Description

Go on a very beautiful 6-day snowshoe trek across the Vercors massif, which is suitable for good hikers.

Starting from Corrençon-en-Vercors, you will go up to the limestone ridges of the Diois through the Vercors Regional Natural Park.

Accommodation in comfortable gîtes allows you to breathe and spend convivial evenings! The portage is limited to the day's stuff.

The + of this crossing: in the heart of the Hauts-Plateaux Nature Reserve, similar in conditions to the Nordic atmosphere, you will spend your last night in a former sheepfold which has been converted and is very warm.
