Cross-country hiking in snow shoes

Snowshoes are the ideal piece of sports equipment for going cross-country hiking in winter. Obstacles such as steep slopes and deep snow are a welcome challenge. The area’s previously inaccessible terrain suddenly becomes within reaching distance again. By following in the footsteps of the forest inhabitants, you can experience the quiet side of nature. Small tip: pay close attention to the weather forecasts and plan your route carefully. Snowshoes and tour tips are available for free in the hotel!
