At Due North Safaris we have a full range of trails to cover on one of our snowshoe safaris. Whether you are just looking for a gentle meander through the forests to take in the magnificent ‘postcard perfect’ scenery or are up for an energetic hike up one of the fells – we can accommodate you. All given times include any transfer time. Please note that the half day and full day trip destinations will be chosen by the guide on the day of the tour based on conditions.

Mystical Forest Walk

An easy and calming snowshoe walk through the mystical forest where most of the time, all you hear is your own foot steps as you trek over the snow covered forest floor. Majestic old pine trees draped with snow watch over as your guide leads you to a comfy spot to take a small coffee break.
