Mont Donon is the highest peak in the northern Vosges. It is 1009 meters high, and can be found at the border between the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine. Join me for a snowshoeing day in this unique destination!
Since prehistoric times, a sacred character has been attributed to Donon. And this distinctiveness will stay forever. It is away from everything, this promoting the development of legends, mixing myth and reality. The Romans, mysteriously seduced, devote the site to Mercury.
So I guess it is clear that this is a place like no other for snowshoeing. If the destination has already so many interesting features, imagine it covered in snow. And furthermore, picture yourself exploring the area with the calmness that snowshoeing provides. It will be an unforgettable experience!
We will have lunch in a lodge, or alternatively stop for a picnic. In total we will traverse 5.5 kilometers and ascend 380 meters.
We can go snowshoeing there for either a day or a half-day. If you prefer the latter, ask me for more information about the price.
Are you tempted to discover the Donon massif covered in snow? Then book this snowshoeing trip and let’s meet there! And if you want to combine it with other snowshoeing programs in the Vosges massif, check out the ones I offer in Hohneck or Le Gazon du Faing.

Based in the Vosges, between the Pierre Percee and the Donon Lakes, I offer you to join me on different activities to explore the nature around us. From hiking to snowshoeing, and from mountain biking to trail running, I'll take you to all the best spots in my home mountains, as well as all over France.
I'm a certified Mountain Leader and a certified Sports Instructor, specialized in Rock Climbing. I'm also a certified Mountain Bike instructor. If I'm not available to guide you, I'll have one of the mountain leaders in my team (Antoine, Pascal, Daniel, Vincent or Lionel) take you on a wonderful tour of the area.
