excluding flights
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

French Alps self guided walking holiday
From
£515

We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day. We went rafting on the Giffre on our day off, which was also great. (more)Ross Carne
Superb walking country (more)Christine Ansons
Varied expertly guided walks through magnificent scenery (more)Jon Hargreaves

Memorable parts? The Verdon gorges. Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Tips? You have to be able to walk around 15 km a day, and climb up to 500 m a day.

You need to be able to carry around 2 litres of water (it gets hot), and you have to buy your own food in the mornings, for picnic lunches. Local benefits? Yes, the guide is local, as are...
