Something different

Snowshoe Walk in the Adamello Brenta Natural Park

“The great joy of snowshoes is the way they refresh our body and soul”explains the Alpine guide who accompanies us on our tour.

Ciaspolata in cima Paganella

As an introduction, we have decided on an easy walk, so we headed to the Andalo sports centre where the path around the lake begins. We spent a little bit of time working out how to fasten the snowshoes to our feet (it was the first time we had ever put them on) and then, grasping our hiking poles, we set off into the forest from where we could catch glimpses of the silent frozen lake to our right. 

The feeling you get from walking on snowshoes is like floating: the fresh snow creaks under your feet and the outsized snowshoes ensure you don’t sink in.

During the walk, we move silently through the enchanting forest in the Adamello Brenta Natural Park, a nature reserve where you can find many different species of plants and animals: we see silver firs and spruces, some beech trees without their leaves, whilst overhead a falcon whistles and we are glad that the brown bears that live around hear are currently hibernating.

I wonder if we will ever get up from this table!

After a gentle 50 minutes of walking, we reach the rifugio, the mountain lodge where we stop off for a tasty bite to eat.

The snowshoes have given us an appetite and we waste no time ordering: apple strudel and local Val di Non apple juice, hot chocolate with cream and the crumbly ‘fregoloti’ cake which is made with a shot of grappa.
