The plan We will go to the municipality of Alp, in the region of Baja Cerdanya, where we will start a beautiful hike with snowshoes. It’s a track of more or less 3 hours with a positive level difference in between 200 and 400 meters (suitable for begginers). We have several options of hikes in the area and we will decide on the most appropriate one depending on the weather and snow conditions. Whatever route we choose to go to, the idea is to enjoy the snow, connect with the mountains and contemplate the beauty of the landscapes of this beautiful region of the Catalan Pyrenees.

In the afternoon, after the picnic we'll have some fun trying to feel like eskimos by building an igloo.
