'The highland walking society' provide snowshoeing trips in France and Germany during January and February.

Snowshoeing offers the perfect alternative to the crowds and mechanical paraphernalia of ski resorts and takes you to the heart of idyllic winter landscapes where you can enjoy the beauty of winter in peace and quiet. It's a fast growing activity partly because in deep snow conditions, a snowshoeing group can go where walkers simply can't. Unlike skiing, no heavy equipment or special skills are required; generally, if you can walk you can snowshoe. And the best kept secret about snowshoeing? It's really good fun. Contact Bruce:
