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
Snowshoeing in the Aosta Valley can take place in the Gran Paradiso Park area, the Matterhorn Valley or the Mont Blanc area.
The experience starts at 9.30 a.m. and ends at 3.30 p.m. The guided snowshoe hike is ideal for enjoying extraordinary panoramas and following in the footsteps of chamois, hares, squirrels and foxes.
You will be able to immerse yourself in the stillness of unspoilt and seemingly sleepy nature, which will give you a profound sense of calm and tranquillity.
The nature guide who will accompany you along the route will guarantee your safety and provide explanations and curiosities about the animals that inhabit the area.
The choice of area and itinerary varies depending on snow conditions and the route chosen.
