This new holiday offers a week of winter adventure in the French Haute-Alpes with an opportunity to try various winter activities in a stunning location. The week comprises: 1 day of Nordic ski touring taking us off piste into the glorious mountains: a day of cross-country skiing on well groomed tracks, a day of exhilarating dog-sledging and a splendid 2 day snowshoeing trek staying overnight in an isolated mountain gite high in the heart of the Ecrins National Park. There will also be a free day where you can relax or perhaps try your hand at France’s only via ferrata (not included) – an adrenaline filled excursion. All equipment is provided along with a local mountain leader with expert knowledge. If you fancy trying some new winter activities then this is the holiday for you. Join us for a truly memorable week in a spectacular location.
For our holiday we stay at the wonderful Les 5 Saisons perched high in the Freissinieres Valley, known for its hospitality and delicious home cooking. Our stay includes all meals with tea and cakes after our day out and wine with the evening meal. The rustic feel is enhanced by the open fire in the dining room. A sauna is available to help relax those tired muscles after a day in the mountains. It’s the perfect place to return to after a day of activities!
