A paradise for snowshoeing: Val Pusteria, South Tyrol

Three days a week, your host Josef will be taking you to a snowshoe tour of the most beautiful corners of our land. Together you will be negotiating through wide expanses covered in deep, shimmering snow. Breathe in the pure mountain air and relish the surreal quiet of Valle di Casies/Gsiesertal! In this pristine landscape, snowshoeing is an authentic full immersion into nature, and an unparalleled way to experience the magical side of the South Tyrolean winter. Do not miss the chance!

 

Our tours come in different levels of difficulty and of course we provide you with personalised advice in case you wish to take your own tours. In any case, the necessary equipment is at your disposal for hire at no charge.
