When you pick up the snowshoes we can recommend you some nice routes based on the weather and snow conditions at the time.
As most of us like to plan, Tromsø Outdoor has written some suggestions below on where to go:
This are safe areas accessible for everyone easily without the car or even by walking distance.
For a multiday trip we recommend to snowshoe along a trail starting in Tromsdalen or Kroken leading to Snarbyeidet. It is a relatively safe route and there are four DNT cabins along the route. You can also hike just parts of the way - click here for more information about the route. There is a bus from Tromsø to Oldervik that stops in Snarbyeidet, you can find the schedule on tromskortet.no.
If you want to go in steeper terrain, you need a guide who knows about the avalanche risks and how to assess the avalanche danger. You can rent avalanche safety equipment at Tromsø Outdoor with the snowshoes. Remember to always wear clothes appropriate for the weather and have some extra warm clothes, mittens, hat and food in your backpack.
