No route is too far on snowshoes. They gently carry hikers over a deep blanket of snow. Snowshoeing requires virtually no experience. Anyone who can walk can also snowshoe, thus experiencing the delightful world of pristine winterscapes. Beautiful trails lead through forests, over wide snowfields and along impressive 4000-metre peaks. Once you’ve tried snowshoeing, you’ll always want to come back and leave your tracks in the snow.
