Snowshoeing week-end on the Glières plateau

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.
