Geilo - Vestlia

A workout that will make you smile.
No snowshoeing experience needed, just be in all right shape ;-).
It's uphill from here! Off piste between the trees, a chance to break a sweat. Snowy forests are magical, and the uneven terrain makes it fun.
Suitable for those who are used to hill walking, who can handle longer uphills and who enjoy being active outdoors.
Beautiful surroundings, fresh air and a workout! Can't get better :-)
Even more fun when it gets dark and we use the headlights.
You'll be back in time for dinner (and we all know that it tastes so much better after being physically active!)
You will get to wear a pair of advanced snowshoes with step-in bindings. These snowshoes have crampon like grip uphill, good floatation and traction.
Please bring solid shoes. High ankle hiking boots are best.
What to wear?
Dress warm, but not too warm. Dress for activity and bring an extra layer to add/ remove accordingly. Windproof shell layers are a must. We recommend a hooded jacket, a woolly hat, a neck/ scarf and mittens.
The choice of footwear is very important. Our snowshoe bindings will work on pretty much anything, BUT snowshoes don't protect your feet from getting cold and wet. Your feet are, after all, covered by snow most of the time. Footwear should be warm and comfortable to walk in. Roomy hiking boots and warm (woolen) socks are the best choice. No trainers or ski boots! We recommend the use of gaiters. If it is snowing heavily goggles are nice to have. From February onward bring sunglasses.
We arrange longer summit trips, too (for example 3-4h and day trips). Please get in touch: Geilo Aktiv
