Snowshoeing with amazing view in Bardufoss
Snowshoeing is a fantastic way to experience the Arctic. Starting at Basecamp NORD at an altitude of 360 hight metres, you also get a wonderful view.
Departure by bus from Scandic Ishavshotel at 09.00, back in Tromsø at 18.00. The bus is run by Bussring and has Wi-Fi, a toilet and radio guidance. Organized in the period 01 December 2022 to 31 March 2023.
The Bardufoss region has an inland climate with calm and clear weather most days, which provides optimal conditions for northern lights and snow. With snowshoes on your feet, you can walk easily in rutted tracks on the mountain or off-piste, it is good to walk both in loose snow and on slopes.
At Basecamp you will be met by your guide and given snowshoes. You decide together whether the trip will go uphill or on flat terrain. Coffee break along the way, with cakes. After the trip, you will be served homemade soup at Basecamp, here you will also find a small shop where local products are sold, as well as a cafe and toilets.
You can also rent snowshoes and go on your own. And you can go at night - how about an atmospheric walk with a headlamp in search of the northern lights?
