VAL D'EGA

Snowshoe hiking in the Dolomites Eggental

Snowshoe hiking in the Dolomites of Val d’Ega

Cross-snow through the winter

Take a pair of snowshoes, strap it onto your hiking boots – and off you go! Through the depths of the Dolomite winter in the Catinaccio and Latemar areas. Striding over glistening snow blankets, walking on the snow instead of sinking into it. Snowshoe hiking, just like winter hiking, is the most gentle of all winter sports!

But extreme caution is also required when snowshoeing! If the snowshoe hiker is on the move in open terrain, in addition to tour planning based on the avalanche situation report and carrying emergency equipment should be standard by now. 

Snowshoe hiking with conscience 

When hiking through the winter landscape, it is important to be aware of our surroundings and to put ourselves in their place! Here you will find important information on how to experience the natural beauty of the Val d'Ega without harming wildlife!  

Well equipped ...

No snowshoes? No excuse! You can hire the equipment on site in the Carezza and Obereggen skiing areas!

… and well guided!
