Snowshoeing holidays

Snowshoeing is winter walking. Forget all notions of whizz kid skiing. This is for people who love to hike, but enables them to do it when their favourite landscapes or wanderlust wishlists have become blanketed with snow. Snowshoeing holidays take you to remote villages, mountain cabins and wilderness retreats. It’s slow and serene. Because there is snow business like slow business.

Snowshoeing in the French Alps
The husky dog sledding, the ice climb, the snowshoeing itself, being out in such a beautiful environment! And our companions too - the other four people in the party were lovely, and we all got on very well together - enough in common to bond yet different enough for good conversation! (more)Angela Dennison
In terms of the most exciting part, it has to be the ice climbing...not part of our original plans but I'm so glad it was suggested. Slow down and enjoy your stay in what really is an undiscovered part of the Alps. (more)Norma Sherratt
Well organized, interesting, hassle free and great fun- the ideal introduction to the activities. (more)Matt Hannah
From €985 excluding flights
Winter walking & snowshoeing, France
Having a great variety of walking experiences was wonderful - from full-on snowshoeing to walking over ice and snow with cleats/microspikes on our boots to gazing across from the mountain tops at the Med (more)Angie Polkey
Excellent!!!!! This holiday had so many wonderful moments...each and every moment spent there was memorable (more)Bernadette Russo
Walking in the beautiful natural habitat with the chamois and finding out about the fauna and flora of the mountains was excellent. The company was great, the days well structured and organised and Liz and Mel great hosts so that made the holiday one to remember. (more)Anne White

Snowshoeing holiday in Chamonix
This was our first experience of a winter holiday and snow shoeing, although a challenge to experience the solitude of the high peaks and silent snow fields was amazing. (more)David Knapper
The snowshoe walks on the Alps and the stay at Chalet Savoy were the highlights of this holiday. The walks took us to the top of the world, literally. They were envigorating and the scenery was stunning. (more)Gabriel Decio
From £1099 - £1249 including UK flights
Snowhole expedition, Scotland
Memorable parts? Learning to self-arrest with an ice-axe - sliding head first and face down on an icy slope! Tips? Bring lots of spare gloves. Local benefits? Yes, it provides local employment and the accommodation was as sustainable as possible and the activities cause no lasting impact. Overall rating? Very good, maybe not an experience I want to repeat but fulfilling to do once. (more)Dan Smith
From £480 excluding flights
Finland snowshoeing holiday
Memorable parts? The whole holiday was amazing, the location, the walks, skiing & husky sledding, the accommodation, the food & the wonderful staff who did their utmost to ensure that it was an unforgettable experience for us Tips? I thought that "winter equipment provided" meant snowshoes, skis & boots etc but all clothing (plus thermos, head torch, rucksack) was also available to borrow, no need to pack anything other than a few baselayers & something comfortable for the evening.... (more)Pauline Hawes
From £1099 - £1229 including UK flights
Pyrenees winter walk, France
Memorable parts? The fantastic group of people that I shared my holiday with... like minded, laugh a minute, make your own fun people! Our free time was even spent as a group, in search of Lucheon's best sledging spots, we were not disappointed! Tips? Don't skimp on your outdoor gear... good gaiters are a 'must have' item and if you're lucky suncream and sunglasses! Local benefits? Our last group activity, on the way to the airport, was a stop off at the local recycling point,... (more)Pippa Purser
