Leave the beaten tracks behind, immerse yourself in the polar night and walk your way under the night sky. This winter activity gives adventurous travelers the chance to experience snowshoeing at night time and to feel what winter really is about at high latitudes. Fully equipped for the climate, our guide will lead you to untouched snowy landscapes and shows you how to read the tracks of wildlife. During the tour you will be served our home-made soup and a cup of our special hot chocolate, if the conditions allow it will be under a billion stars, the moon and may be even the Northern Lights.
