Description

The Vercors Massif belongs to the Alps and is in the Auvergne region of France, near Grenoble. Due to its great amount of snow, it’s the perfect area to enjoy snowshoeing. Join me on this 4-day adventure and explore this fantastic place with your snowshoes on!

On this program, you’ll discover a very interesting spot from different perspectives. Vercors Massif offers an amazing winter landscape where we’ll get to see part of the local flora and fauna. Additionally, I’ll tell you about the massif’s geology and we’ll follow the footprints of the animals. Apart from its natural attractions, this area has historical importance for being one of the spots where the French resistance gathered. Furthermore, after snowshoeing, we’ll try some of the delicious local meals and products.

As for the itinerary, on day 1, we’ll reach Vassieux-en-Vercors from Switzerland. Then, on day 2, we’ll explore Les Hauts Plateaux or Font d’Urle, according to weather. Day 3 will be the day of Vassieux and its beautiful landscapes. Finally, on day 4, we’ll go to Pic Saint Michel and return to Switzerland.

Please, take into account that the program is aimed at intermediate participants with prior snowshoeing experience. However, we’ll adapt the itinerary according to the group’s level. Also, consider that you can either join a group in the date detailed below or you can book a private tour with flexible dates.

So does this experience in the Vercors Massif sound interesting to you? Then don’t miss this opportunity and send the request to book your place. You won’t regret your choice!

Another option could be this hiking program that I lead across the Queyras Regional Natural Park, also in France. Check it out!

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.
