Activities - Snowshoeing
You can also browse slide shows of some of the snowshoe walks in the area at Undiscovered Alps Snowshoeing in the Alps Collection
and see a few clips of Snowshoeing Fun in the Alps
Mountains in the winter are a truly spectacular sight and there is no better way to take in the views than on foot - well snow feet!
Snowshoeing is one of the most popular winter activities in Champsaur and Valgaudemar. It's very easy to do and is great fun for all ages and abilities. Have a read of the highlights of our New Years 2011 Snowshoe Trip.
You strap racket shaped attachments to your walking boots and once you've mastered the technique (levelling your weight over the shoes), pristine winter wonderlands become accessible to all - perfect for escaping the hubbub of the ski resorts.
If you like walking and would like to see the Alps in winter then you will love snowshoeing.
We can organise a week of guided snow shoe walks for you with an experienced local guide. Have a look at our snowshoeing holiday offers
Or you might want to consider trying snowshoeing as part of a multi activity holiday
, which again we can organise for you. Our holidays also allow you to combine numerous activities together. So you could try our fabulous cross country skiing
If you want to go it alone then we can arrange for your snowshoes and poles to be waiting for you at your accommodation. However, please note that the risk of avalanche in the mountains in winter is very real and we would recommend you have experience of the mountains in winter before venturing out without a guide.
