Description

Discover the wilderness of Les Vosges during a 2-day snowshoeing trip in the heart of the local forests and snowy stubble. The perfect weekend in the outdoor after an intense week at work. 

Moments of relaxation and breath of fresh air will be ensured for these 2 days in Les Vosges! You will enjoy the pleasure of walking on snow and admire the unique landscapes that nature offers during the winter.

All the meals served during the snowshoeing trip are local and include traditional products selected by myself.

I’m organizing several weekends from January till March. You can join a group or set up yours. The trip takes place in the surroundings of Gerardmer – La Bresse.

If you have 5 minutes, I invite you to read the story of Guenael, who joined me for a snowshoeing weekend in les Vosges in February 2017.

My objective is to provide you with a real LOCAL EXPERIENCE.

We should finish on Sunday around 5pm so that you have the time to go back home before starting a new week.

Feel free to send me a request ! It will be my great pleasure to let you discover the Vosges range and its wonders.

I organize group tours at specific dates (see below) and private tours at your best convenience. For a private trip, the price will depend on the number of participants.

Accommodation

We will stay in a traditional mountain hostel. Refuge du Sotré or Gazon Rouge could be one of them (based on the final itinerary that I'll define).

Disclaimer

For the group departure, I need a minimum of 6 people to guarantee the departure. You'll be notified the latest 21 days before the starting date in case I need to cancel because of a lack of participants. Your money will then be transferred back. This trip is organized with the collaboration of "Association de tourisme S.E.R.A.C." (ATOUT France IM 073.10.0023)
