On snowshoes, you can share a unique moment with your loved ones, family or friends and appreciate the riches of our mountains during this night-time walk.
Let him guide you, as you contemplate a starry sky as mysterious as it is fabulous... 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 starry sky over the immaculate white ridges, then let the stars guide you.
All our guides have a high level of training, guaranteeing their competence 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.

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 level, which follows the montane level, is easily remarkable for its steep, rocky slopes and absence of vegetation due to high winds and low temperatures, where fir and beech forests no longer thrive, giving way to alpine plant species and chaumes, vast expanses of grass, equivalent to alpine pastures in the Alps, although the Vosges subalpine level is unique in its kind.
    La Bresse is located 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 open sub-alpine formations in the Vosges mountains.

The original heaths of Pulsatilla blanche and Airelle des marais, 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 "high stubble" landscape is punctuated by sub-alpine beech forests, peat bogs and spring areas.
    The cirque du Wormspel is accessible 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 to create 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!
