Stargazing on snowshoes - Wild Voss

Address: 5700 Voss Date: Tuesday 17 dec 2019 - Tuesday 21 Apr 2020 Show map

Address: 5700 Voss

Guided evening trip on snowshoes into the winter mountains of Voss. Snowshoes allow you to wander easily through deep snow and enjoy the winter landscape. Join our guide on a round trip on top of mount Hanguren, away from the lighted, groomed pistes. This evening trip gives you the chance to feel the what it’s like to be out in the dark winter mountains. On a clear night, the starry skies will spread out wide above our heads, adding mystery and beauty to our surroundings. If you are the playful type, you’ll cherish the opportunity to play around in the snow, dig a cave, slide down small cliffs, climb trees or follow grouse tracks.

We locate a suitable place for a rest, build a bonfire and enjoy hot drinks and a bite to eat. We use the heat of the flames to prepare our meal. Here’s an opportunity for you to learn what it takes to make a bonfire of your own. If the weather is bad, we’ll all join forces and build an improvised shelter to keep us dry and out of the wind. You'll find that the time spent around the bonfire provides a good opportunity for contemplation and leaving the civilised world behind for a few moments.

This is a non-technical and family-friendly experience in the snow!

This trip is suitable for healthy people who would like to spend some time out in the snow. This trip takes you through mountain terrain, where the weather could get cold and windy. No prior hiking experience is needed. The return ride on the chair lift could feel stressful if you are afraid of heights.
