2-Hour Guided Snowshoe Walk on Tromsoya Island in Tromso
"After a slow morning - we start at 10am. Meet your guide in central Tromsø to start your tour. Hop inside a comfortable minivan or coach and travel into the snow-laden countryside and hills of Tromsøya Island. On arrival listen to a brief introduction strap on your supplied snowshoes and follow your guide at a steady pace. Relish the sensation of walking easily over the snow with your snowshoes. During the one and a half hour walk you crunch over sparkling flat terrain and gentle hills and pad through crisp snow that surrounds the tranquil spruce and birch forests. There are several stops planned along the way to admire the scenery and take photos. Hot blackcurrant drink and lefse — sweet Norwegian cake are served on route. < return to central Tromsø to finish your tour roam around the city or rest before your you head out again to watch the Auroras."""
