Description

An absolute highlight of the Alps of France, the Chamonix valley is a fantastic place to visit, explore and enjoy. And on this trip, I would like to provide you with a truly unique manner which you can enjoy this great place, a half-day, moonlight snowshoeing trek.

From 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm, you will get to trek on a lovely trail, while admiring the gorgeous Chamonix scenery under the gleam of star and moonlight. Much different at night than during the day, the landscape seems even more peaceful in the evening. It has a sheen, a magical glint, that only comes out after the sun sets. And it creates an atmosphere that has to be seen to be believed.

The trek is not very strenuous. It is more about enjoying the scenery and the snowshoeing experience, as opposed to rigorously trying to challenge you. As a result, this trip is ideal for people of all skill levels. So no matter if you’ve never snowshoed before, or are an expert, you can enjoy this great trip. However, participants should be in good physical condition.

This trip includes everything you need, from your personal snowshoeing equipment to transportation from your hotel. That means all you have you to bring on this trip is enthusiasm to see the Chamonix valley under the moon and stars.

If this unique trip sounds like something you think you want to participate in, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

I also offer a full day, private snowshoeing tour through Chamonix, which you can enjoy here.
