Six days of guided snowshoe walking in the Haute Maurienne valley between the Vanoise National Park and the Italian frontier mountains. A snowshoe holiday in an exceptional and unspoilt area where the valley bottom is already at 1800m of altitude.
Our snowshoe walks explore much of the Haute Maurienne valley and normally include a walk to the Col de Mont Cenis on the French-Italian border. We will explore remote valleys including a walk to the hamlet of L’Ecot at the head of the valley beyond Bonneval-sur-Arc.
The snowshoe walking will take us along the banks of the River Arc that has it’s source at the valley’s head. We will discover the “Chemin de Petit Bonheur” as it threads its way along the valley. We will discover the Monolithe between the villages of Sardiere and Aussois nestling on the southern slopes of the Vanoise amongst varied pine forests.
Your base for the snowshoe holiday will be a very comfortable hotel in the small village of Lanslevillard.
