It has been quite awhile since I last wrote on here.
Life as a nomad guide has been non stop.
This year started with a great snowshoe season here in the French and Italian Alps.
Followed by two Tour du Mont Blanc, that take in the seven valleys that make up the massif. Each valley very different to each other, this is one of the reasons the TMB is such a famous and classic circular trekking route. Possible from 8 – 11 days, this is a must if you love your trekking.
After this saw BigSmileAdventures head off to Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan to lead a 29 day expedition. This area of Central Asia blew us away and we will be putting an Itinerary together in the near future for next summer.
After this we came home to the Alps, more TMB`S a two-week period down on the Amalfi coast and back for one last TMB to finish the season in the Alps. Now we are back on the beautiful Amalfi coast for the last 3 weeks of guiding to fully finish our summer.
With that our minds turn to the coming winter and out snowshoe season, the winter wonderland of the French and Italian Alps once again. Back country, away from the madness of the ski pistes, wonderment at the solitude and quietness of these majestic places and mountains.
We pride ourselves at BigSmileAdventures to know the region so well that we take you to where the local`s go, the beautiful places that are not in the tourist areas. Come join us to discover what the locals want to keep a secret and enjoy these special places.
We have a great team of International Mountain Leaders working with us this year, check them out on the about us page. Their experience, skill and local knowledge is second to none and at BigSmileAdventures we will only work with the best. This is to insure you get the most out of your experience with us.
All the details, dates and prices are in our snowshoe section of the website. Send us an email, give us a call we love talking all things mountain.
Heres to seeing you this winter.
