Description

Enjoy a fantastic hike in the wilderness on this snowshoeing program across the Vallon de Javerne in Switzerland.

Situated in the municipality of Bex, in the Swiss Canton of Vaud, Vallon de Javerne is a mountain pasture that belongs to the Bernese Alps. It’s a natural area of immense beauty and a great place to explore. I invite you to discover it on this 1-day program.

From Bex, we’ll put on our snowshoes and enjoy going through the wonderful forest of this easy route. While snowshoeing, we’ll have the pleasure to see some of the local flora and fauna, including spruce tree forests with lovely birds. Once in the pasture, we’ll  contemplate some of the fantastic surrounding peaks from the range.

Although this route is not very challenging, take into account that it requires a good fitness level. Consider that we’ll spend 6 hours on our hike and face an elevation gain of around 500 meters.

So, would you like to take part in this outing to the amazing Vallon de Javerne? Then all you have to do is send your request and contact me, so we’ll begin making all the arrangements for this trip.

Another option could be this snowshoeing program that I lead in Moléson-sur-Gruyères, also in the Swiss Alps. Check it out!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Bramois on June 26th, 1983 and I have been a certified mountain guide since 2005. I grew up in a sportive and mountainous family, so since I was a child I have traveled the mountain just walking or skiing.

At the age of 12, I started participating, with my brother Didier, in a climbing camp. Therefore, discoveries and passions were connected, first climbing, then mountaineering and at lastly ice climbing.

After attending commerce school, the guide aspiring course done at the age of 19 and a tourism manager certificate, I started working in the guide profession, while keeping time to travel and enjoy my passion with my wife Noelie.

To improve my skills, I have also studied one year to get the Technician Paramedic certificate.
In 2011, I joined the rescuers-guides team at Air-Glaciers, at the same time I became the class leader in the training of Swiss guides.

Currently, still passionate and motivated, I am glad to be your companion in the most beautiful Alps routes or to discover new and remote regions.
