An excursion to admire the magnificent winter scenery of the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise. In winter everything is cloaked in a pure white color and a surreal silence envelops the valleys of the Park. Snowshoeing is an unique and comfortable to walk in the midst of these scenarios. Also suitable for those who can not ski in recent years have revolutionized the winter hiking. Snowshoes, allowing the boot to be based on a wider area, let us not sink into the snow. Nature in winter seems to fall asleep, but if you look carefully it is more alive than ever. The signs of the passage of the animals are most visible in the snow and snowshoes allow us to go comfortably to the discovery of the forest in winter. An experience to enjoy the magic athmosphere of mountain hut in winter.
