On arrival, we learn how to use the snowshoes and start the hike up a hilly mountain. This is one of the smaller summits of the area but you will get great views over the majestic surrounding mountains and fiord. We stop a few times during the walk for rest and photos. We provide you with information about our region and the Arctic environment. We will take a longer break and you will be served a hot drink and lefse (local sweet snack).
We will hike for about 400 metres up to the summit of the mountain, in a snowy terrain. A moderate level of fitness and health is required. The tour is not recommended for guests with heart condition or limited physical abilities. As the weather can change quickly in Northern Norway, participants must wear warm clothes, wind proof jacket, trousers and winter boots on all our tours. Clothes and boots are not included in the price of the tour but can be rented at our rental center (advanced booking needed).
