Program

This retreat is a combination of yoga with snowshoeing in the majestic Alpine mountain location. You will enjoy wonderful French food for the weekend. You will experience the beauty of the Vallee Brevon, a unique and wonderful location in the French Alps.

Enjoy your days dedicated to daily yoga classes, meditation, and mindfulness sessions, all held in beautiful surroundings. Finish off the trip feeling better, healthier, leaner, and stronger in your body and mind.

This trip is graded as moderate with all the hikes taking between three to five hours plus allowing time for the meditation practice. Your mountain leader is innately experienced and will ensure hikes are pitched and at an enjoyable level for all individuals.

Some hiking experience is moderate preferable although not essential. It will require average to good levels of fitness. Moderate ascents and descents undertake.

All the trips are lead by experienced mountain leaders who use their breadth of experience to ensure the hikes are enjoyable, with plenty of time for rest breaks, snacks, time for photos and enjoying the mountain experience.

What is snowshoeing?

Snowshoes (raquettes) allow your body weight to be spread out across the surface of the snow preventing you from sinking. This along with poles (batons) means you are balanced and can easily hike in the snowy wilderness.

Level: easy to moderate

  • 3.5 hours of snowshoeing
  • Easy to moderate trails

Daily schedule

Day 1

The weekend begins with a short transfer from Geneva to the Hotel Moineaux in the village of Bellevaux. You will have time to relax with a Restorative yoga session, settle into your room and enjoy fantastic local cuisine in the hotel’s restaurant.

Day 2

The day begins with an energising breakfast before heading out on your first snowshoe adventure.

Taking you off piste and away from the busy ski slopes, your qualified guide leads you on a magical hike from Lac Vallon. An utterly unique experience, snowshoeing is perfect for everyone, whatever your skill level or snow sports experience. Returning to the hotel, you can enjoy the facilities including mini gym, sauna, or an optional massage. There will be a relaxing yoga class before enjoying a traditional dinner.

Day 3

Sunday begins with an invigorating early morning yoga class before enjoying a leisurely brunch with the group. You then depart on the second of your snowshoe treks, discovering snowcapped grottos and hidden glades amid the tall spruce of the forest to explore the head of Vallee Brevon. You enjoy a slightly later lunch in a mountain restaurant before departing for Geneva or your onward destination.
