Winter Wilderness Weekend
January  21-22d, 2022 Swiss Jura

"To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold."

Snow shoeing in Jura Mountain means immersing yourself into wild landscapes, getting to know local life and enjoy local food.

Stroll through snow caped trees that are reaching the sky and sometimes are hardly visible because of the amount of snow. It will make you feel like you have travelled to one of the Nordic countries! Yet you are still in the beloved Switzerland.

Submerge into the Swiss back country life, wilderness, allow yourself to get away from the hustle & bustle - join us to experience awe and adventure during this weekend in the mountain hut.

We will walk for 4-5 hours every day summiting local peaks, depending on the conditions. Each day we will make 5-8km with 400-600m+ of elevation gain. This experience is suitable for medium level hikers or beginners with good fitness condition. But as always in those trips- mindset and motivation are the most important elements.
