Home to both the fantastic Alps and the Pyrenees, France has some fantastic mountainous terrain with great snow coverage. Snowshoeing in this region allows you to reach areas you wouldn’t be able to reach on a hike giving you better access to exceptional nature and sights.
For great snowshoeing experiences, base yourself in Chamonix in the heart of the French Alps. From there you can access great trips around the Mont Blanc area. You can take a multi-day trip that will take you around Italy, France and Switzerland. The Vosges Mountains in eastern France are another great spot for the stunning wilderness found there. Finally, the Préalpes d’Azur in the south is an excellent snowshoeing location offering lots of nature.
In the best snowshoeing areas winter temperatures sit around a minimum average temperature of -8°C and a maximum average temperature of 4°C.
Fly to Paris then connect onwards with internal flights or trains.
For snowshoeing January and February are great months to visit.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
