Small-group Snowshoeing Tour from Tromso

Save

Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    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 (maximum eight people), you will have an intimate and cozy experience.

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

    I had a great experience doing the snowshoeing activity today! Our guide Karols (I don't know if I'm spelling it right) was considerate and chose a region where none of us had been before since some of us did some snowshoeing before. We were 5 people including the guide. We

    We had an outstanding day with Tommy from Wandering Owl! My wife and I lucked out and ended up getting a private trek. Tommy took us up a beautiful mountain with absolutely incredible 360 views. While we were on top of the mountain, the full moon came out (a little after noon)

    The snowshoeing experience with Wandering Owl was easily the best day of our trip! Our guide made the day so fun. All of us had never snowshoed before and had a great intro to it. We were able to climb to a beautiful spot outside Tromsø. Could not recommend this more!
