Discover one of the most dramatic and beautiful areas of the Alps on snowshoes – the Ecrins National Park.

Snowshoeing is a great way to explore the Alps on foot and is accessible to everyone with a reasonable level of fitness.

Away from the well trodden paths you will snowshoe up to a col, to a summit,  through forests, around frozen lakes, along a ridge or along the valley floor with the snowy mountains, ice gullies and cliffs dramatically towering over you.

All the guides we use are fully qualified UIAGM high mountain guides and will make your safety and enjoyment their top priority.

This qualification is the highest of all guiding qualifications in the mountains. It is UIAGM high mountain guides who take people up the north face of the Eiger! Whilst you won’t be doing any mountaineering on this trip, the competence, knowledge and experience of a high mountain guide means he has the flexibility to take you wherever is safe. Other qualifications for snowshoeing are limited to the wide valley bottoms and pisted routes in nordic areas.

There are lots of choices for snowshoeing walks in the area and we will adapt the itinerary during the week to make the most of conditions. You can expect to do between 300m and 800m of ascent on an average day with 4 to 6 hours of walking – with plenty of stops!!
