Description

Take a week out of your schedule to peruse the incomparable Alpine countryside of Switzerland and head to Leysin for a week of snowshoeing! This guided program allows you to experience a winter in the Alps while enjoying a fascinating week in the heart of the pride and joy of Switzerland!

Nothing says ‘Winter Wonderland’ quite like a trip to the Alps. At the center of Europe, both geographically and metaphorically, the majestic mountains appeal to almost every single tourist across the world. And smack dab in the middle of this regal range is Switzerland, a country that epitomizes high-altitude adventure. So what better way to experience this world-class winter destination than by taking a guided snowshoeing tour in Leysin and the Swiss Alps!

With a week to appreciate the ins and outs of an iconic land mass, you will enjoy the Swiss Alps in a unique and fulfilling way. Our snowshoeing courses will lead you far from the crowds and into the compelling nooks and crannies of its alluring snowscapes. Based out of Leysin in Switzerland (near Lake Geneva to the northwest and Chamonix, France, to the southwest), you will have access to enchanting scenery at every step of the way.

I have extensive experience in the region and love sharing my knowledge with others. After a week on our program, you will feel like a local and be prepared for your next snowshoeing excursion as soon as possible. I will ensure you have a safe and unforgettable experience on a personal program that is catered to you. Let me know what you are interested in and we can craft a snowshoeing trip around your needs.

If you have schedule restrictions or needed a shorter trip that still encapsulates the magic of the Alps, I can also offer snowshoe short breaks, guiding you on up to five days of snowshoeing with up to six nights at a bed and breakfast. The choice is yours, so let’s design the dream snowshoe vacation just for you.

You should have a general level of fitness to participate in this program. No previous experience is necessary, only a passion for the Alps and a willingness to experience the stunning region!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
