Join us this winter for a week of snowshoeing adventure in the heart of the Swiss Alps surrounded by dozens of the highest peaks in the Alps. Based from a luxury chalet in the Valais region, our private minibus will take us to a stunning new location each day for us to enjoy the peace and serenity of the winter landscape. Our hikes will take us through forest tracks, charming hamlets and idyllic snow-covered pastures. We will reach breath-taking panoramas of the Pennine Alps and the Mont Blanc Range along with their immense glaciers.
Each day we will have an opportunity to pick off our favorite winter hiking and snowshoeing outings. We'll take trams and funiculars to speed our ascent to the areas that offer the best conditions and the most spectacular vistas.
Each night there is time for us to relax in front of the fire and enjoy a well-deserved three course meal served by our wonderful chalet host.
Weather conditions allowing, we will head to the world famous Grand St Bernard Monastery for an overnight adventure. At 8100ft, the Monastery sits on a historic mountain pass and is completely snowed in for most of the year, meaning it can only be reached by snowshoes or skis. If the snow or weather conditions are not safe for the overnight trip, then we have plenty more winter hiking adventures up our sleeve.
