Jean Rémy takes us on snowshoes to the heights of Grimentz in the direction of La Brinta. At the edge of the forest, we were shuffling through deep snow and admiring the nearby peaks. It was a wonderful discovery, away from the ski slopes.


Thanks to his meticulous preparation, Jean Rémy led us with ease on snowshoes through the Risoud forest above Le Brassus for over 6 hours. The atmosphere was magical. A memorable day that we wouldn’t have experienced on our own.


Jean Rémy organized a wonderful snowshoe walk in the Risoud forest. We really enjoyed the fondue stop in a woodcutter’s hut, followed by a visit to the Astroval astronomical observatory. Very original and much appreciated.
Thank you so much!

Laurence and Henry

Introduction to snowshoeing between Tignousa and the Hotel Weisshorn in a grandiose setting. We discovered the flora and some of the birds of the Swiss Alps. My warmest thanks to Jean Rémy for his guidance, kindness and professional advice.


Jean Rémy took us on a week-long dream trek in the Grisons. He organized a route of varying difficulty, adapted to our level. The images and thrills of the magnificent landscapes are still fresh in our minds.

Axelle and Christian

Jean Rémy led us on a wonderful hike into the heart of the Entlebuch Biosphere : from Restaurant Stäldeli high above beautiful alpine meadows, through high moors and sparse forests to the almost alpine looking summit of Schafmatt. Jean Rémy knows trees, flowers and birds as well as geology and geography. A true and interesting hike. Merci !

Ariane and Markus

I’ve hiked the Salève countless times. But I rediscovered this mountain thanks to Jean Rémy’s skilful narration, mixing rock history, ammonite fossils and anecdotes about 19th-century Geneva geologists. Thank you JR for a thrilling hike!


Eating a fondue in front of a breathtaking panorama, then spending the night in a tent at 2000 meters, is a pure dream. Thanks again to Jean Rémy for organizing this event and sharing his knowledge of mountains, flowers and geology in a timeless setting.

Answers to your frequently asked questions

A 5-day trek requires good physical fitness, optimal weather conditions and simple but effective logistics.

If weather conditions persistently deteriorate 24 hours before departure, the trek will be canceled and reimbursed. If the weather deteriorates during the trek, alternatives are put in place to ensure comfort and safety. Every morning, a weather check is carried out to confirm the start of the stage.

Each stage is planned with an exit point in case of emergency: shortened itinerary, roads accessible at a convenient distance, contact by telephone or radio always possible, 1st aid equipment on hand.

It’s better, but not compulsory. What’s important is that you’re in good basic physical condition, and that you’re able to climb an average of 750 meters per day, with pleasure! Then, as the days go by, you’ll settle into a rhythm of walking that’s perfect for regenerative contemplation!
