Snowshoe walks in the giffre valley

Mathias our guide and wildlife expert will take you off the beaten track to discover the mountain wilderness.

In snowshoes. The silence, punctuated by the squealing of the snow under footsteps, the sun that warms the face … Put the adrenaline aside and put on your snowshoes, for a nice relaxing walk alone, as a couple or family. No need to take classes or a lot of technique, the equipment is inexpensive and can be bought or rented easily in town. If by definition you can walk everywhere on snowshoes, the Haut-Giffre valley offers 100 km of trails on 15 marked and secured routes, so why not?

A great opportunilty to discover the fauna and flora.

Specialised equipment will allow you to take pictures guided my Mathias.

You’ll require good walking shoes.

The transport and materiel (snow shoes and poles) are included.
