SNOWSHOEING & WALKS
Walking through the silence of the snow
The beauty of nature knows no seasons: extraordinary even in winter when you can enjoy it with animal prints in the snow, an almost unreal silence, and the odd flash of brown or green that stand out against the immaculate white of the horizon.
Nature seems to stand still in winter, but we know it is just resting, ready to explode with new colours, fragrances and vital energy in the springtime.
If you love nature in all its guises, open spaces, snowy scenery and, above all, if you adore peace and quiet, we suggest you try going for a walk with snow shoes.A snow shoe excursion is a unique experience, taking walkers back into the distant past, when snow shoes were the only way for those who lived in the mountains to get about after a heavy showfall. Today, snow shoes are used for different reasons, but the slow pace and silence that characterise this activity have not changed at all.
Why not try it? In Val di Sole you can walk along well-marked, groomed trails or choose an organised excursion.
Walking on the snow must be a pleasure, free from worries and without hurry. So that you can really enjoy the physical and mental benefits of a walk on the snow, without it being too tiring or worrying, we have selected some twenty routes that we undertake to keep groomed and well-signposted throughout the winter. All the trails are marked by a sign like this one and all you need to do is choose the one best suited to your abilities and level of fitness. You can walk them on foot or, even better, with snow shoes.
Let us give you some useful tips, before we leave you to have fun organising your excursion:
