Snow and ice are no hurdle with snowshoes on your feet! Explore the beautiful arctic terrain around Svolvær in the Lofoten islands with an experienced mountain guide.

This is a fun experience for the entire family. Snowshoes distribute your body weight, giving you the ability to stay on top of deep snow.

The local guide will take you to unique spots and photo locations, and share stories of the area along the way.

There will be time to enjoy hot chocolate on one of the breaks. The trip takes approximately 3 hours, and the route will be adapted to the weather conditions.

When terrain is icy snowshoes are swapped for crampons. This will not impact your experience - it will still be loads of fun!

Transportation between Svolvær and the starting point of the hike is included in the tour.
