Nope, you don’t need to be a skier to experience a winter wonderland à la Norway.
If you know how to walk, you know how to snowshoe.
The only thing you need to keep in mind is to lift your knees slightly higher than usual.
Snowshoes give you a good grip on icy and slippery surfaces.
Give it a go with an experienced guide! After showing you the right technique, they’ll take you to places that will take your breath away.
Like here, on a trip in Fjord Norway …
… or on classic Norwegian hikes to places like Trolltunga (pictured), Kjerag, and Preikestolen (the Pulpit Rock).
Just remember that these trips are even tougher in winter than in summer. Go with a guide – especially toTrolltunga or Kjerag.
And remember that it’s fine to cheat a little bit :)
In Nordfjord you can whoosh up the mountain with Loen Skylift and lace up your snowshoes on the top.
Bring your camera!
Or just enjoy that special silence you only get in winter forests full of sparkling snow crystals, like here at Gålå.
Snowshoes are also a good move if you’re determined to spot the northern lights in untouched nature.
Join a local guide for the best chance of a dance with Aurora.
But – to realise how small we are in relation to the grand, wild nature, is priceless in itself.
The length or level of your tour doesn’t matter – on every snowshoe trip you deserve a break with a steaming hot drink.
