The Vosges massif is a fantastic playground for snowshoeing. In this occasion I invite you to the Lac Blanc region, and in particular to the Gazon du Faing. Join me for a splendid snowshoeing day!
Located on the Lorraine side of the great ridge of the Vosges, near the Calvaire pass, we find the Tanet – Gazon du Faing Natural Reserve. There are 505 hectares of protected terrain, where nature is very well preserved. The mountain forests are splendid, and what can be best than to explore them with our snowshoes on?
The Gazon du Faing is one of the 10 highest summits in the Vosges massif. From the top of it, the views over the Lac Blanc and the surrounding peaks is amazing.
We will have lunch in a lodge and rest for a while to enjoy the rest of the day. In total, during the day we will walk for 10 kilometers. The positive altitude change is 250 meters.
Do you find this snowshoeing proposal tempting? Then please send me a request to book this trip! It will be my pleasure to guide you there. Another beautiful snowshoeing option in the area of Lac Blanc is this one in Le Grand Brézouard, check it out!

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.
