Snowshoeing, train and bonfire in Raundalen with Wild Voss
You start your adventure by meeting up with your guide in the center of Voss. Together you take a short and comfortable train ride to the starting point of the snowshoe hike in Raundalen.
During a typical day out, 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 at all times. Snowy mountains with steep hillsides frame the valley on both sides. Deer, elks, and other wild animals can be spotted, if we are lucky.
At your lunch spot for the day, we build a bonfire together and enjoy something hot to drink and a bite to eat. Here’s an opportunity for you to learn what it takes to make a bonfire of your own. We use the heat of the flames to prepare our meal. If the weather is bad, we’ll join forces and build an improvised shelter to keep us dry and out of the wind!
You'll find that the time spent near the bonfire provides a good opportunity for contemplation and leaving the civilized world behind for a few moments.
On this tour, you follow the Leave No Trace principles and make use of zero-emission infrastructure whenever possible. Your guide will share knowledge about local culture, sites you visit, and local customs. Your guide will also advocate low-impact travel and raise the participants’ awareness of local wildlife.
This is a non-technical and family-friendly excursion. This trip is suitable for healthy people who would like to spend some time in peaceful, unspoiled nature. This trip takes you through woodland terrain, which means we are normally sheltered from strong winds and inclement weather. No prior hiking or skiing experience is required.
Tours are organized in the period December 2nd 2022 to April 30th 2023.
