Guided Snowshoe Walk on Tromsoya Island in Tromso
From US$87.66
Overview
Walking across deep snow is difficult without the right equipment. This snowshoeing tour from Tromsø provides you with snowshoes and instruction so that you can experience the sensation of gliding across a true winter wonderland. Your guide takes you to the most scenic spots and provides an energizing hot drink and traditional Norwegian snack. Pickup and drop-off from the center of Tromsø is included.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a morning pickup from the center of Tromsø. Board the minibus and travel inland to the snow-covered hills of Tromsøya island.

After a brief demonstration, strap on your supplied snowshoes and follow your guide across the snow. Enjoy the sensation of gliding over, rather than sinking into, the deep snow. Traverse flat terrain and up gentle hills as you pad through the countryside surrounded by tranquil forest.

Make a few stops along the way to admire the scenery and savor tasty Norwegian snacks such as lefse (cake) and a hot blackcurrant drink.

Your tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Good fun!

We had an amazing day with Mathias, who was really knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. The hike up the hill ended with a beautiful view of the fjords, a warm drink and some delicious local cakes. Totally recommend it!
