Activity description

Serge Cinquin can take you on an unforgettable snowshoeing excursion in Puy Saint Vincent in the French Alps!

Once you've put on your snowshoes, you're off to climb the summits! The hike lasts almost 6 hours so you'll have more than enough time to enjoy your surroundings and make your legs work for it!
Your expert guide will take you to the most beautiful corners of the national park, in the incredible landscapes of prestigious summits and animal tracks. If the opportunity shows up, you might have a chance to observe them!

The start of the hike is in Prey d'Amont, in Puy St Vincent. You will go in the direction of the Col de la Pousterle. At first, you will reach the Oréac plateau. During this crossing, you will meet sedentary birds of the European Alps. After several hours of snwoshoeing and a last 25° slope, you will finally reach the Tete d'Oreac!

If conditions allow it, you will be able to climb in the fresh snow of the Ubac, cross a forest dominated by larches, and finally reach a summit of 2000 metres altitude.

This activity is open to all, as long as your legs are solid enough to take several hours of walking!
