This is a short break away in the undiscovered mountains of the Southern French Alps with a trapper style itinerary to reconnect with nature and experience a really wild adventure with your friends or family!

On this trip you will snowshoe, build an igloo, sleep overnight in an igloo, go husky sledding and for a little pamper (this is a holiday after all!) relax in a wood fired hot-tub!

Whilst you won't be hunting and gathering like a true Alpine wilderness trapper, all of the activities represent the types of experiences a real trapper would live on a daily basis. You will snowshoe in remote alpine territory, learn how to build a survival shelter or igloo as a trapper may have done to escape a blizzard or storm. You will experience one overnight in an igloo built by professionals and husky sledding - one of the preferred modes of transport of a trapper. In addition to experiencing your wilderness trapper lifestyle first hand, you will be treated to an hour in a natural wood fired hot tub in a remote valley. A completely natural pamper with no electricity or chemicals in the water required!
