A wonderful way to explore more! 

Immerse yourself in the wild nature of the Northern Norway at its best during the snowshoe hike. 

Scenic drive along the fiord makes a perfect beginning of the tour. At the destination our guide leads you to one of the summits on Kvaløya island. Relish the feeling of crunching over, rather than sinking into, the pristine snow. Great views over surrounding majestic mountains and the fiord are the reward for the effort - we hike around 400 meters elevation to reach the top. Therefore the trip requires you to be used to physical activity, but previous snowshoeing experience is not needed.

Wearing proper winter boots and warm clothes is a must on this tour. 

We take good time for breaks to take photos, learn about the local countryside, and savor a hot drink and snack on route.

Itinerary Details

Itinerary

The tour starts with a 40 minute drive along a scenic road on Kvaløya island. On arrival, we learn how to use the snowshoes before we start our adventure!

We hike to one of the smaller summits with majestic views over the surrounding mountains and fjords (if, of course, the weather allows!). During the hike we stop a few times for rests, photos and to share our knowledge about our region and the Arctic environment. At the summit we take a longer break is longer to enjoy a hot drink and try some delicious lefse – a local sweet snack.

The hike to the summit is just under 400 m in snowy mountain terrain so a moderate level of fitness and health is required. The tour is not suitable for guests with a heart condition or limited physical abilities.
