Description

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!

Did you find this program interesting? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request as it will be my pleasure to guide you in this place I know so well. 

I organize group tours at specific dates (see below) and private tours at your best convenience. For a private trip, the price will depend on the number of participants.

About the guide

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.
