Snow Shoes Hiking

A mindful and slow way to explore Lofsdalen's mountains

Rent Snow Shoes at Karins Sportbod

Mountain hiking in winter with snow shoes is big on the continent. In the Swedish mountains it is gaining in popularity. There are clear benefits of walking with snow shoes. Low speed and control of the situation is one. And you come closer to nature than with any other form of winter activity. For people who feel untrained and unhappy with skiing, snow shoe hiking is a safe and fun alternative where you use your usual walking muscles. With snow shoes you walk on the snowmobile trails or freely in the terrain. Note: it is forbidden to walk in Lofsdalen’s nordic ski tracks.

Tours to try!

Aim high for Hovärken
