Snowshoeing is the perfect way to explore the beautiful forests, rivers and mountains of the Chamonix valley. Together with a qualified guide you will hike some of the most beautiful trails, either high up amongst the peaks or lower down across the valley floor.
You don’t have to travel far to escape into the wilderness, where you will be surrounded by nature and have a good chance of seeing some local wildlife such as chamois or bouquetin. No matter where you go, you will be treated to the incredible views of the Mont Blanc Massif and the Aiguilles Rouges for which Chamonix is famous.
There is so much to discover in the valley, not least the wonderful mountain refuges where you can enjoy a delicious lunch in a traditional hut and treat yourself to a local dish such as tartiflette or cheese fondue – don’t worry, you can hike off the calories on the way back!
Your guide will show you the correct technique to move comfortably and efficiently using snowshoes and hiking poles, taking you on safe enjoyable routes that are suited to your level of fitness.
Snowshoe hikes can be booked as a day activity with a break for lunch, as an evening activity with dinner in a mountain restaurant, or as a multi-day excursion with an overnight stay in a mountain refuge. All itineraries are planned on an individual basis to give you the best possible experience.
You may have never walked in the high mountains but you’d like to experience the wonders of high altitude scenery. Mountain trails are rarely flat; you’re ready to ascend and descend short steep sections on your way to discovering nature’s unique and amazing sights.
