Snowshoe Hiking

Snowshoeing is discovering nature in its purest form. It is the solitude of a freshly snow-covered winter forest. It is the way you draw the first tracks through the virgin snow ...

Hiking with snowshoes is to see and feel nature at its purest. The tranquility of fresh snow on mountains and trees and the unique feeling of being the first to mark your way through the fresh powder…

Scandinavian nomads and inuits from Greenland and North America used snowshoes for easier commute. By now, snowshoe hiking has evolved into a popular winter sport for everybody. Walk at a leisurely pace enjoying the outdoors and the fresh air, or take it up a notch by using your snowshoes for an active and adventurous workout session.

Snowshoe Hiking: the technique

Snowshoes are simply strapped under your feet. They prevent you from sinking into the fresh powder and make for easier hiking in the snow.
