If you want to get away from the city and spend a full day in nearly untouched natural areas, this guided snowshoe hike is for you! Explore dense forests and snowy pastures in this tranquil environment, and hear the sound of your snowshoes crunching softly in the snow. Your guide will tell you about the culture and lifestyle of local people, geology and wildlife of the mountains, you can even notice tracks of animals looking for food in the pristine snow. Enjoy the stunning scenery of winter wonderland from the rooftops you have conquered.

Snowshoes help you to walk in deep snow as your feet do not sink completely in, but if there is not enough snow, the tours can take place without them. You don’t need any experience or training, this hike is available for all levels.
