This tour is conducted by Skibotn Hotel. Join us for a funfilled day snowshoeing in beautiful Skibotn. Together with our guide we will enjoy a snowshoe hike with a wonderful view of the Lyngen Alps and the Lyngenfjord.
Before we start the hike, our guide will show you how to put on and take of the snowshoes. We will head out into our arctic nature, while enjoying the views towards the majestic Lyngen Alps and the Lyngenfjord.
The trail follows a flat and easy terrain and we plan for several photostops along the way. During the hike the guide will tell you about Skibotn and the arctic nature we have here. We will also take a longer break where you get a warm drink and can try the norwegian snack lefse. You will also learn about the sami and kven culture in Skibotn and the region.
As the weather can change quickly here in Northern Norway, you need to dress warm - bring a windproof jacket and pants and good winter shoes.
