Summer hiking or cycling through the park are very popular here, but some of the most interesting activities await visitors in the winter. You will have the chance to try snowshoeing, dog sledging, snow biking, winter hiking, and cross-country skiing. Snow can stay until summer, so there is plenty of time to discover winter forests, explore unspoiled environments, and enjoy the freedom of winter in the mountains. These activities are possible for any age and physical condition.
