Walking in the Krkonose with Snowshoes

The principle of walking with snowshoes takes after observations of nature. Having seen the slim lynx easily walk on snow with its wide paws, people tried to make the same paws for themselves.

Snowshoes have prongs below the tip and foot which pierce the snow and prevent slipping. Walking in them isn’t difficult once you become accustomed to taking wider and longer steps; then you will be faster than ordinary hikers. Just hire them in the mountains and try taking a walk across the snow-covered countryside.

Just be considerate to cross-country skiers and do not damage groomed cross-country tracks with your snowshoes.
