Description

This weekend is a cocktail of snowshoe hikes and relaxation, with outdoor hot bath (Finnish bath type) in a water at 38° and sauna. Sauna and bath are heated by a large wood stove and the water used is spring water.  A family welcome is offered at the guide's lodge, which enjoys a privileged location with 300 days of sunshine per year and a central location.

You will live two days far from the "factory" resorts for a more authentic stay! You will be transported by minibus to the start of the snowshoe hikes. Thus, you will taste a diversity of landscapes: the Céüse massif resembling a disemboweled volcano and offering all along its cornice a panorama on the Hautes-Alpes, and the wild valleys of Gap hinterland... You can also expect to discover a tasty family cooking. You will relax in the outdoor hot tub and warm up by the monumental tiled stove.
