Overview
Take a walk on the wild side of Tromsø on this small-group outdoor hiking tour and explore the Arctic nature on foot. You'll be taken to the countryside of Tromsø in the middle of beautiful mountains, fjords and valleys, where you and your group will snowshoe up a small mountain or along a valley with a guide. On the tour we will be using snowshoes, which makes it easier and a lot of fun to walk on the snow. In autumn months and late spring when there is not much snow, the tour is a hiking tour without snowshoes.

The snowshoeing experience with Wandering Owl was easily the best day of our trip! Our guide made the day so fun. All of us had never snowshoed before and had a great intro to it. We were able to climb to a beautiful spot outside Tromsø. Could not recommend this more!

We were picked up from the scandic hotel opposite Radisson Blu. The nice thing about these tours is that max group size is 8 (6 of us on our tour) so it doesn’t feel at all touristy. The guide picks the location based on weather and personal choice. Our guide Karolis picked a

Thank you for the feedback! We love receiving feedback from our guests, it motivates our team during these cold winter months to give our guests the best possible experience with us. Of course, as you know we can not promise anything to do with the weather (like good snow for snowshoeing or Aurora activity) but we can promise a positive experience; home-made meals, hot chocolate and biscuits - all made freshly (and with love)  in our Owls Nest. It has been a pleasure to have you on tour with us and we hope to welcome you back to Tromso again one day. Thanks again!

We were a bit apprehensive before this excursion as we had never tried it before and had no idea what it entailed. We needn't have worried - we spent the most perfect half day snowshoeing up a mountain surrounded by fjords, frozen lakes and beautiful scenery. The sun shone and
