Snowshoeing and stargazing with Wild Voss
This evening trip gives you the chance to feel 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. This is a non-technical and family-friendly experience in the snow. 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. During a typical trip, your guide will make sure you learn basic skills for safe travel in winter, introduce you to both nature and local culture and make sure you feel comfortable. Your headlamp will light up your surroundings, allowing for safe travel
even in the dark.
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 civilized world behind for a few moments.
We return to the ski resort before closing time and use the chair lift to get back down. An exhilarating experience in itself!
These snowshoeing trips are run when Voss Resort is open for evening skiing. Join us on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 4 p.m to 8 p.m from 16 December 2021 – 25 March 2022.
This is a non-technical and family-friendly experience. 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.
