Infos & Booking


I propose you to leave, the time of a weekend, to the surroundings of Gap for a discovery snowshoeing stay.

This one is mainly aimed at people who want to discover the snowshoeing activity and who are not especially a great sportsman/sportswoman. The efforts are not violent and the differences in altitude are modest.

The main thing is of course to have fun and enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Champsaur valley, under the sun of the Hautes-Alpes, while walking at your own pace!


  • 310€ per person.
  • Group of 4 people: 1200€ or 300€ per person.
  • Group of 8 people: 1520€ or 190€ per person.
  • 15% discount on the stays of January.

If you want to enjoy the winter mountains for a longer time, I propose a 4 days snowshoeing trip in the Champsaur or a week to discover different massifs of the Hautes-Alpes.
