Not specified


1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec


Join me in this snowshoeing hike in the Mercantour National Park and the Préalpes d’Azur Natural Park. We will be in the heart o the Alpes-Maritimes.

The best way yo enjoy a hike on snowshoes is with some guidance!

During the winter the light is beautiful in the Southern Alps. Often the sky remains clear the whole day. And as spring comes, the longer days allow us to take longer tours, also with warmer temperatures.

I can provide snowshoes and poles if you don’t have your own.

Of course I can adapt the difficulty of the trip to your level. Whether it’s your first time or you or you are a regular, there are great paths.

Some of my favourite sites in and around Mercantour include: Boréon in (Saint-Martin Vésubie), Saint Dalmas le Selvage (Tinée), Turini Camp d’Argent Peira CavaValberg et Beuil (Cians), Val d’AllosRoubion  (Haut Verdon), Estenc, Val Pelens or Colle Saint-Michel (Haut Var valley).

Besides, in the Préalpes d’Azur I love going to Gréolières les Neiges, CailleAndon, l’Audibergue, Caussols, ThorencSoleilhas and Vauplane.

From December until April, each winter I do this tour. We can go any day!

About the guide

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.

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!
