Snowshoeing Tours


Snowshoeing is an extension to hiking, it involves walking over the snow.  The snowshoes are specially designed that feature a wide frame to distribute the weight of the person which allows them to travel mainly on top of the snow rather than through it. These are simply attached to your normal winter footwear using adjustable straps.

Snowshoeing is easy to learn and is a relatively safe activity so long as the conditions are suitable. This is a great way to enjoy walking in the mountains during the snow season.

Snowshoeing tours are available from December to April each year.
