Highlights

 
     

    Let me take you on a snowshoeing hike in an area of Le Parc National des Ecrins which I like very much : Embrunais, 30 min driving from Gap.

    We will leave from the village of Réallon, pass by alpine chalets, mountain passes (Col de Gardette and Fourche)… and have breathtaking views on the Lac de Serre-Ponçon, one of the largest artificial lakes in Europe.

    We will go down the mountain through another path which makes this hike even more interesting. On our way to the ending point, we will enjoy the views on les Aiguilles de Chabrières which have very unique shapes.

    We will have lunch in the mountain, in a very inspiring place.

    This tour is accessible and suitable for families which spends their winter holidays in the surroundings of Gap.

    Why not leaving your ski resort (Céüze, Ancelle, Réallon, Saint Léger, Super Dévoluy, Les Orres, Orcières Merlette) and join me for a day far from the crowd ?

    If you are in the region between December and March and want to experience something unique, please send me a request and let’s start planning.

    About the Guide

     
     

    My love for the mountains, which provide me a sense of freedom, led me to leave my home town to settle in the Hautes Alpes. Born in 1967, I am married and the father of 3 girls.

    I hold a Sports Educator Certificate since 1999, a State Mountaineering Diploma and a Mountain Leader Certificate since 2000. I’m also a Mountain Rescuer since 2001.

    I have been practicing mountain activities for many years and this experience allows me to guide you in a mountain environment in complete safety. I think of myself as a mountain artisan and believe that adapting and customizing each outing according to the group and their desires is key to providing a great experience.

    My passion for the mountains and my experience as a teacher help me share my knowledge with you in a way that will allow you to take full advantage of the experience. Nature takes us back to basics and time spent in nature is fundamental in this high-tech world.

    My job allows me to get to know people from very different backgrounds. I find this very enriching and I do my best to adapt to each one of them. I also love that my profession allows me to exercise and be in contact with nature. This is key to my well-being!

    The Southern Alps are my favorite place in the world and I have been exploring them for many years. I enjoy their diversity — from the Provence to the 4-thousanders, and from its lakes to its cliffs and glaciers. The mild Mediterranean weather is the cherry on the cake!
