Snowshoeing in complete safety

Find yourself in the middle of nature during a snowshoe hike. On a marked and secure trail, you follow the indications to progress, snowshoes on your feet, in the heart of nature. Whatever the height of the fresh snow, your snowshoes give you the lightness you need to move easily in the snow on the best hiking trails in the Alpes vaudoises.

Be on the lookout… It is not uncommon to surprise chamois or foxes in these landscapes whose purity makes you forget time. Several itineraries are offered to allow you to take full advantage of the white gold and its landscapes.

Accessible to as many people as possible, snowshoeing takes you to places that are less frequented in winter, leaving nature to invade us with its beauty. Go around a snow-covered lake, take a little height to admire the panoramic view and end your hike with a comforting drink in a mountain restaurant or a tea room in the village.
