SOUTHERN ALPS SNOWSHOE TREK

This was my 10th exodus trip - my first was in 1996!! About time I did a review! The fact that I have come back time and again is testament to the enduring appeal of Exodus. Some trips have been better than others - but every single one has been memorable. Ok, so this trip did not encompass the sheer drama of Russia just after the fall of the Soviet Union (wow! what memories ...). But for one week you are in a beautiful part of France. There was excellent company, excellent scenery and excellent weather. Thoroughly recommended.

Very good trip with nice people. Weather smiled on us apart unfortunately on the day we went up the Gardiole de l'Alp but you get a second chance to get up really high if you do the downhill skiing option on the "rest day"

Amazing views and an overall great experience.  Very lucky to have had a full group (12 trekkers) so good conversation and varied company.

The Queyras is a stunning area and the snowshoeing top notch. Combined with comfortable gites and plentiful food it all made for a very enjoyable trip.

Another excellent Exodus trip.  Superb winter walking with very well planned routes, an excellent free day skiing in the middle, basic but clean accommodation full of character, and (rather a lot of) the fantastic local food and wine.

SOUTHERN ALPS SNOWSHOE TREK

Excellent programme of snowshoeing in very quiet, unspolit valleys and mountains with spectacular scenery. Typical French alpine village scenes and natural surroundings were complimented by staying in traditional gites, each with their own various charms eg wood-fired sauna, excellent food, quiet lounges, complimentary larch-flower liquer etc!The treks were exceptionally well planned by Vincent for variety - terrain, scenery, distance etc and the day off was welcomed to rest some muscles and use others in Saint Veran - eg skiing, dog-sledding, reading a book in the sunshine etc. Good transport to and from the trek to Turin airport made life easy and not having to worry about luggage transfers between gites was a God-send - just take your daypack and packed lunch and "snowshoe - Allez!"

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday aided by wall to wall sunshine and good snow conditions. We liked reaching our destinations by foot and spending long days out in the fresh air.

Once again an excellent holiday, well led with a good and varied itinerary and wall-to-wall sunshine. Even the downhill skiing on the rest-day was good and at a reasonable price.

SOUTHERN ALPS SNOWSHOE TREK

This was the best snowshoeing trip I have ever been on and it absolutely lived up to, and exceeded, the brochure and trip notes write-up.  Stunning scenery, challenging but safe routes, magnificent views, wonderful food, a great leader and a group who could keep together both up and down the mountains as well as gelling socially.
