Spend a wonderful weekend snowshoeing in the beautiful Vosges massif with Philippe, UIMLA certified mountain leader, sleeping in an authentic mountain inn. Get immersed in the calm environment of snow and forests.


2 Days

Jan - Mar




The Vosges massif, in the east of France, is a beautiful and wild destination that during the winter offers us abundant snow. Join me for a weekend and let’s enjoy 2 fantastic snowshoeing days together!

The natural environment is very well preserved. During the winter we will not see as many animals as in warmer months. This gives the region a particular feel of isolation. But we are not alone! There is still plenty of wildlife around. And the slower rhythm of snowshoeing, compared to other more active disciplines, is ideal to take in all the beauty.

If you love taking the time to appreciate a particular landscape, or if you are a photography enthusiast, you cannot miss these 2 days exploring the Vosges massif.

We will spend the night in an authentic mountain inn, where we will share the evening in a cozy environment. And nature will be all around us!

About the guide

Mountain Leader

I'm a UIMLA-certified leader and have been sharing my passion for nature and the mountains for the last 30 years. I love to venture into isolated and quiet places to discover new environments, new panoramas...everything nature has to offer.

I love to share these precious moments during hikes or treks and help you discover life's subtleties by walking towards the unknown, both in France and abroad. This is why I became a mountain leader.

Hiking will be the starting point of all our adventures and will allow us to cook wild plants or mushrooms, watch the stars at night, draw, photograph or film all that is ephemeral in nature. But we will also find the time to relax and take in a beautiful moment.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
