1 Day

Jan - May, Oct - Dec

Open To Everyone



Located in the Mercantour National Park, Col de Salese is an ideal place for beginner snowshoe hikers. Come with me to enjoy this beautiful forest and discover the different wild animals that live there.

This trip is open to everyone! We will be snowshoeing for 4 hours and gaining an elevation of almost 500 meters. In this original trek, we’ll get to see breathtaking panoramic views of Valberg (Mount Mounier) and Isola 2000 (Mont Saint Sauveur).

This wild valley will also give us the opportunity to go around looking for traces of wild animals, such as chamois and hares. If we are lucky, we’ll even get to see wolf traces! In addition, we’ll get to enjoy a forest rich in tree varieties. The chosen trail is full of firs and larches!

It won’t only be a simple snowshoeing walk in Col de Salese, it’ll be also an interesting learning experience. I’ll teach you everything about snow and forest security.

Be sure to bring a backpack, a warm fleece, a windbreaker jacket, a liter of water, sunglasses and sunscreen, something for lunch as well as chocolate and cereal bars.

Book your trip now and let’s explore the Mercantour National Park. It’ll be my pleasure to guide you and show you the wonders of snowshoeing.

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!
