5N - Snowshoeing In Tromsø

5N - Snowshoeing In Tromsø

  • Easy and pleasant activity everybody can join and enjoy.
  • Activity with focus on having fun, being outdoors and enjoying nature and snow.
  • Choose to be active or relax by the bonfire before heading back to the pier.
  • Great choice for families with children.

The tour starts with a short bus ride through a winter landscape of birch and spruce forests to the top of Tromsøya Island. Equipped with modern snowshoes, you easily walk on the snow, breathing in the crisp air and experiencing Norway´s frozen winter landscape like a local. Follow your guide through the forest and into a clearing, where you can help light the bonfire and then warm yourself by the blaze.

The guide shares knowledge about the surrounding nature, and interesting insights about traditional folklore, the local area and everyday life in Tromsø. Just when you thought it couldn´t get any better, you hop aboard a toboggan and speed down a snowy hill, laughing gleefully like a child again. After you’ve had your fill of fun, we return to the clearing, re-stoke the bonfire, warm ourselves and savour hot drinks and a sweet snack. It really doesn´t get much better than this!
