Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing trips are a magical way to experience the winter wonderland! Let us introduce you to this wonderful way to explore the winter landscape.

Snowshoes (Raquettes) allow your body weight to be spread out across the surface of the snow preventing you from sinking. This along with poles (batons) means you are balanced and can easily hike in the snowy wilderness.

 

 

Experience Counts…

Snowshoes adventures are suitable all types of people, including families and young children. We will tailor your hike to meet your aspirations and accommodate suitable snow conditions.

Our trips run from Châtel, located in the Abondance Valley, Port du Soleil and also Bellevaux in Vallee Brevon, France, although in Châtel we are so close to the Swiss border you will often find yourself hiking between countries.
