What to expect?
First, we will drive to the starting point of the tour. Your guide will discuss the best options for snowshoeing with you, depending on the snow conditions.
At the starting point of the snowshoeing Slovenia tour, you will get snowshoes and hiking poles. Snowshoes are meant for walking on a thicker snow blanket since the larger bottom surface prevents sinking deep into the snow, and metal cogs on the sides prevent slipping on more icy terrain. Hiking poles will help you when walking uphill and downhill.
The guide will teach you some basic techniques for hiking in snowshoes. This will help you to learn how to climb and descend on different terrains properly, how to walk in an arch or circle, and how to cross a slope. The guide will also ensure your safety along the trails covered in snow.
This outdoor activity is a great winter workout that gives a strong heartbeat and intense body strengthening. Discover the charms of Alpine nature in winter and join us on an unforgettable adventure as you glide silently through the snow in the fresh mountain air.

We cannot guarantee you won’t get wet. Snow blankets can be only a few centimetres thick or up to half a meter or higher.

Yes. Just call us one day before the trip, so that we can prepare the equipment.
Do I need to pack a lunch?
You don’t need to. If you have particular dietary demands like gluten-free, we advise you to pack your lunch since mountain cabins usually only have a few options.
