On the 24th the ski lifts close at 2pm, so there is plenty of time that day!
We go for a little snowshoe hike in the nearer surroundings of Vestlia Resort. We stop to make a fire and soak up the Christmas atmosphere.
This is an easy snowshoe trip for everybody who enjoys being outdoors (beginners and families). Snowshoeing is fun, and this trip is for everyone who can walk in uneven terrain. No previous experience needed. From Vestlia Resort we snowshoe towards and onto the lake "Ustedalsfjorden". The trip is only a short distance and mainly flat.
What to wear?
Dress warm, but not too warm. Dress for activity and bring an extra layer to add/ remove accordingly. Windproof shell layers are a must. We recommend a hooded jacket, a woolly hat, a neck/ scarf and mittens. The choice of footwear is very important. Our snowshoe bindings will work on pretty much anything, BUT snowshoes don't protect your feet from getting cold and wet. Your feet are, after all, covered by snow most of the time. Footwear should be warm and comfortable to walk in. Roomy hiking boots and warm (woolen) socks are the best choice. No trainers or ski boots! We recommend the use of gaiters. If it is snowing heavily goggles are nice to have. From February onward bring sunglasses.
We've got other snowshoeing trips on our weekly program. We also do private trips for you and your friends/ family.
And we arrange fatbike trips! Please feel free to get in touch: Geilo Aktiv
