Hotel Rosslhof ****hotel
This comfortable hotel, run by the Royer family, is the perfect base for our snowshoeing week.
The hotel's facilities include a sauna and a steam room, perfect to soak our aching muscles after a day walking.
We also have free access to the nearby indoor swimming pool, located 50 metres from the hotel. All spacious bedrooms have en suite facilities, hair dryer, minibar and satellite TV.
All breakfasts and 7 dinners included.
There will be steep and dangerous terrain in the region, but this can be easily avoided in the choice of walks.
Each day the leader will carefully assess the situation and choose the route according to current conditions and those forecast, with the over-riding priority being group safety. Our leaders are required not to proceed with any proposed route (including those mentioned in brochure or trip notes) if they believe the risk to be unacceptable.
Snowshoeing is offered at Grade B/C, suitable for confident beginners and intermediates. Certain walks are dependent on weather conditions, and alternative routes may have to be completed if necessary.
Snowshoes are adaptable to fit most trekking boot sizes, however if you wear larger than UK size 12 boots (US13 or EU47) please let us know at the time of booking. We will then be able to confirm if we can provide suitable snowshoes for you.
Please refer to the 'risk of injury' section at the back of the Winter Activities brochure, or the online FAQs for this trip for further information.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 14. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Moderate/Challenging. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Winter Activities: It's about seeking out alternative ways to have fun in unspoilt locations, you won't find standard skiing or snowboarding breaks here.
Where you stay is a crucial part of a holiday, and we have gone to great lengths to find accommodation that provides extra comfort, character, convenience and value. Five-star hotels won’t feature on the agenda, but itineraries guarantee a greater degree of comfort after your day’s efforts.
