Infos & Booking


I propose you to leave for a 2-day very beautiful winter immersion, snowshoeing around the magnificent and majestic Aiguille du Fruit in the Vanoise National Park.

During this crossing from Courchevel to Méribel, two very famous ski resorts, you will discover a wild itinerary made of wide open spaces, in the heart of the Tarentaise valley in Savoie. You will also have the opportunity to spend the night in the middle of the mountains, in an unguarded hut.

If the schedulded dates do not suit you, do not hesitate to propose me yours. I can arrange the tour for you and for your group of hikers.

For gourmets, I also offer snowshoeing and igloo fondue evenings in Méribel throughout the winter.

And if you like snowy treks, I propose other magnificent itineraries in the region:
