Cians Valley (Mercantour) guided snowshoeing trip

Amaze yourself with the unique white landscape of the Cians Valley. Come and discover it along with Fabrice, local UIMLA-certified mountain leader.

Not specified


1 Day

All year




Between the Var River and its branch, the Cians, the most spectacular landscape makes its appearance. Inside the Mercantour National Park, the Cians Valley offers a wide and unusual variety of natural phenomena.

We will start our snowshoeing tour in the Col de la Couillole (1,678 meters), between the Roubion and Beuil communities, in the Maritime Alps region. 

During the tour, you will also be able to admire the incredible Mounier Mount. Full of limestones, the Mounier is one of the most famous peaks in the Maritime Alps with 2,817 meters above sea level.

Furthermore, you will enjoy the beauty of the Gorges du Cians. Due to the erosion of the Cians River, these wonderful gorges combine the red color from the rocks with the sparkling blue from the waters. In winter, the mixture of red, cyan and white transforms this valley into an unique natural spectacle.

If you want to take this snowshoeing tour, remember that a medium level of fitness and experience is mandatory. Take into account that the tour lasts 5 hours and that we will be walking through 500 meters of altitude change.

Mountain Leader

My passion is hiking and it has been since I was a child. I am a Mountain Leader, ready to make you gain altitude!
My goal is to live adventures in a wild nature. And there are as many possibilities as varied landscapes and seasons!
Always looking for new spaces, privileged and authentic moments, a preserved and wild nature... It's above all about plenitude and contemplation, trying each time to understand the beauty of the sceneries.
I am a former lawyer, also ski patroller specialized in nivology and meteorology. I cross the massif ski touring during the winter for my own pleasure.

What people are saying about Fabrice


I booked a tour with Fabrice on late May, definitely the highlight of my holiday, we went on a hike around Casterino It was a relaxed hike with great sights of mountain forests and lakes, I got to see some of the local fauna and flora of the park, ibex, marmots, chamois, although not as much as they would be in the area, possibly because of the wolfs (we saw some footprints). Overall it is a great way to see the surroundings. I would definitely recommend Fabrice as a guide for your next hike!
