A snowshoe outing with colleagues or friends to recharge your batteries, following the tracks of wolves, lynx, stoat, deer, wild boar or grouse, and many others. We will interpret their tracks and unravel the mysteries left by the fauna before our passage, and observe nature in the middle of winter

During a guided snowshoeing tour in the snow and in complete safety, a new world will be revealed to you.  Signs of presence, tracks, sounds, wolf or fox tracks, deer, grouse or even capercaillie droppings: the seemingly quiet forest and snowy meadows will come to life as we go deeper into the wild. The stoat will signal itself by its frantic leaps, the fox's tracks will cross those of the hare, the wild boar will distinguish itself by its typical way of digging in the snow and the earth.
