Snowshoeing on Hanguren with Wild Voss
This trip is a good way for you to get a real winter experience without using skis. 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 day out, your guide will make sure you learn the basic skills for safe travel in winter, introduce you to both nature and local culture, and make sure you feel comfortable at all times.
Your guide will help you gear up with proper clothes and snowshoeing equipment. We use the chair lift to reach the starting point of our snowshoeing trip, at the very top of mount Hanguren. The weather can be windy up here, so you’ll soon appreciate the extra layers of clothing.
At our lunch spot for the day, we 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 and use the chair lift to get back down. An exhilarating experience in itself! Return your equipment and use a free bus service to get back to Voss station.
Trips are run daily as long as the lifts at Voss Resort are open.
