Wild Winter Snowshoeing

Winter snowshoeing is an amazing experience.

With this winter trekking you will live the wilderness in the harshest season.

That means you need to be prepared to extremely cold temperatures(till -25°) and uncomfortable situations.



In this specific the winter snowshoeing will bring us to reach the Avanzà refuge.

A small hut 6 Km and 5 hours of walk far from every human activity.

The shelter is a 6 bed hut with a small wooden stove.

The refuge is populated by animals also in winter and will be not difficult to see chamoix and ibexes.



The Avanzà shelter is near France border.

The second night the target will be the Vacca shelter in a neighbouood valley.

A small cousy hut in the middle of rocky snowy environment.

In this moment for sure you will feel as you will be the only abitant of the World!

The snowshoes here is possible only in certain snow conidtions.

Especially to reach Pietro Vacca is quite difficult and possible only with experienced people with no fear of void.

In case of not suitable snow conditions the hike target will be changed in places easier to reach.

In particular the Bivacco Orsiera on the other side of the valley.

Another option is to reach the San Camillo hut in Viu Valley.

Reviews for this Hike

    Bivacco San Camillo Wild Winter
    I was in bivacco San Camillo with Trekking Alps in January 2015, there was a lot of snow,windy day but also a lot of fun after. It was my first trip with Roberto but not the last. I highly recommend to have a wonderful trips/journey with Trekking Alps.
