There were 7 on our tour for the 2 hour snow shoeing tour. Short drive to the middle of the island, get fitted out with snowshoes and off we went. It was gentle terrain up and down, through the trees. Mauri, our guide, was funny and informative keeping everyone in good spirits.

We took the 2-hour tour snowshoeing on the Tromsoya island. It was fun and we really enjoyed the fluffy snow and the landscape. With a very little uphill part, the activity is suitable for all kind of visitors.
