Guided snowshoe hike
On the trail of the wolf or the lynx and many others, while observing the hibernating trees...
A snowshoe outing with colleagues or friends to recharge your batteries, following the tracks of wolves, lynx, stoat, deer, wild boar or grouse, and many others. We will interpret their tracks and unravel the mysteries left by the fauna before our passage, and observe nature in the middle of winter
During a guided snowshoeing tour in the snow and in complete safety, a new world will be revealed to you. Signs of presence, tracks, sounds, wolf or fox tracks, deer, grouse or even capercaillie droppings: the seemingly quiet forest and snowy meadows will come to life as we go deeper into the wild. The stoat will signal itself by its frantic leaps, the fox's tracks will cross those of the hare, the wild boar will distinguish itself by its typical way of digging in the snow and the earth.

Was die Teilnehmer über diese Erfahrung sagen
You'll get immeasurably more from any trek if you seek out local guide and qualified mountain leader, Boudewijn van Doorn of Peak2Peace.
His passion and knowledge about the area's geology, terrain, environment and wildlife make him an essential for any mountain-escapade at any time of year.
"Why would I need a Mountain Leader?" I asked myself. "I've been hiking since I was a kid, I'm fit and I know it all. So no need for a Mountain Leader!" I thought. And then I had the chance to experience a hike with Peak2Peace and my world changed.
Boudewijn takes you in a complete new journey across mountains and nature. He makes you see everything under a new light, he shares stories and information about wild life, geology, nature and history.
Thanks to him I discovered a new, different approach to hiking and learned new things and lots of little secrets.
So today I go out as much as I can with Boudewijn as Mountain Leader because each time he takes me on an incredible, immersive, new journey in full security.
Boudewijn ticked all the boxes for a good guide, sharing knowledge, adding context to the destination, describing natural history and geology, and offering insights on contemporary issues. He also made great lemon and ginger tea!
