- Explore an undiscovered corner of the Alps

Meaning 'covered in snow', the Nevache Valley arguably boasts the most snow in the Southern Alps and is the perfect location for a challenging snowshoe expedition. The charming village of Nevache has plenty of original alpine chalets, and a superb 15th Century church of Saint Marcellin. Accessing such remote mountainous terrain is a tough physical challenge, but your efforts will be constantly rewarded with inspiring panoramic views as far as Chamonix, the Cerces range and the Ecrins National Park.

What makes this trip responsible?
Walking with snowshoes from one guesthouse to the next requires no ski lifts, groomed pistes and leaves no impact apart from tracks in the fresh snow. Snowshoers search out the quieter corners of the mountains, where development and facilities are few. As this sport continues to develop, it will offer mountain communities alternative low impact forms of winter tourism. Our groups will visit remote mountain huts for cake and drink stops helping to support the economy of this remote community. Using local leaders who are committed to responsible tourism is helping to preserve the way of life in their area.
