Highlights

 
     

    This 3-day Snowshoeing at la Grave will take you to a unique and magical adventure in the heart of La Meije massif.

    La Grave is a small French town in the High Alps province. It is known as one of the most beautiful and traditional towns in France.

    And I dare you to come snowshoeing to some of its best spots. I’ll guide you to discover the gentle mountain sceneries and make slips in the snow. We’ll escape into the silence of a magical forest and follow the animal traces. And we’ll enjoy the quietness and magic of winter, or just spend a warm and friendly time together.

    This program can be adapted depending on weather conditions, mountain conditions, snow and participants. The mountain guide is the only person that can make changes to the program related to the safety or the group.

    I invite you to send me a request if you want to spend some days here next winter. It will be my pleasure to take you to discover the secrets of this wonderful place, my favourite in the Alps.

    And if you want to try a summer hike, please take a look at my Hiking in the Ecrins National Park.

    About the Guide

     
     

    Whilst born in Slovakia I have lived in France since 2005 in the lovely village of la Grave in the Hautes Alpes. Every day, summer; autumn; winter and spring, I love to discover the fauna and flora of this changing mountain environment through all outdoor activities and particularly Nordic Walking, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Snowshoeing and Hiking.
    I graduated in France as an International Mountain Leader, Mountain Bike and Nordic Walking Guide in 2012.
    I have a Masters Degree in Environmental Sciences (1997), Comenius University (Bratislava, Slovakia) and I take joy when I can share my knowledge of the natural mountain environment including the fauna and flora, medicinal and edible plants and how we can use them. I know all those secret, special places to see the best these mountains have to offer.
    I represented Slovakia as a member of the National Orienteering team. The experience of practicing sport at such a high level allows me to help you get in shape and enjoy the mountains. Whatever your fitness level I can help you exceed your own expectations. Whether you are slow and unfit but want to spend time in the mountains, recovering from injury and missing the environment or a super fit athlete I can offer a package designed for you.
    Through my professional experience as a Marketing manager for 7 years I can also offer seminars, photo shoots of outdoor activities, team building and tailored made expeditions’ for all organisations.
