On silent shoes

Winter can also be experienced on foot. This is particularly alluring in the fairy-tale, winter wonderland of the Alta Badia valley.

Silence will surround you and the only sound you'll hear is snow scrunching underfoot. On winter hikes and snowshoeing, you'll be closer to nature than ever before. The rhythmic walking pace has a calming and almost meditative effect on the spirit. Your gaze will be held by the odd-shaped rock towers of the Dolomites and the cleanest mountain air will stimulate your mood. While you are stepping through virgin forests and across wide slopes, perhaps you will ask yourself whether, indeed, fairies and witches could have actually inhabited this place. It's quite possible. And you may even feel a bit like a mountain hero, while passionately engaged in winter activity adventures.
