Moonlit snowshoe hikes with dinner at altitude

Wear snowshoes to walk on the snow colored by the red of the sunset and the white of the full moon, in the company of an expert Mountain Guide, enjoying a typical dinner in a lodge at the end of the activity.

Snowshoe walks at sunset and at night

If you love walking and can’t wait to enjoy the magic of the snow colored by the red of the sunset and illuminated by the glow of the full moon, take part in the snowshoe hikes organized on Monte Baldo, in Lessinia, on Monte Zugna, in the Leno Valleys at night, with a typical dinner at altitude.

Many appointments, on the occasion of the full moon, in the villages in the mountains overlooking Vallagarina.

In addition to the classic winter clothing, we recommend the use of ski poles together with snowshoes. We also suggest you to bring a hot drink to warm you up along the way.
