Snowshoeing in the Alps

Snowshoeing Holidays in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps

Join us this winter and enjoy fabulous snowshoeing in Chamonix, or try one of our explorer trips to Italy or Switzerland. Snowshoeing is simply winter walking made easier! Walking on snowshoes is an ancient method of winter travel, but today snowshoeing in the Alps has a new lease of life as a form of recreation. Snowshoeing is the perfect way to explore both mountains and valleys of the Alps. It can be a magical experience of silent forests, beautiful mountains and stunning view.

Snowshoeing using the latest lightweight equipment has opened up a whole new world to those who previously thought mountain walking was a summer activity! Snowshoeing is not technical or complicated and allows access to a wonderful snow covered playground. You don't need any prior experience to snowshoe in the Alps, just some warm clothes and a sense of adventure!

Introduction to Snowshoeing & Cross Country Skiing 

Combine this Snowshoe Long Weekend with either an Italian Cross Country Ski Break or a Skate Ski Break for a multi-activity winter week. See our Trip Planner for details. (Details for winter 2019 coming soon).

Many thanks for a wonderful time. Lindsay was knowledgeable, caring, safety conscious and fun to be with - in short a great leader. This was our first snowshoeing experience. We had a fabulous three days around Chamonix and would highly recommend Tracks and Trails. We will be back. Many thanks until the next time!
