Highlights

 
     
    The village of Samoens is a gorgeous place in the Alps of French. Definitely worth a visit, the village will also act as the base of this full day snowshoeing adventure.

    Throughout the day, you will get to explore, appreciate and enjoy the array of trails and sensational scenery around the village of Samoens. Based on several factors, ranging from your skill level to weather and snow conditions, I will select the best trail for you. Thus ensuring you have a snowshoeing trip that you will never forget.

    There is an abundance of spectacular highlights that you will get to admire along the trail we have selected. Several peaks, including La Bourgeoise (1,770m), the Pointe de la Golese (1,835m), the Pointe Ratti (1,923) and much more await you. You will also get to bask in the sight of the famed Mont Blanc massif (4,810m). There is also the possibility of trekking through the Bostan valley as well.

    While this trip is open to people of varying skill levels, it is important that all participants are in good physical condition. That is because we will be trekking for approximately 6 hours, covering nearly 10 kilometers.

    Snowshoeing in the area surrounding the village of Samoens is a tremendous experience. To enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request. I know you’ll have an amazing day.

    Would you like to snowshoe around the Samoen’s area for more than one day? Then come and join me on this week long version of the trip.

    We booked 3 full days of private showshoeing in Chamonix. Emma Jack was very responsive to our inquiry during booking and our emails leading up to our trip. We were paired with a local guide, Sebastian, who was very knowledgeable about the Chamonix area and picked the perfect spots for us to snowshoe each day based on the weather and snowfall accumulation. I highly recommend booking your trip with Emma Jack and would use her again if we return.
