– A fantastic snowshoeing tour in Voss, Norway

Snowshoeing is a type of hiking that involves walking over snow with the assistance of footwear that displaces weight over a larger area.
With origins roughly 4,000 to 6,000 years ago, this is the original snow sport – using the term “sport” loosely.
Through the centuries it has played a vital role in remote mountain survival, with trappers and traders utilising snowshoes to traverse the inaccessible regions of the wilderness and anyone whose life or living depended on the ability to get around in areas of deep and frequent snowfall, and others who must be able to get around areas inaccessible to motorised vehicles when the snow is deep.
