How to snowshoe?

It doesn’t demand a perfect balance like skiing or a physical shape as athlete to go snowshoeing. If you can walk, you can snowshoe we like to say. The snowshoes will keep you floating on top of deep snow, and give excellent grip on icy conditions.

We will make sure to individually fit the showshoes and give you the practical training you need.

Snowshoeing is therefore a perfect activity for families, couples and individuals who wish to explore the winter wonderland of Fjord Norway
