This excursion is like a journey back in time - to a magic, wintery wonderland and the best childhood memories.
Follow your guide on a mysterious night snowshoe walk, speed down the hill on a toboggan and light up an outdoor bonfire.
See beautiful arctic Tromsø from a different perspective and hear about the ways of living of the local people. Follow your guide on a magical night snowshoe walk, then have fun in the snow - speeding down the hill on a toboggan. While taking a break from playing in the snow you can get warm by the campfire prepared by our guide (you are welcome to help!) and listen to stories about Tromsø, northern lights, Arctic nature, local history and everyday life in our city. If you are lucky the northern lights will dance through the sky above our heads as well!
We welcome everyone, also families with children, who would like to try snowshoeing (following your guide through the night landscape), tobogganing and relaxing by a campfire – no prior experience and preparations are needed. We provide all sports equipment and your guide is with you at all times.
If you feel that three hours is too long check out Guided snowshoe trip on Tromsøya (click to open). We follow the same route snowshoeing in the morning, but do not light up campfire and do not play with toboggans.
As the weather can change quickly in Northern Norway, it is recommended that you wear warm clothes and wind-proof jacket/trousers on all our tours. Winter clothes are not included in the price of the tour but can be rented separately at our rental center upon prior arrangement. You can also rent warm winter boots, should you need those too.
