Description

Discover the beautiful Southern French Alps with this 4-day snowshoeing program. Over these days, we will be based in Saint-Véran, the highest village in Europe! Every day, we will discover a different corner of the fabulous Queyras Regional Park. This is a great experience for which you don’t need previous experience.

For this program, we will be staying at the quaint Le Grand Tétras Hotel in the heart Saint-Véran. This accommodation counts with all the comforts that make a stay super relaxing. This includes free access to the sauna and sports room, great ways to unwind after an exciting snowshoeing day. Different type of rooms available.

On this tour, I will guide you across the impressive views of the different valleys of the Queyras. Always making a point of the importance of responsible tourism and sustainable development.

There will also be time to meet the locals and eat dinner made from local productions.

Groups on this program will be between 5 and 13 guests. Snowshoes and the safety gear will be provided by me, included in the price.

Also, you don’t need to have previous snowshoeing experience to come along on this program. The total walking time per day will be 4 to 5 hours. And the daily altitude gain will be between 300 and 600 m. You will just need to be able to carry your own small backpack for the day (30 to 40 liters recommended). See “Extra Information” below for more details.

Have a look at a detailed itinerary below. This is an example: the order of the walks is subject change to make the best of the snow conditions.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
