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 a rustic mountain shelter, go husky sledding and then to finish your adventure in style, 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 a real mountain shelter used by local shepherds with no electricity or running water, just a wood burner and basic furniture and you will experience husky sledding - one of the preferred modes of transport of a trapper. After experiencing your wilderness trapper lifestyle first hand, you will be treated to 3 hours in a natural wood fired hot tub in the middle of an Alpine forest. A completely natural pamper with no electricity or chemicals in the water required! Please note the wood fired hot tubs activity is not available for 2020 due to technical reasons so will be replaced with a session at the spa (not so natural but a lovely pamper never-the-less!
