This snowshoe hike starts in Badia and takes hikers through the characteristic alpine landscape of the Armentara meadows. You walk across snow-covered meadows of unique beauty. The alpine huts and farmsteads along the way bear witness to the work of man: here the farmers have shaped the landscape through their labour over the years, maintaining an intact balance with the surrounding nature.
