Deep powder snow hiking

Snowshoes allow you to experience ultimate freedom during your holiday: you can walk wherever you want to go and discover the most beautiful spots of land away from the signposted hiking paths.

Put on your snowshoes and go for a walk through the deep powder snow, the bigger surface makes it possible to walk without sinking into the snow.

Tip: Don't forget to put on the so called gaiters in order to prevent snow getting into your shoes. There is hardly anything worse than hiking with wet feet.
