1200 NOKper person
Take a deep breath of fresh air and feel the snow crunching under your feet!
Our snowshoe hike is a great way to really connect with the Arctic wilderness, clear your head and recharge your batteries.
Around 10:00 AM, the guide will pick you up from your accommodation on Tromsø island. Then we will head to our snowshoe hike spot on Kvaløya island. It’s about a one-hour drive through gorgeous landscapes, full of mountains, fjords and sandy beaches. We might see some reindeer, orcas, sea eagles, moose or other wild animals on the way.
Then it’s time to put on your snowshoes, leave civilisation behind and venture deep into the Arctic! Your guide will take plenty of pictures and share their knowledge of the region. At some point, we will take a short break for hot drinks and homemade sandwiches. We will also have a bottle of water prepared for you.
Our extra small group size gives our guide the possibility to adjust the intensity level to suit you. However, please remember that this tour requires you to be in good physical condition! Please contact us if you are unsure about the required fitness level.
Follow us into the wilderness and experience it for yourself!

IN CASE OF NOT SEEING THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

There are no refunds or free trips in the case that we do not see the Northern Lights.
Refunds will be sent back to the card that was originally charged for the booking. Depending on your customer's bank, the refund shows up between 5 to 10 business days after we proceed with the refund.
