To the hut by snowmobile. Picture a mountain hut at over 1700 meters, a magical place that can only be reached by snowmobile or snowcat. Here you can savour typical local dishes, prepared with creativity, accompanied by a breathtaking view. It is also possible to go back to the valley on foot or thanks to the hut vehicles.

Daytime and moonlit snowshoeing are more and more loved by winter holidaymakers in Lessinia: with snowshoes at your feet, you can also walk well on untrodden paths and therefore you can broaden the number of your hikes and even reach some huts at higher altitudes which are open even in winter.

Walk along the trails of Lessinia for your snow hikes and immerse yourself in the muffled peace of the surrounding nature, where flora and fauna will surprise you even in winter. In the cold months, the winter trails are well marked, so that they can be easily covered with mountain boots.
