Explore the frozen landscapes around Tromsø on this guided snowshoe hike! Trek across Kvaløya, or Whale Island, on this uniquely fun cross-country skiing experience.
Tromsø Snowshoe Hike
The tour meets at 10 am at Kirkegata 1 in Tromsø. After 30 minutes by minibus, we'll find ourselves at base camp, on the island of Kvaløya.
At the camp we'll put on our thermal clothing, equip our snowshoes and grab some ski poles, depending on height. Then we'll set off, on a three-hour hike through the dramatic landscapes of Kvaløya.
During the tour, an English speaking guide will take you through the best trails on the island for an unforgettable day of snowshoeing! All the while you'll admire the frozen landscapes of the area, as your guide tells you all about this stunning wonderland to the north of Norway. Then we'll make a stop to enjoy a delicious picnic as we contemplate the views.
The tour will end at base camp, where we'll change our clothes again, and warm up in front of a roaring fire. Then from there, we'll head back to the centre of Tromsø, arriving at around 3 pm.
