WHAT IS SNOWSHOEING
Snowshoeing is a walk in the snow characterised by the use of snowshoes. These are special snowshoes attached to the foot only at the front of the boot, leaving the heels free. One also walks with the aid of snow poles to alternate with walking. Snowshoeing, in fact, is characterised by a movement very similar to cross-country skiing and is easy to practise as it does not require any particular physical preparation.
HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE
The evening snowshoeing in Aosta Valley take place in the Gran Paradiso Park, Cervino Valley or Mont Blanc area.
The experience begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m. with dinner in a typical local restaurant (€20-25 to be paid locally). The guided evening snowshoe hike is a special experience, especially on full moon nights. In fact, the reflected moon creates an evocative atmosphere with the stars appearing sharply due to the complete immersion in nature, far from the city lights.
The nature guide who will accompany you along the route will ensure your safety and also explain the visible constellations.
