Snowshoeing Holiday

Our snowshoeing holidays are an incredible opportunity to discover the natural beauty and tranquillity of the French Alps during winter. With some lightweight modern snowshoes attached to your feet ('raquettes' in French), you can walk completely off-piste leaving the ski runs and skiers behind.

Surrounded by fresh untracked snow, you will have the perfect opportunity to observe animal tracks and admire frozen rivers and waterfalls. This glorious winter wonderland with views across the Mont Blanc Massif is the perfect place to enjoy a snowshoeing holiday.

The lightweight snowshoes attach to your walking boots providing a larger base for walking on snow - you will feel totally comfortable with your new equipment in no time. Walking poles and safety equipment is also provided.

You can expect a typical day to include around six hours of walking with climbs of 500 to 1,000 vertical metres (1,600-3,200 feet). Winter weather and snow conditions can vary considerably but you can be certain that we will find the perfect trails to maximise your enjoyment of your snowshoeing holiday.

We include five days of snowshoeing as part of your holiday but of course you may decide to spend a day or two enjoying some of the incredible skiing found in the Grand Massif.

Solo Travellers & Small Groups

There's no need to find a group to fill our chalet for these walking trips as all of these holidays are open to solo travellers or small groups.

There is no single supplement to pay although we may ask that you share a twin room with a same sex traveller.

Difficulty & Grading

We are keen to make sure that all of our guests get the holiday expected and enjoy the walking as much as possible.

If any guests find themselves considerably less fit and able than the rest of the group or unable to meet the requirements of the particular grade, we reserve the right the move the guest to a lower graded group or to offer self-guided walking. Route cards, maps and a GPS unit are offered for self-guided days in this situation.
