Take a break from a normal run-of-the-mill vacation and enjoy some snowshoeing fun in Sweden. This sport has become very popular in Sweden, and the number of tourists who visit Sweden to enjoy some snowshoeing is growing by leaps and bounds every year.
Learning the technique of snowshoeing is not difficult, and one can easily get used to it in just a few minutes. The comfortable and lightweight modern snowshoes add to the fun factor. Unlike skiing, there is no need for you to hire a trainer or a guide while pursuing this sport.
While visiting Sweden, ensure that you try out this sport. Here is a typical snowshoe adventure in Sweden. You may start off by having breakfast at the Vålådalen mountain station where you will be assisted by a guide who will ensure that your equipment is in order before you proceed ahead. After lunch, you will head towards the pristine wilderness of Vålådalen Nature Reserve. The next few days are spent snowshoeing and exploring the amazing wilderness that can only be found there.
There are no fixed itineraries for such tours and they can be tailor-made as you wish relevant to your level of experience.
The amount of distance that you will be able to cover daily depends on your experience as well as the weather and the amount of snow. Since snowshoeing is an easy sport to learn, prior experience is not required.
In fact, once you proceed, you will find that it is extremely easy to move around on snowshoes. However, it is required that you are physically fit as you may be carrying a backpack with your belongings. If this is not feasible, you can rent a sled in which you can keep your belongings and pull them along.
Enjoy a winter sport that is easy to learn and a sport that you will most likely come to love and return to year after year.
