Snowshoeing in the Haut-Giffre on the heights of Samoëns

The mountain guides from the Annecy mountain guide office are offering you a snowshoeing holiday in the Haut-Giffre region above Samoëns. We're off for two days of snowshoeing on little-frequented itineraries in the Chablais massif. The first day will be spent in a forest environment before moving on to a more mineral atmosphere. After a good night's sleep at the Bostan refuge, nestling beneath the teeth of Oddaz, we'll continue our loop via the tête de Bostan.
