Take a break for photos, learn about the local countryside, and savor a hot drink and snack on route.

Traverse flat terrain and up gentle hills as you pad through the countryside surrounded by tranquil forest.

We took the 2-hour tour snowshoeing on the Tromsoya island. It was fun and we really enjoyed the fluffy snow and the landscape. With a very little uphill part, the activity is suitable for all kind of visitors.

We had an amazing day with Mathias, who was really knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. The hike up the hill ended with a beautiful view of the fjords, a warm drink and some delicious local cakes. Totally recommend it!
