France, Snowshoeing, 8 days - from £795 (land only) - from €1,115 (land only) - from $1,300 (land only)
Day 1: Arrive Toulouse. KE group package services begin with a single timed transfer to the accommodation near Louchon. The guide will give a briefing on the days ahead and answer any questions.
Day 2: After we have been issued with our snowshoes and equipment we have an introduction to the snowshoe techniques and familiarise ourselves with safety procedures. Our walk today takes us on a circuit by Bourg d'Oueill and onto Antenac ridge, before returning to the chalet.
Day 3: Today is a wonderfully scenic route around the Pic d'Aubas and Pic d'Arres horseshoe. Return to chalet.
Day 4: We have a circular snowshoe walk today around the Benque circuit. Return to chalet for tea and biscuits and dinner.
Day 5: A rest day at the beautiful chalet. You could go cross-country or downhill skiing, or visit the small town of Luchon with its cafes and restaurants, or just stay at the chalet and relax by the open fire.
Day 6: The snowshoeing walk today takes us to the Col de Peyrasourde ridge and Pic du Lion for more spectacular scenery and views of the Pyrenees.
Day 7: A short transfer takes us to Aritgue from where we walk to Montmajou before return to the chalet for the last night. A fitting end to a wonderful winter wonderland week.
Day 8: KE group package services end after breakfast and a single timed transfer to Toulouse Airport.
