Construction of igloos on the watershed in the Monts d'Ardèche. The eastern edge of the central massif, including the Monts d'Ardèche, has good snow to make the most beautiful igloos with the family.

Spend the day in the Ardèche mountains by participating in the morning activity 'Traces of animals and signs of life in winter'. You can take your picnic in the shelter in the farm of Pré Lafont.

Next departure at your convenience (according to calendar availability on our website for booking)

Program: Departure in snowshoes from 2pm from the farm to reach the most suitable and snowy place for the construction of igloos. We reach the ridge line and the water sharing at 1200 meters altitude and located about 1 km (15 minutes walk).
