Description

Take a peaceful winter tour near Zurich and relish in a guided snowshoeing program in Toggenburg! Spend a few hours cruising through iconic Swiss scenery and discover the magic in the snow steps of the Alps!

Snowshoeing is a fun activity for everyone to enjoy. It has been part of mountain culture, particularly in the Alps, for centuries, playing a major role in the development of early civilizations and their lifestyles. First conceived for hunting and gathering in the winter months, snowshoes have evolved into modern movement tools that we can enjoy today in a variety of ways – even recreation.

Your program is designed for just that – giving you a fulfilling day out in the snow and appreciating the incredible scenery in the Zurich area. We will be exploring Toggenburg, a stunning Swiss region with a deep connection to history and the land. The valley includes amazing mountain views while strolling past quaint architecture.

You have the option to travel through a variety of terrain, all within the safe guidance and instruction. My local knowledge will help us find the best views and sights while taking in the unique nature of the Swiss Alps. By beginning our tour at 10:00am, we will have the morning and afternoon to get lost in the blanketed beauty of the snow. It is a delight to meander through the charming area. You will undoubtedly find yourself at peace every step of the way.

I will also teach you some basic snowshoeing techniques. Along with learning to walk properly on the equipment, you will learn about its development over time and I would be happy to share some tricks and techniques that I’ve picked up from the sport.

All are welcome to join. It is an activity that requires a general fitness level and a passion for the snowy outdoors. Once you get on the snow, you will understand why snowshoeing is such an amazing experience, particularly in the Swiss Alps surrounding Zurich and Toggenburg.

Book this fascinating Toggenburg snowshoeing day program NOW and explore the area near Zurich for a magnificent Switzerland adventure!

If you want a bit more excitement, we can try a two-day glacier hike from Kanderfirn to Lotschental!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
