Snowshoe hiking tour

Snowshoeing is a great outing that is suited for most everyone. It is easy, fun and the view is always spectacular.

The day begins with meeting your guide at the pick up point by Radisson Blu Hotell in the city centre.

After a 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 suit up in warm arctic suits, 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.

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 time at the summit. 

From here we make our way back down to our arctic tent and enjoy a snack by the fire, with plenty of hot drinks and coffee to go along. After a good rest we head back home in the afternoon.
