Snowshoeing in Candanchu

Snowshoeing in Candanchu

What are you thinking about doing this weekend?

I wondered the same question last week and I decided to go snowshoeing. On the border with France, at the head of the Valle de Canfranc there are some fantastic snowshoeing routes.

Making fresh tracks in the snow – fantastic!

I decided to go to “El Bosque de las Hayas” or Beech Forest; between Candanchu and France. You can park at the ski resort and head out from there.
The weather was superb!! We had a really sunny day and the temperature didn´t get lower than -1.

During the excursion, I not only had the opportunity of enjoying of really nice views, but also could walk through the forest.

At the beginning of the itinerary, it is the cross-country skiing track and you have to take care of don´t break the trail – otherwise all of the cross country skiers fall over!

I think it’s an ideal excursion for snowshoes with great views – if you are in the area give it a try!
