Tromsø Safari

Guided Evening Snowshoe Trip with Bonfire

This excursion is a journey back in time: to the magical wintry world and the best childhood memories.

Follow your guide on a snowshoe walk and work as a team to light the outdoor bonfire. When you think things cannot be any better, speed down the hill on toboggan and find yourself laughing like a child again.

The activity takes place on the top of Tromsø island in a scenic area with birch and spruce forests and a snow park. Although it’s only a 10-minute drive from the city centre, we discover a very different landscape that is filled with snow and close to the nature.

You will put on modern snowshoes and follow your guide on a walk. You learn about our nature and everyday life in Tromsø and relish the feeling of crunching over, rather than sinking into, the snow. The walk takes about one hour and brings us back to the snow park where an important job needs to be done: together we will light the bonfire! Success is rewarded with hot drinks and lefse (a local sweet snack).

This is where you can spend the rest of your time, chatting with the guide and enjoying being outdoors. Or you can move up a level by climbing the nearby hill and enjoying the speed by sliding down – and feeling like the child again. As the weather can change quickly in the Northern Norway, everyone must wear warm clothes – wind-proof jacket/trousers, hats and mittens.
