SNOWSHOEING

DESCRIPTION

 

It seems that the history of snowshoeing began in Central Asia, some 4000 years before Christ. Probably the primitive men were inspired by some animals characterized by their large legs, which moved easily on the mantle of snow, while the man's feet sank in the snow. Walking with snowshoes is an activity that can also be practiced with children. It is a sport fit for everyone.​

Live a different family adventure, walk on snow in a virgin mountain landscape, an experience hard to forget. You just have to know how to walk.

We will enjoy an adventure in the mountains, shoes and snowshoes we will go through the snow. We walk towards a valley where you can see and feel nature at its best. Suitable for the whole family. A great private adventure!

The place to do the excursion will depend on the day you want to go and the conditions of the snow. We have three places with the best conditions near Santiago for trekking with snowshoes: Yerba Loca natural sanctuary, Cajon del Maipo or Farellones. Tell us what day you want to go and we will recommend you the best place!
