Snowshoeing in the Brand valley

For many people, winter hiking is the best way to get about.  When the winter sun sparkles on the snow-covered trees,  the slopes glitter and you leave your tracks behind in the white fairytale landscape.  An exciting way of getting around in winter is snowshoeing (hiking in snow shoes).  Many of our beautiful mountains in the Brand valley, which are ideal for hiking in the summer, are also easily accessible in winter.  And with snowshoes winter hiking becomes an adventurous experience in the midst of the most beautiful winter landscape.
