Try your hand at snowshoeing!

No experience required. With your snowshoes on your feet and your face turned to the cool wind, this activity really couldn't be simpler. All you need to do is to walk!
Whether for a short ramble or a full-blown hike, you can wander everywhere, along trails which are off the beaten track while remaining well maintained and marked out.
The most important thing is the high quality of the environment, the sheer variety of settings you will pass through and their unbelievable tranquillity. A rare combination, but one which the Auvergne offers in abundance.


Several resorts offer guided and assisted services. As specialists in the mountain ecosystem and always keen to protect our natural heritage, they will present the local biodiversity and explain the day-to-day lives of the animals living here, pointing out traces of their activity.

The hike, which always provides ample opportunities for snowball fights, is popular with both young and old alike. More demanding hikes are also available, offering all the same benefits, making the area perfect for anyone keen to discover the natural environment at any time of year.
