Explore deep into the wintry forest and experience the silence of our winter wonderland away from the ski tracks. On snowshoes you can go almost anywhere, no skiing required.
A snowshoe tour with one of our guides offers a very different experience and a complete change from skiing. We wind through the trees, taking the time to appreciate the beautiful, sculptured shapes created by the snow-laden branches. You will gain insights into the lives of the animals and birds that stay active through the winter: ptarmigan, hares, foxes, pine martin, voles and even the wolverine.
Most people take to snowshoeing very easily. It is simply winter walking though how easy it feels depends on how deep the snow is. Your guide will break trail for the group or you can make your own tracks. take this opportunity to see the winter landscape from a whole new perspective!
The snowshoes (no tennis rackets!) attach securely to your boots and their large surface area helps you to walk in the snow. Complete with a pair of poles you are ready to go.
We offer a guided snowshoe tour mid week when we may visit the spectacular ice fall of Myfallet. There are also other options local to Venabu.
Private snowshoe guiding- take a snowshoe tour with one of our guides and enjoy an excursion that is perfectly suited to you, whether you would like to enjoy a tranquil tour through the forest or visit a snowshoe summit. The choice is yours, subject to the conditions and availability at the time.

We also hire snowshoes in the skistall which is open every morning, please visit our ski and equipment hire page for more information.
