- Snowshoeing through spectacular French and Spanish Pyrenees
- Small group adventure from our comfortable mountain lodge
This is where our snowshoeing programme was born. Over seventeen years ago we started to entice our summer walkers back to enjoy this area's stunning winter scenery on snowshoes.
The valleys and ridges around the French spa town of Luchon are perfect for winter exploration, and our series of tried and tested daywalks take in the best views of the area as we climb to a ridge or small peak each day. Whether it is through deep snow in the highs of the season or at the end of the winter when snow may only coat the higher stretches, each day takes us on exciting walks through unique Pyrenean mountain scenery.
Our base is La Fenière, a cosy mountain lodge nestling in the Vallée du Lys, ten minutes drive from the spa town of Luchon, with superb views of the highest peaks in the area.
What makes this trip responsible?
Snowshoes are the perfect way to explore and enjoy the winter landscape while minimizing your impact. Snowshoers require no ski lifts and no groomed or maintained pistes, and their visit leaves no impact apart from tracks in the fresh snow. Snowshoers search out the quieter corners of the mountains, where development and facilities are few. As this sport continues to develop, it will offer mountain communities alternative low impact forms of winter tourism.
Rail Travel throughout Europe has never been easier and with the added benefit of reducing your carbon footprint it is a great way to reach the start point of your Exodus holiday. Daily trains take you from Paris to Luchon in comfort and with ease, avoiding the need to travel to an airport and wait for checked-in luggage.
