Snowshoeing week-end around Annecy

Come and experience a unique snowshoe trek in the middle of winter. The plateau des Glières is the ideal place for this activity. The terrain is hilly and soft. The landscapes are beautiful and the place is wild. All the conditions are there to escape and discover nature. We will spend the night in an old mountain pasture farm and share a good Savoyard meal. For the most motivated, we will go for a walk in the moonlight and maybe we will have the chance to observe animals...

Day 1 : La montagne des Auges    Up 400m Down 400m     6h00 walking

The first day of the hike begins with a loop on the Glières plateau. Depending on the weather and snow conditions, we will reach the Auges mountain, which will offer us a breathtaking panorama of Mont Blanc and the Aravis. The lunch break will take place in an old mountain pasture farm where we will be able to taste the typical Savoyard products (potato fritters, tartiflette, etc.)

Overnight in a cottage (in a dormitory).

Day 2 : La montagne des Frêtes   Up 400m Down 400m    6h00 walking

On the second day, we will head for the mountain of frêtes. We will travel off-road in the snow-laden spruce forest in search of animal track. Your guide will explain the basics of building a snow shelter. After a picnic in the middle of nature, it will be time to find your way back.

Walking times are calculated from an average speed defined in the hiking difficulty levels sheet. These are indicative times that do not include breaks.
