Snowshoeing in the Queyras

Snowshoeing in the Queyras. 1-day trip w/ a UIMLA certified mountain guide. I propose to do it together with snowshoes, in large areas of Queyra.

Not specified

Alps

1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec


Description

Such a wide variety of landscapes, natural environments, architectural diversity in such a  small territory explains the Queyras Nature Regional Park ranking. And there is nothing like a “hiker” to exceed visitor status, be truly integrated into the landscape. I therefore propose to be this hiker to leave together with snowshoes, in large areas of Queyras.

Different options and locations are possible. Here are some:

Ceillac, Mirroir Lake, in the Font Sancte massif (3385 m). On the North side, 2200 m, still snowy, the site is one of the most suitable for snowshoeing. I have accompanied groups several times a week for over 20 years and I never get tired of it. I program half day outings.

Ceillac, the Jardin Secret. A true harmony from valley to valley along the Cascade stream with the water flowing under the ice: magical! Only snowshoeing we can feel the nature, gently, being in the landscape rather than facing the landscape.

A formula I also like a lot is the snowshoe hiking and  barbecue. A unique moment of conviviality, in the countryside, safely, making a fire in the snow and preparing a barbecue, yes, it’s possible!

Contact me if you will spend your next vacation in the Queyras. We can go together to explore this beautiful area.

About the guide

I am a mountain leader in Queyras, I propose hikes and travels to places which I am deeply fond of and I know very well: Queyras and its bordering valleys, the Calanques, Nepal, Crete, Kosovo and Macedonia.
If you have already organised your trip (accommodation, transports, etc), I can propose a day or half day hiking or snowshoeing. Otherwise, we can design together a project adjusted to your desires, based on the trips presented below.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
