were spotted by our guide Bruno.

A Typical Day on Our Guided Walking Holidays

Guided Walking Holidays – A Typical Day

We’ve blogged previously about the benefits of a guide on a walking holiday (click here for more info), but I thought I’d put together a few pictures of a walk that was enjoyed by our guests yesterday.

Refuge de Sales... And beyond

With a few of the guests opting for a gentler day in the valley, Bruno (our infectiously enthusiastic, resident mountain guide) and four guided walking guests set off in the direction of the Refuge de Sales.
