Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec




There are several different ways to explore the beautiful Auron area of the French Alps. And on this 3 hour snowshoeing tour, I would like to guide you on a wide loop that will allow you to see a large portion of this splendid place.

The trip will start with a short 5 minute drive from the tourist office to the beginning of the route, which includes a slight slope, but no technical difficulty to speak  of.

Even though the area is covered with snow, the creatures that call it home still often like to come out and enjoy the surroundings. As a result, you will have ample opportunity to see Auron’s impressive population of birds and other animals.

Very easy, very relaxing, and extremely scenic, this snowshoeing tour is perfect for people who like to explore. You will also get to see the peaks of the Alps from unique views that you wouldn’t get otherwise. Moreover, you will also get to see the Tinee valley and the town of Saint Etienne as well.

During the trip, I will also gladly provide you with information as to the Auron area’s rich history. I will tell you about its previous human inhabitants as well as the details of its plant life, along with other interesting facts.

So if you want to explore a gorgeous place, while learning all about it, this is the trip for you. And with its leisurely pace, there will be more than enough time to get that perfect picture as well! To enjoy this trip for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request.

I also offer a shorter, even easier version of this trip as well.

About the guide

Nature is for me a fabulous field of investigation . Colors, scents, sounds are always present and reveal us so many sensations.
My hometown is Nice on the French Riviera and I explore my region from the Mediterranean shores to the highest peaks of the Mercantour National Park. In the summer time on foot, and in the winter with snowshoeing.

I am looking forward to guiding you in my region, sharing the vision of chamois, marmots and ibexes, on the tracks of wolves, and with a golden eagle in the sky.

Richard delivered exactly what I was hoping for. The choice of route suited me perfectly; he fitted in with my timelines which was important to me and the cherry on top was that he was a delight to walk with and chat to for 3 hours. If I was here a little longer, I’d do another one and definitely will when I come back. Thank you ☺️
