What you'll do

DISCOUNTS for 2 and more people! Please contact for details and availability! We will start our trip in the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites. Our guide will show you the dazzling winter wilderness while hiking among the frozen pines blanketed in snow. We will head over to a wonderful local forest where we will strap on our snowshoes and go for a fluffy powder snow hike in the woods. The history of snowshoeing goes back to the distant past, to be more precise in the Paleolithic period, when man first encountered snow. Now snowshoes are used for winter entertainment and sports and have many different names, for example it’s sometimes called “Snow rackets” and their local name is "Ciaspes”. On Ciaspes we will hike for about 2 hours and take breaks when necessary. The guide will make sure that everyone goes in a comfortable pace. This trip does not require special skills so everyone can enjoy the mountain sceneries of Cortina on Ciaspes. This experience is a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the Cortina’s forest and do sports at the same time!
