1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

This was our first experience of a winter vacation and snow shoeing, although a challenge to experience the solitude of the high peaks and silent snow fields was amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make sure you are fit and take a t shirt just in case there are some hot days. Can recommend the natural spa in Toulouse to revive the muscles.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


review 7 Jan 2008

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The snowshoe walks on the Alps and the stay at Chalet Savoy were the highlights of this vacation. The walks took us to the top of the world, literally. They were invigorating and the scenery was stunning. Chalet Savoy felt like home for a week. The hosts, Oliver and Elaine, made it possible for the group to have the best time we could have while we stayed there.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be fit and have the right equipment for 7-hour walks in the snow. Leave your angst behind and be ready to conquer peak after peak in each of the five walks.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, absolutely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent.
