In the heart of the Mercantour National Park, discover the wild Haute Tinée Valley. Through a walk across the valley, you can admire several beautiful lakes and meadows. You will also get to see a gorgeous panoramic view of the highest summits of the region.

With 685 kilometers in length and near the Italian border in southern France, the Mercantour National Park goes through the Maritime Alps and the Alpes de Haute-Provence. It is one of the ten national parks in France and covers an area of seven valleys and 28 villages.

In the winter, the park turns into white and becomes a great place to enjoy and share with the entire family. The Haute Tinée Valley is one of the main winter sports centers in the Maritime Alps.

During this snowshoeing tour, we will explore the Millefonts Valley. We will reach the Gros Lake (2,375 meters), the highest of the glacial Millefonts Lakes. These lakes are located in the Valdeblore community. One possible variant for this tour is going through the Col Ferrière (2,484 meters) also in the Valdeblore area.

In addition, this program does not involve a technical challenge and is accessible for children too. Consider that it will take us about 4 hours and that we will must face and elevation gain of 500 meters. If needed, we can provide you with the necessary equipment.  

Have you ever tried snowshoeing? Come with me the next winter and explore the Mercantour National Park with your family! I can guarantee you will love the Haute Tinée!

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!
