This is a great choice for those who want to explore more! Immerse yourself in an outdoor snowshoe hike. Experience wild nature and North Norwegian elements at their best.
The tour starts with a scenic 45-minute drive on Kvaløya island.
On arrival, we learn how to use the snowshoes before we set off on the adventure.
We walk up one of the smaller summits. You will be rewarded with great views of the majestic surrounding mountains and the fjord, providing the weather allows us to see them.
We stop a few times during the snowshoe trek to rest, take photos and inform you about our region and the Arctic environment.
During a longer break, we serve hot drinks and lefse, a local sweet snack.
The elevation to the summit is just under 400 m in snowy terrain so participants need to be fit and healthy.
N.B: This tour is unsuitable for guests who are not active in their everyday life or who have a heart condition or restricted physical ability. Participants must be used to physical activity, but no previous snowshoeing experience is required.
* Please provide information about height, weight and shoe size of each participant in advance.
