Snowshoe hiking is a special way of experiencing nature and a lot of fun for any age and ability. Follow your guide on an easy snowshoe walk through the winter landscape in beautiful nature. We don’t have to go far to find complete silence and wilderness through “unspoiled” scenery.
Our trips take ca. 4 hours, but you can do shorter or longer trips as you prefer. Depending on snow and weather conditions your guide will choose “a hike off the-beaten track” in the local area – so you can feel the wilderness that Vesterålen can offer. We will take a lunch break, lid up a campfire and warm up with a hot drink. If the conditions are right, we use a “kick sledge” to the start of the walk (1,5 km) and back.
Tours are running every day on request from 1st December until the 15th April. If the snow conditions are bad, we offer an alternative winter hike.
Language: English, German, French and Norwegian
The tour ends: 14:00/15:00 depending on where we walk
