Guided Snowshoe Trip on Tromsø Island
Join us on a short snow-shoeing trip in easy terrain.
This tour is designed for people with very little experience and for those who have never tried snowshoeing before. It’s also perfect for families with children from around eight years old.
We start with a short drive to the top of Tromsø island. Once we have put on our snowshoes and fastened our poles, the guide will provide advice about how to walk on snowshoes and then lead you through the flat and only slightly hilly terrain.
We stop several times during the walk to take photos and inform you about the Arctic nature and everyday life in Tromsø.
During a longer break, we serve hot drinks and lefse, a local sweet snack.
We walk slowly through a scenic area with birch and spruce forests and the opportunity to enjoy the view of the distant landscape of Kvaløya on one side of the island and the mainland on another.
* Please provide information about height, weight and shoe size of each participant in advance.
