From the meeting point in front of the Hotel Ristorante Buona Stella we will go on snowshoes to the feet in the thick of a luxuriant beech forest, where we will follow the evident traces of the hares and the other wild animals. We will then cross a dense fir plantation and reach the plain that hides the icy shores of Lago della Ninfa (Bar Ristorante Lago della Ninfa) we will descend into the lake basin for a short and well-deserved break. On the way back we proceed zigzagging freely in the beech forest, for a unique experience completely immersed in the beauty of the winter forest until we reach the starting point.
