WINTER ESCAPES

Snowshoe and Wine

Escape into the white silence of the magic winter forest and observe the animals...

Reach the summits with panoramic views of the glaciers by traversing galleys and ridges...

Taste the tranquility and the magic of winter...

Sportive or relaxed, hiking with snowshoes offers a different way to discover winter nature. The international mountain leaders will select the ideal itinerary with and for you. They also make sure that after a great day of being outdoors, you will savour some delicious food and some nice wines at the hotel. 

Day 1: The morning is a warm-up hike, to get accustomed to the terrain and the snowshoes. We hike in the forest near the village of Villar d’Arène and try to spot some chamois. After lunch with a view, we will climb up a bit. After reaching the summit of l’Aiguillon, we descent back to La Grave, passing typical mountain villages and its inhabitants.  

Day 2: We hike up on the south face above La Grave, facing the massif de La Meije and after a long but rewarding trip with stunning views of the peaks of La Meije, we reach the summit of “La Signale”. After a glass of hot wine and a savoury snack we redescent to La Grave.

Day 3: Today we visit the village of Chazelet and its typical architecture. On the way up, local farmers will show us around and explain their tradition of farming and local produce. We hike up to the Plateau d’Emparis and reach the summit La Gross Tête. The views are just stunning. The descent will take us back to La Grave, just in time for a small wine tasting in the bar, accompanied with some tapas.


Practical “D” information

Difficulty: The hikes are for hikers of all levels, we adapt the hight and the pace, but you should be able to walk 4 to 6 hours per day with altitude difference between 400 to 950 meters. You will carry your own backpack with your personal items for the day.

Dates: Every thursday (arrival day at the hotel) till sunday from december till end of april. Other departure dates and shorter breaks are possible on request.

Dosh: Tarifs depend on number of people, number of days and time of year. Please contact us for more information at info@hotel-edelweiss.com

Day 2: Today is mainly focused on relaxation. We hike in the beautiful valley of Serre Chevalier. Flora, Fauna and beautiful views are all on the program. After a glass of hot wine and a savoury snack at a local restaurant we go to the hot springs of Monetier les Bains and relax our muscles while indulging the winter scenary. Thank goodness a taxi will bring us back home to La Grave...
