Description

Try this snowshoeing course in the Tarentaise valley. From Sunday to Friday, it includes 5 days and a half of hiking, plus a night in a refuge.

This week of alpine snowshoeing is an opportunity to discover the Meribel valley and the Vanoise massif, between mountain forests and wide open spaces, with different panoramas every day.

All along this week, I will know how to share my passion and my mountain culture.

I also propose during winter other snowshoeing courses of easy level (snowshoeing "discovery" course) and intermediate level (snowshoeing "escape" course), always in Méribel, and an unforgettable evening of snowshoeing, fondue and igloo.
