Price : 25 Euros per person or 125 Euros for a private booking. Children 20 Euros. Times: We usually start half an hour before sunset. Snowshoes and poles can be provided. Please send me an email or call me to confirm - dates can change fast and adjustements are often made due to the weather, snow conditions and group numbers Replace your evening at home in front of the TV with a snowshoe hike beneath the stars up on the ridges of Hautacam, in the International Dark Sky Reserve. Let yourself be surprised by the immensity of the universe, comptemplate the lights in the villages down in the valley below... Find out about the main constellations, or allow the full moon to light your way beneath the Milky Way. Remember that two thirds of animals are nocturnal, so there is a good chance that we might see something out there! We will begin with the spectacular sunset before using our snowshoes to hike up onto the ridgeline. The start time depends on the exact time of year (because the sunset changes throughout the year!). Please send me an email for the exact details. Enquiries: 0033 (0)781510460 and garethdegazost@gmail.com For groups (minimum of 15 people), it is also possible to include a high altitude three-course pyrenean gastronomic experience (email me for details)! Please bring a rucksack with water, snack, sunglasses for the beginning of the walk. Dress according to the weather forecast (use an "onion" system of multiple thin layers allowing you to adapt your body's temperature to the changing environment). At night, it is generally cold in winter! You must have boots with ankle support and a head torch. Transport will be by car-sharing (I will call you the previous evening to organise this and confirm meeting place and times).
