Snowshoe Hiking

A nature experience in its purest form.

It is the solitary silence of the snowy winter forest. It is you who draws the first track through the untouched snow….
Originally, the snowshoes facilitated the motion of the Scandinavian nomads and the Inuits in Greenland and North America.
Today, snowshoe hiking has become a winter sport of its own. Depending on your personal preferences and aims, snowshoe hiking can either be a relaxing activity during which you enjoy the landscape or an adventurous and exhausting sport.

Snowshoe hiking technique

You fix the “snowshoes” under your feet. This prevents your feet from sinking into the deep powder snow and facilitates your motion.
