Snowshoe hiking in the Soča Valley
The wild nature of the valleys of Triglav National Park and views on the snowy Julian Alps offer an unforgettable “retro” escape from the mad world.
Snowshoe hiking is a favourite method of exploring the isolated winter landscape. The wooden snowshoes used by our ancestors for winter hunting, forestry and military expeditions have been replaced by plastic snowshoes, an almost indispensable piece of winter sporting equipment. Today you may put on the “big shoes” as well and head for the snow shoe walks at day or at night, where the magic is additionally spiced up with the views of the starry sky.

If you are looking for romantic adventure, seek for the freedom for two: winter snow shoe walks with full moon and shooting stars will make at least one of your wishes come true.
Decide for Safe and Guided Snow Shoe Walks
