Let him guide you as you contemplate the sunset under the stars... On snowshoes, you can share a unique moment with your loved ones, family or friends, and enjoy the riches of our mountains.
You'll witness a spectacular sunset over the immaculate white peaks, then let the stars guide you.

All our guides have a high level of training, guaranteeing their ability to supervise, lead, teach and train people or groups safely in the mountains.



We'll start at the Col de la Schlucht and head towards the Roi Dagobert thatch and the place known as "Les Trois Fours", to the Martinswand rocks from where we'll have a magnificent view over the Alsace plain, and, if we're lucky, we'll spot some chamois.
From up there, we'll explain the constellations and the starry sky.
On the way back, we'll cross a magnificent beech-fir forest and pass through some beautiful clearings.
An evening out of the ordinary, which you can extend by enjoying a mountain menu at a typical Vosges farm inn (optional).

You'll discover
    ➤ The Hohneck, with its altitude of over 1,200 meters, is also one of the most famous and most visited of the Vosges crests! It is located in the sub-alpine zone. This stage, which follows the montane stage, is easily remarkable for its steep, rocky slopes, a lack of vegetation due to violent winds and low temperatures, where fir and beech groves no longer thrive and give way to alpine plant species and chaumes, vast grassy expanses, equivalent to alpine pastures in the Alps, although the Vosges subalpine stage is unique in its kind.
    ➤ La Bresse is a town near the German border. In the heart of the Ballons des Vosges regional nature park, the ski resort of La Bresse-Hohneck offers ski runs amid lakes, mountain ridges and forests. The Hautes Chaumes are located between the Trois Fours to the north and the Rainkopf to the south. They are a fine example of the open sub-alpine formations of the Vosges massif.
    ➤ The original Pulsatille blanche and Airelle des marais moorlands, typical of these Vosges altitudes and unique in Europe, have unfortunately been partly transformed either by intensive grazing or by the development of hay meadows in the 1980s. However, there are still some beautiful moorlands, home to remarkable flora and fauna, including several relict glacial species.
This ensemble of "hautes chaumes" is punctuated by sub-alpine beech forests, peat bogs and spring areas.
    ➤ The cirque du Wormspel can be reached via the névés trail, and its alpine appearance stems from the glacial period when a lake was dug out and gradually colonized by vegetation and a peat bog. Today, these natural elements have been destroyed in favor of the creation of the Schiessrothried lake with its dam and numerous hiking trails.
    ➤ The Wormsa Valley is a glacial valley and nature reserve nestled in the sumptuous Grande Vallée de Munster, dotted with forests, rivers and waterfalls that are remnants of the Quaternary Ice Age. It takes its name from the Wormsa, a tributary stream of the Fecht. Its many cirques, rocky ridges and moraines will immediately remind you of an alpine setting!
