Snowshoeing and Skiing

If you can walk, you can go snowshoeing. Quite simply, it’s a way of walking easily on deep snow. Choose a guided trip of various levels of difficulty or go off exploring on your own. Cross-country skiing is very much a part of Northern Norwegian culture. A short lesson is recommended for absolute beginners, while the more experienced can conquer mountains – yes, both up and down.

Fishing

Photo: Bård Løken – www.nordnorge.com

You can’t visit Northern Norway without seeing if the fish are biting! If you head out to sea, catching a fish is virtually guaranteed. Coalfish (saithe), cod or wolf fish are among the most common species. As soon as the lakes have frozen, it’s time to go ice fishing. You are shown how to drill your own hole in the ice, bait the line… and enjoy the thrill of the wait. As it’s often a few degrees colder on a boat or frozen lake, you will be given an extra outer layer of waterproof clothing. Please remember to dress warmly underneath. Fishing gear is included.

A comfortable way to explore Tromsø and the region. Ever since the early 1900s Tromsø has been the starting point for a host of expeditions to the Arctic. Find your exploratory side by joining a gentle boat cruise or sailing a luxury catamaran to get close-up contact with the mountains, fjords and wildlife. Some of the tours include warm clothes, but as it’s often a few degrees colder out at sea it’s important to wear warmer under garments. Northern Norway is known for its impressive nature. Less than an hour from Tromsø by boat, you will be able to access the wild coast of the island of Kvaløya, a paradise for many bird species like the white-tailed sea eagle and puffin.
