Full description

Northern Norway has a unique nature, which changes with varying colors and light of the four seasons. This tour takes you right in the middle of these amazing landscapes.

The tour starts from Tromso city center, from where you will head to the coast on the west side of Tromso. With a small group size, 8 people maximum, you will have an intimate and cozy experience. Be driven to the countryside of Tromso. Depending on the snow conditions and weather, the walk will be done either with or without snowshoes.

In the autumn months of October and November, you'll get to enjoy the colorful countryside before it is covered with a thick layer of snow. In the winter, the landscape will be white with snow to play in. After the drive, stretch your legs on a nice walk up a small mountain. The Arctic nature offers you an unforgettable experience. During the walk you can view wildlife and when you reach the summit you will be provided with lunch.

Your guide will take photos on the tour and share them with you after the trip, free of charge. Just enjoy the hike.

It was a fantastic experience. First time on snowshoes thru the frozen lake with a incredible mountain landscape around. It was also interesting thanks to Max, who is proffesional, helpful and friendly guide with a great knowledge concerning Norway and its nature. He also organized for us a camp with sandwich,hot tea/coffee, hot chocolate and homade cookies. Thank you very much and all the best.

It was our first time in this kind of trip. We enjoyed it a lot. The guide, Ellie was amazing, fresh and full of stories. The equipment was perfect, lunch very good, the warm tea and chocolate perfect. We wanted to do it again but it was fully booked. Understandable.

We love hiking, but it was our first experience with snowshoeing. Peter is an amazing guide who talks about several things and explains them well and answers our questions. It was our last activity in Tromso, and it gave a lasting impression. We will do it again if we visit Tromso ever again.
