1 half day
From 14 years-old and up

Get deep and discover the un-pisted mountain paths across Les Arcs and Beaufortain with endurance snowshoeing excursions, courtesy of Les Balades du Colporteur.

Leave your skis back at the chalet and push your limits with traditional snowshoeing endurance trips in the wild backcountry of Les Arcs and Beaufortain...

A classic alpine sport that demands a high level of physical perseverance, charting the endless winter of Les Arcs and Beaufortain offers true mountain nomads a chance to explore the wild pine forests and summit paths with an experienced mountain guide.

Les Balades du Colporteur offers endurance snowshoeing excursions across the Les Arcs and Beaufortain mountain ranges - two popular destinations for traditional winter sports thanks to the accessible funicular that connect Bourg-Saint-Maurice to Les Arcs 1600 & 1800.

Offering 5 guided routes that span over 7,000km of un- pisted and inaccessible mountain terrain, each excursion is tailored to overall group ability and skill - offering serious winter nomads a chance to ascend through diverse landscapes and feel the thrill of downhill riding on modern snowshoes. A high-intensity sport, endurance snowshoeing requires good physical fitness but minimal technical experience.

Organised depending on weather conditions and snowfall, expect deep snow drifts, undulating mountain paths and thick forests.
