Terre Rouge Lakes, France, Guided Snowshoe Tour

Terre Rouge

Richard, a UIMLA certified guide, would like to take you on a 5 hour snowshoeing tour to the Terre Rouge Lakes in the Isola 2000 area of France.

Not specified


1/2 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec




On this approximately 5 hour snowshoe trek, I would like to guide you to the beautiful Terre Rouge lakes.

As long as the weather and snow conditions are agreeable, we should have no problem making our way to the Terre Rouge lakes. Snowshoeing through the gorgeous natural surroundings of Isola 2000, we will take a casual pace. Hence giving you every opportunity to observe the breathtaking scenery.  Also, don’t be surprised if you catch a glimpse of the area’s abundant wildlife, including chamois.

We will descent approximately 400 metres during the hike. However, the progression is moderate. So don’t worry if you are not a snowshoeing expert. This is not a difficult trip, and is perfect for people who just want to enjoy exploring a beautiful, peaceful hike through a truly naturalistic place. But the pace is a little more active than other trips I guide in the area, so you should be in good physical condition.

Finally, at the conclusion of the route, we will cross the Italian border. There you will get to see the sensational Terre Rouge lakes. You will get plenty of time to admire not only the lakes, but the area as well, for there is a lot of history there, particularly Italian military history. Afterwards, we will make our way back. Thus concluding this wonderful tour.

Snowshoeing is an excellent activity. It’s not too strenuous and allows you to immerse yourself in nature, most of which is slumbering under the calm of winter. So send me a request, come to Isola 2000, and let me take you to the Terre Rouge lakes.

I also lead an even easier 3 hour snowshoeing tour through the Isola 2000 area as well.



There are comfortable accommodation options around the Isola 2000 area that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

Nature is for me a fabulous field of investigation . Colors, scents, sounds are always present and reveal us so many sensations.
My hometown is Nice on the French Riviera and I explore my region from the Mediterranean shores to the highest peaks of the Mercantour National Park. In the summer time on foot, and in the winter with snowshoeing.

I am looking forward to guiding you in my region, sharing the vision of chamois, marmots and ibexes, on the tracks of wolves, and with a golden eagle in the sky.

Richard delivered exactly what I was hoping for. The choice of route suited me perfectly; he fitted in with my timelines which was important to me and the cherry on top was that he was a delight to walk with and chat to for 3 hours. If I was here a little longer, I’d do another one and definitely will when I come back. Thank you ☺️
