Hiking and trekking in winter
Hiking and trekking activities in Savoy can be practised the year round. In winter, insulated and waterproof snow boots are suitable for snowshoeing.
The apartment in the residence “Auberge du Val Joli” is the perfect place for both activities : in winter, 4 hiking trails start in Séez ; in summer, many trails start from the Auberge du Val Joli.
Here are some hiking trails you can practise in winter time :
– Starting from the residence: Sentier des Hameaux
– Starting in Séez: Cascade de Saint Germain (between the small villages of Villard Dessus and St Germain): Sentier des écureuils
If you prefer ski touring, try the trail « l’Hermine ». Starting from the ski lift Les Ecudets (0,8 miles away from the apartment), it ends in La Rosière ski resort : 740 meters of elevation gain. Use the alpine trail for the downhill.
Using a mountain guide can also be a good option as you will discover unknown places around in a safety way.
– Other hiking trail: Le Monal
