Training contents

• Introduction:

If you are a nature lover, you are passionate about hiking and you have already made a trip of several days from shelter to shelter or in shops, you will surely have tried snowshoes already in winter. Entering a winter landscape immerses you in a completely different environment. Even a corner close to civilization about your senses in the most rugged environments. A bath of emotions and sensations difficult to explain. It sticks forever.

A trek with pulka gives you the opportunity to get further, more comfortably and thus be able to visit corners that would not be accessible on foot on one-day routes, where there are no shelters or facilities.

Crossing with skis or snowshoes with pulka is the natural progression for all those who practice hiking and trekking for several days in summer and want to carry out multi-day activities also in winter independently. This opens up a world of new possibilities, with itineraries, destinations and difficulties for all tastes.
