Infos & Booking


This winter, treat yourself to a snowshoeing holiday that is 100% nature!

Between the Isère and the Drôme departments, the Vercors massif meets all the expectations that nature lovers could have: unspoilt wilderness, typical forests, wild plateaus, ice cascades and cave porches, grandiose landscapes and panoramas, easy hiking conditions in the heart of an alpine relief.

As soon as the Vercors puts on its white cover, another world opens up to the eye: vast glittering spaces bathed in the colours and lights of winter, where it is good to observe life in slow motion by moving off the paths with snowshoes in virgin snow, except the traces of the wildlife. The hikes are easy, with daily positive altitude differences between 200 and 400 meters.

The objective of this workshop is to teach you how to take snow pictures, by avoiding the traps set by this environment with its particular luminosity. Snow in all its states, from crystals to ice, and in all light conditions, will have no more secrets for you.

We will cover all the theoretical elements necessary for shooting snow landscapes:

  • Personalized advice and support for the realization of your own photographic reportage.
  • Technical mastery of your camera and image composition.
  • Daily analysis in the classroom and sharing of the images obtained.

If you are interested in photo trips, why not let yourself be tempted by these stays in the countryside of Tuscany, in the Bardenas desert, in the Gran Paradiso National Park, in the sea and mountain atmosphere of Corsica or in the fjords and highlands of Iceland?

Here are some ideas of destinations:
