Snowshoeing Tours – Snow Fun!
Have you ever tried to walk over a big layer of snow? It is pretty difficult especially if you have to climb up… Even though it may be fun but it can be extremely tiring and exhausting… So, we suggest you an alternative – walking on snow with snowshoes:). Actually, we suggest you a great trekking tour in the mountains, on snow. Now, imagine the immensity of the snowy mountains and forests and the infinite blue sky, imagine conquering the snowy trails!
A snowshoe is a footwear for walking over snow. Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the person over a larger area so that the person’s foot does not sink completely into the snow. Snowshoeing is a form of hiking.
In the past, snowshoes were essential tools for fur traders and people whose life depended on the ability to get around in areas of deep and frequent snowfall. Today, snowshoes are used for recreation by hikers in wintertime. Snowshoeing is easy to learn and in appropriate conditions is a safe recreational activity.
We’ll have a winter trekking tour in the mountains around Sibiu – we’ll set together the area according to the weather conditions and snow layer and, in case there isn’t enough snow, we can have a hiking tour, of course with trekking shoes and poles.
The tour includes:
- Hiking on showshoes/ winter trekking shoes and trekking poles;
- We’ll provide the snowshoes and trekking poles;
- We could stop on our way for a hot tea and a little improvised barbecue. The wilder, the better. It will be great to charge our batteries for the rest of the tour
Somewhere in the Carpathians
Sibiu is located right at the bottom of the Carpathians (Cindrel, Lotru and Fagaras mountains). There are endless trekking trails in our area and they have different levels of difficulty.
For our snowshoe tour it is essential to have good snow… We’ll choose together the trails according to the weather conditions, your difficulty level and accessibility.
If you have never walked on snowshoes there is no problem as it is very easy to learn. You just need a few minutes to accommodate with the them adapted to your shoes and that’s all, the adventure can start!
If you’re interested, we’ll set together the tour details, length and accessibility. It can be a private tour (with a minimum of two persons) but also a group tour – the more, the merrier 🙂
The tour includes hiking for a few hours, local visit and, optional, local snack.
No problem, it’s time to learn! It is very easy, we’ll make sure it will also be safe!
Yes, of course. It can be really fun for children.
