Snowshoeing is a great outing that is suited for most everyone. It is easy, fun and the view is always spectacular.
After an aprox 30 minute scenic drive along the coast, we arrive at the guides chosen spot for the day according to weather conditions. During the ride we often come over domestic reindeer and other wildlife like sea eagles and ptarmigan.
At the foot of the mountains we put on our snowshoes and hike up one of the surrounding summits. The guide will make sure you are safe and keep you out of avalanche terrain. As we go higher the view increases untill the fjords lay beneath out feet, stretching out for miles in every direction.
The peaks around Tromsø are scenic as they generally rise from sea level and give you a spectacular view of the surrounding fjords and mountain ranges.
When the weather permits we spend a fair time at the summit before beginning our ascent.
After descending the mountain we head down to a local and well known coffee shop situated in an old renovated fish factory. Here we enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or coffee along with home made kake before returning to city centre.
