SNOWSHOEING AT NATURLAND
Location and contact
A silence only broken by the odd sound from the forest’s inhabitants you will discover with every footprint. You can organise the excursion yourself, using your own equipment or renting it at the park, or you can go on a guided tour where you’ll be accompanied by an expert guide who will explain the secrets of the surroundings and the animals that live there. This excursion lasts two hours.
Two routes to discover La Rabassa
Snowshoeing is an easy activity that is suitable for people of all ages and physical conditions. At Altitude 2000 we have two completely marked routes that are perfect for practising this activity:
- Footprint Trail:
walk on the wild side on this route in the middle of the mountains and take in the breathtaking scenery. Following the Roca de Pimes trail, the route takes you all the way to the refuge bearing the same name. Expect to see lots of incredible flora and fauna on this wonderful journey through the La Rabassa forests.
- Smugglers’ Route:
this circuit starts along the same route as the Footprint Trail before taking the Roca de Pimes trail and reaching Caborreu canal. Next you continue until arriving at the bunker in the Pinés plains. From here, the path climbs slightly up to the Bescaran viewpoint. Once there, the route descends alongside the Roca de Pimes refuge.
The cherry on top of these two routes is the amazing views you’ll enjoy of Pic Negre, which stands at 2642 metres tall.
Excursions with professional guides
Another way to try this activity is with the help of our team of professional mountain guides. Request your own guided excursion and get ready to discover the most captivating scenery that the resort has to offer with your safety guaranteed. You’ll have the chance to pass through the La Rabassa forests and get close to the flora and fauna that inhabit them, all while taking in the most iconic parts of the region’s beautiful snowy landscape. This activity lasts three hours and is suitable for the whole family. Children from 6 years of age.
