Highlights

 
     

    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.
