Description

Come and discover the snowy expanses of the largest nature reserve in France. In the heart of winter, with snowshoes on our feet, we will explore these high wild plateaus of the Vercors massif and we will spend the night in the spirit of the trappers of the north, in an isolated hut. And it is with the wood stove that we will cook a mountain meal.

In short, you will live a snowshoeing weekend, with raclettes, full of conviviality and a wild escapade in the Vercors.

Price from:

  • 2 days formula (1 night): 185€.
  • 3 days formula (2 nights): 240€.

I also offer beautiful winter immersions in the Beaufortain mountains, discovering the Outray mountain pastures and climbing the Grand Mont d'Arêches with snowshoes.
