Take this opportunity to try a classic Norwegian winter activity: snowshoeing. The excursion starts with a short bus ride that takes you to the top of Tromsøya Island. The mainly flat area is a patchwork of snow-dusted birch, spruce forests, and a few gentle slopes.

Wearing snowshoes, you’ll feel as though you’re floating above the snow as we set off on a short walk. Breathe in the crisp winter air, admire in the winter scenery while your your guide shares stories about the nature and everyday life here in the Arctic.

Follow the guide through the forest to a clearing where we’ll set up a cozy bonfire. Enjoy a hot drink and a sweet snack while swapping stories around the fire, or even relive childhood fun by sledding down the slopes on a simple toboggan.
