Description

Why don’t you come with me to this 2-day winter photo and snowshoeing trip in Haute Savoie? A combination of two great and fun activities in the same trip!

This amazing winter trip I am proposing you today is a fantastic opportunity to explore your artistic side and, at the same time, discover the secret places of the Val d’Arly in Haute Savoie. This valley lies between the massifs of Beaufortain, Aravis and Bauges, on the border of Savoie and Haute Savoie, in the French Alps.

During these 2 days, we’ll put our snowshoes on and let the landscape surprise us. On the way, you will find the best spots of the region and capture these moments with your camera. As a professional mountain photographer I will help you to reach the most outstanding sceneries of Haute Savoie.

They will be 2 days of pure shots and stunning paths. In addition to that, this trip takes place in small groups of participants. In that way, I can give you a more personalized photographic and technical advice and make you take the best from this snowshoe adventure.

Finally, at the bottom of this description you can read a sample itinerary of this weekend program in Haute Savoie. Please take into account that I can adapt any item to your wishes, expectations and technical level.

For any other question or if you want to book your place, all you have to do is fill out the form. I will be here waiting for your contact. I am ready to make you live a unique and different trip in the French Alps. 

Itinerary

Day 1: FIRST SHOTS IN THE VALLEY

Presentation and briefing about the expectations of the trip. I can give you some lessons of the use of your camera. We leave the starting point by snowshoes and we’ll take the first photos in a natural environment. During the photo session I will teach you how to adjust your camera and take the best pictures without the automatic mode. We can also exchange photos with the other members of the group.
Then it’s time for a picnic lunch and a break. After that, we will continue in the search of new sites in Haute Savoie.

In the afternoon, we’ll snowshoe to the mountain hut where we’ll spend the night.

Day 2: MORE SNOWSHOEING AND PICTURES

Early in the morning we’ll meet to enjoy the morning lights, taking advantage of the beautiful sunshine in the snow-capped peaks.
According to your photos of the Day 1, we can look for different landscapes.
Return to the starting point at around 16 hs and end of the program.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
