2-Hour Guided Snowshoe Walk on Tromsoya Island in Tromso
This trip is the perfect way to start the day!
Stride through Tromsø’s winter wonderland on a guided 2-hours snowshoe trek. Venture out of the city to snow-laden top of the Tromsø Island, get instructions from your guide, don your snowshoes and set out into the deep snow. Follow the trails around forests and hills, and relish the feeling of crunching over, rather than sinking into, the pristine snow. Take a break for photos, learn about the local countryside, and savor a hot drink and snack on route.
Tour is designed for people with little or no experience, all level of fitness, age and skills, families with children from 8 years old and everybody who loves to be outdoors. Perfect if you have never experienced snow or snowshoeing before.
After a slow morning - we start at 10am. Meet your guide in central Tromsø to start your tour.
Hop inside a comfortable minivan or coach, and travel into the snow-laden countryside and hills of Tromsøya Island.
On arrival listen to a brief introduction, strap on your supplied snowshoes and follow your guide at a steady pace. Relish the sensation of walking easily over the snow with your snowshoes. During the one and a half hour walk you crunch over sparkling flat terrain and gentle hills, and pad through crisp snow that surrounds the tranquil spruce and birch forests. There are several stops planned along the way to admire the scenery and take photos. Hot blackcurrant drink and lefse — sweet Norwegian cake are served on route.
After the walk, return to central Tromsø to finish your tour, roam around the city or rest before your you head out again to watch the Auroras.
