Winter time provides us with a unique opportunity for hiking in the snow. With the aid of special snow shoes and a mountain guide we will venture through snowy forests, frozen lakes and some of the most amazing scenery the Pyrenees mountains have to offer!
Walking through snow with the aid of snowshoes is an excellent way to travel through the winter landscape without needing the technical skills of a skier. Snowshoes work by distributing your weight over a larger area so that your feet don’t sink completely into the snow. Most modern snowshoes are made of light metal or plastic, the heel is left ‘free’ as on cross-country skis, as this makes walking easier.
If you can walk, then you can snowshoe – it really is as simple as that!
Spice up your visit to Barcelona in the winter months with this fun activity!
