Sam’s Winter Activity Weekend in Italy
Cogne, Italy – Wednesday 22nd – Sunday 26th January 2020

Join Coreconcept and Tracks and Trails in the Italian Alps! Excellent spa hotel, delicious Italian coffee and wonderful mountain scenery. Cogne is the perfect location for your first cross country ski and snowshoeing experience. Combined with Italian cuisine, comfort and cappuccino makes this the perfect winter break!

This long weekend is especially suited to those who are regularly active and would like to experience the mountains in winter. It is aimed at those who have little or no snow experience. All the activities are fun and very easy to pick up!

The base for this trip is in the delightful village of Cogne in the Italian Alps. Cogne, known as the ‘Queen of Italian Cross Country’ venues offers exceptional skiing away from the crowds in the Gran Paradiso National Park, which is also home to Italy’s highest peak the Gran Paradiso. Cogne is a lovely traditional village of stone houses, a Roman bridge and an eighteenth-century chapel. Our instructors are truly passionate about the winter sports and we keep groups small to ensure quality tuition.

  • Centrally located 3* Hotel & Spa
  • Learn to cross country ski with quality instruction
  • Snowshoe for lunch & visit the Lillaz waterfalls
  • Explore Italy’s ‘Grand Paradiso’ National Park
  • True Italian hospitality with fabulous food
  • Nordic Walk option

On this trip you will learn the basic ‘classic’ technique on flat or slightly undulating ground so that you can propel yourself across the snow efficiently. The action is similar to Nordic walking but simply with an ‘active’ slide instead of a stride! Once mastered you can progress to longer journeys at a pace that is right for you. Cross country skiing can, if you want it to, be a very aerobic activity. Enjoy sliding and gliding whilst getting fit along the way!

Snowshoeing is simply ‘walking’ in winter. We put snowshoes on our feet to stop ourselves sinking into the snow, and to generally make walking easier. Anyone, who is a regular walker or Nordic walker and enjoys the outdoors will soon love this activity.

No matter what your age you can still master the joy of Nordic or ‘cross country’ skiing. This is after all the original form of ‘skiing’ and in many countries is just a way of life.

Bookings and more information for this trip are done directly through Tracks and Trails using this link. This trip is open to partners of members of NWUK who are not Nordic Walkers.
