Activity description

Venture into the wilderness of the Alps with a passionate guide who will help you discover the most beautiful massifs of Haute Savoie and teach you to build an igloo!

From hiking to mountaineering, Maxime can take you into the wild to unusual and sublime places. If you're a beginner, don't worry, he proposes a quick introduction to walking with snowshoes (technique, use of poles, breathing...). If you're already experts, Maxime has some sporty and alpine itineraries up his sleeves for your greatest pleasure!

In a 30 minute-drive maximum, you'll go to different spots in Plateau de Loëx, Col de Cou, Col Ratti, Col de Joux-Plane… which generally benefit from great snow quality.

The landscapes are varied and wild. You can discover the Mont Blanc, Dents du Midi or multiple panoramas on the Northern Alps (Morzine-Avoriaz, Les Gets, Portes du Soleil...).

You can either choose to spend 3 hours building an igloo, or 3 hours snowshoeing with 3 hours igloo building.

Enjoy a playful activity suitable for friends and families!

A really nice alternative to skiing. Great fun and the snow shoeing inspired us to hire some on another day.
