In Carnia with the “ciaspolade”

11.01.2010 - 21.03.2010

Up to the 20th March, guided tours with “ciaspole” have been organised in the region, they are typical snowshoes to walk without sliding.



Up to the 20th March, the Agenzia Turismo Friuli Venezia Giulia organises in different places in Carnia a lot of guided tours with “ciaspole”, the typical snowshoes, which must be wore on the normal shoes and allow you not to slide on the snow.
Different paths are envisaged, expert guides are there and know all the naturalistic and environmental but also historic and traditional aspects of the territory. These excursions are suitable for everyone, even a small physical training is needed. A proper wearing is needed.
The ciaspole are handed by the guide, but the poles are strongly suggested like sky wearing, gloves and cap, thermal shoes (not Moon Boot) gaiters to protect calves and sun glasses for day excursions and torches for those in the afternoon/evening  and a bag with food and drink.

Useful information
