Snowshoeing on the trails of history

Relive the events of a war fought in the snow and on the rocks at sunset thanks to the narration of a re-enactor wearing a faithfully reproduced uniform.

This is made possible by a snowshoe hike to the restored Italian stronghold of WW1, Cima Gallina, accompanied by a mountain guide.

This one-hour* excursion on snowshoes is also suitable for children.
The rate includes the rental of snowshoes, poles, a headlamp, the accompaniment by a re-enactor and a mountain guide, and a snack inside the restored barrack.

For further information, prices and  reservations, please contact the Col Gallina Refuge.
