Snowshoeing tour in the Bargy massif

Jeremy, UIMLA mountain leader, organizes a 3-day snowshoeing tour in the Bargy massif, in Haute Savoie, including winter camping in a fantastic setting.

Not specified

Alps

3 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec


Description

I invite you to join me for a unique experience in winter camping in the Bargy Haute Savoie massif.

I'll take you for three days (ideal for a long weekend) in snowshoes to the heart of the Northern Alps, to a Natura 2000 area. Indeed, it's a very wild area between Lake Béni, the Plateau Cenise and Rochers Leschaux at 2000m altitude. You will move on snowshoes, sleeping in a teepee and camping.

A great opportunity to live an Arctic adventure, experiencing similar conditions. But you are in the Alps, in a pristine and virgin nature. Besides, it's the territory of the bearded vulture, the largest vulture in Europe, ibex and chamois.

The program and its duration are flexible. You can find below an indicative example of the schedule over three days.

The snow, weather conditions and the level of the participants will determine the final route. I may have to modify it for these reasons.

Come with friends and/or family to live this magical moment! Everyone will keep unforgettable memories, both kids and adults.

If this adventure in the Bargy mountain range interests you, I invite you to contact me. I will be happy to guide you in this beautiful massif, in the heart of winter, and give you a taste of a polar expedition. I also love hiking when there is no snow, check out this hike with mules in Haute Savoie.

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
