Where to snowshoe in Tromsø?

ideas, directions, buses

When you pick up the snowshoes our staff can give you good advice regarding nice routes based on the weather and snow conditions at the time.

As most of us like to plan so at Tromsø Outdoor we prepared some tips on where to go:

- A very nice trip with snowshoes is from upper station of the Cable Car to the peak behind - Fløya, and further on (1-3hour walk),

- Rødtinden and parts of Kjølen massif on Kvaloya (bus nr 42 to Storelva, 3-5 hours) are second easily available and very attractive destination,

- Forestry area on the top of Tromsøya Island just in our town also provides a lot of beautiful terrain to explore.


This are safe areas accessible for everyone easily without the car or even by walking distance.

Cycling in Tromsø, Tromsø Outdoor

Great thank you to all the guests who paid us a visit this summer!

Thank you for your valuable feedback!

In a company like ours - privately owned, with focus on service quality and employees well being, trying to create all round positions and not very big - one major problem is always present: we never have enough time to do it all! 

Yesterday we finally got an hour (or few...) to evaluate and reply to the feedback we received from our guests via TripAdvisor lately.
