On this 5 hour snowshoeing tour, I would like to take you to the beautiful Saint Dalmas village.

This snowshoeing trek will take you through the amazing Mercantour national park. Located in the Alps of France, you will get to enjoy amazing views of snow covered trees and snow capped peaks. You will also get to see plenty of traces of the expansive area’s wildlife as well. A true journey through nature, you will get to explore a world that is full of beauty and intrigue.

We will journey high up in the park. This will enable you to get some spectacular, far reaching views of the area. And because Saint Dalmas village is the highest village in the Alpes-Martimes, once we reach the pinnacle of the trip, the views will be even better!

Along the way, we will stop for a lunch break at a lovely wood cabin. Hot drinks will also be served to warm you up! This will give you a chance to catch your breath and take a look around. Afterwards, we will continue our journey to Saint Dalmas.

You do not require any technical experience to participate on this trip. However, since we will be trekking for approximately 5 hours, you should be in good enough physical condition to maintain the pace.

Anytime you get a chance to explore nature, it is an opportunity well worth enjoying. And on this day trip, I would be happy to show you a great place in the Alps of France. So if you would like to join me on this adventure to Saint Dalmas, just send me a request.

I also offer an even easier, shorter version of this trip as well.



There are comfortable accommodation options in the area that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

Nature is for me a fabulous field of investigation . Colors, scents, sounds are always present and reveal us so many sensations.
My hometown is Nice on the French Riviera and I explore my region from the Mediterranean shores to the highest peaks of the Mercantour National Park. In the summer time on foot, and in the winter with snowshoeing.

I am looking forward to guiding you in my region, sharing the vision of chamois, marmots and ibexes, on the tracks of wolves, and with a golden eagle in the sky.

Richard delivered exactly what I was hoping for. The choice of route suited me perfectly; he fitted in with my timelines which was important to me and the cherry on top was that he was a delight to walk with and chat to for 3 hours. If I was here a little longer, I’d do another one and definitely will when I come back. Thank you ☺️
