Our six days with Marc was a highlight of our 8 weeks in Europe. Marc is very knowledgeable of the greater Ecrins area. We snowshoed locations we could have never visited without local know-how and Marc's expertise. Very flexible with the itinerary to match conditions and client capability and preferences.
