Snowshoeing is the perfect way to explore both the mountains and valleys in winter. There is nothing complicated about snowshoeing, you are just going for a walk and using a piece of equipment, a snowshoe, to prevent you from sinking too deeply into the snow. They also have studs on the base which gives a good grip in icy conditions. Easy!
It is an activity that is growing rapidly with more and more people heading for the hills in winter. We put it down to the fact that snowshoes allow you to get away from the crowds, and into a magical winter wonderland of silent forests, beautiful mountains and stunning views.
On our snowshoe trips we also like to share our knowledge of the winter mountains and will chat about the snow pack and how to choose a safe route for the conditions. Remember you don't need any previous experience to snowshoe, just warm clothes, reasonable fitness and a sense of adventure!
All our trips are available for private groups. If you would like to travel on different dates, or with family or friends on a bespoke trip, then please get in touch giving your preferred dates and itinerary.
If you love a journey through the mountains then this snowshoe adventure which crosses the Chablais is definitely for you. Six days of stunning hiking over high passes and through quaint villages. Each night you arrive with a glow to your cheeks and with thoughts of a good dinner, and a cosy bed. Perfect!
Snowshoeing in the Dolomites, surely one of the world's most beautiful mountain ranges. The scenery here is simply breathtaking and you have a whole week to experience the joy of walking in winter in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Italian coffee, pasta, cake and a lung full of fresh air!
NEW: We are amazed it has taken us until now to feature a snowshoe trip in the Allgäu Alps! How did we not recognise that this area has literally hundreds of snowshoe routes to explore and enjoy? Combine characterful Bavarian culture, architecture, folklore, food and stunning snowshoe summits and you have an idea of what this week offers. We had the most amazing first trip to this area in 2019 and now we are offering you the chance to join us on this brilliant new snowshoe trip.
This trip is a 'combination' of our two long-weekend winter holidays. Our Italian Ski Break in the stunning valley of Cogne, and our Snowshoe Long Weekend, based in the world famous Chamonix Valley, France. These trips are aimed as introductions to cross country skiing and snowshoeing, both fabulous ways to explore the winter wonderland and activities which are steadily increasing their following. Go on have a go!
