My partner and I had a wonderful snowshoeing experience on Le Semnoz with our guide Lauris. We met him in a parking lot in Annecy, and he drove us up to the mountain, fitted us with snowshoes and poles, and took us on a guided walk both on marked trails and off-piste into the forest. He pointed out some evergreens and animal tracks, as well as the names of notable mountains. The lookout point was stunning, and Lauris surprised us with cups of hot tea before we headed back. A wonderful afternoon with a warm and knowledgeable guide. Even if you have snowshoed before, it's worth it to go with someone who can take you off-piste. It was my first time, so I signed up for a half-day, but you could do a whole day, too. Highly recommended!

My friends and I had the time of our lives snowshoeing with Lauris as our guide! The views were magnificent and walking through fresh white snow was a winter’s dream. I was surprised how well Lauris was able to keep up with the crazy humor of my friend. :D Best experience of our trip, highly recommend!

We really enyoyed our canyoning trip. We went together with our daughter of 8 years old who was guided perfectly by Jeremy through some challenging spots. We recommend both the trip as well as Jeremy.
