Snowshoeing or racquettes à neige as it is known in France has to be one of the most beautiful and environmentally friendly ways to experience the mountains. The area around Chalet Savoie Faire in the French Alps is one of the most spectacular and stunning to explore. Indeed Naves is renowned for being a remarkable winter games area.
Snowshoeing is great exercise and almost anyone can take part and is fast growing in popularity too. It’s easy to master and takes you far from the madding crowds of the pistes as well as being kind to the mountains.
The stunning views you can find when snowshoeing around the Fontaine Naves area of the Beaufortain will stay with you forever. No words can truly describe the magic of walking through sparkling fields of snow and silent forests keeping a keen look out for local wildlife and then venturing into a clearing with the whole of the Tarentaise Valley laid out before you. The delicious picnic that Nikki will have prepared for you (upon request) will taste even better after a morning’s snowshoeing!
We can arrange for our qualified and experienced guides to accompany you on your snowshoeing expeditions to help you master the technique and to ensure you experience the best this enchanting activity has to offer. Our guides can also help you discover the diverse flora and fauna in the region. Whether this is your first time on snowshoes or if you have plenty of experience we can guarantee that our knowledgeable guides will ensure you have an unforgettable holiday.
Alternatively you can set off on your own as a group following the well marked local trails. The Naves area benefits from 15km of snowshoe itineraries.
This is a “must do” activity when taking a holiday in the mountains. With snowshoes you can run across snow fields, jump over logs and from path to path and learn to run down slopes. Snowshoeing can be enjoyed by all ages and all levels of fitness.
And when you’re done for the day and happily worn out you can return to the warmth and comfort of Chalet Savoie Faire and the unbeatable hospitality that Nikki and Hugh offer. Relax in the luxurious surroundings of this beautifully restored Savoyard farmhouse and relive the adventures of the day in front of an open fire.
Guides and snowshoes can be booked through Chalet Savoie Faire – one less thing to organise for you holiday!
