Snowshoeing and Snow-trekking in Switzerland

Trekking through winter wonderland on a pair of snow-shoes is one of the greenest activities to enjoy in the winter season.

Plus, there’s none of the fuss of having to bother with the usual ski equipment. Just strap on a pair of snow-shoes and off you go into the crunching virgin snow. Switzerland’s stunning mountains are fantastic choices to head to this winter for a memorable slow travel experience on snow-shoes.

You’re really spoilt for choice when it comes to the array spectacular views of glistening snow fields and journeys across high plateaux and through hidden valleys in the Swiss Alps. After a day of winter fun, there is nothing better than relaxing in a cosy chalet or quaint mountain hotel.
