A snowshoe traverse of the Chablais Alps in France, from Megevette to Lake Geneva
Snowshoeing is growing in popularity as more and more people catch on to this easy to learn, low-impact way to access the beautiful pristine landscapes of a winter-transformed alpine forest or high pasture and even to climb easy peaks. The Traverse of the Chablais is a special journey through the mountains of the Haute Savoie between the French village of Megevette in the valley of the Arve in the west, to the shores of Lake Geneva in the east. The Chablais area is renowned for its marvellous snowshoeing country and many of the high points we cross on this route offer impressive views of the Mont Blanc range.
At the end of each day's snowshoeing, we arrive at our hotel in one of the pretty little alpine villages of the Chablais, where our luggage will be waiting. After a hot shower and change we will be ready to enjoy the evening and taste some superb regional cuisine. Requiring no previous experience of snowshoeing and with snow shoes, ski poles and other items of specialist equipment provided, this is the perfect winter wonderland holiday.
