ITINERARY

With our Chamonix snowshoeing programmes we prefer not to set out a rigid fixed itinerary but rather to adjust the daily outings around the weather conditions and needs of the individual groups. But rest assured, we will show you some amazing scenery. The Chamonix Snowshoe - Moderate programme will be at a more relaxed pace than the harder version with lots of photo stops Here is a sample one week programme.
