Stargazing on snowshoes - Wild Voss
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.
