Everything you need for Snowshoeing in Norway

Unsurprisingly, the one thing you need to go snowshoe hiking at Lyngen Lodge is a pair of snowshoes. These, along with extra equipment such as trekking poles / hiking sticks are all provided by Lyngen Lodge. Traditional snow shoes were made by binding tree branches together like a kind of tennis racquet. Now though, our snow shoes are made of lightweight aluminium. All you need is a good sturdy set of walking boots.

The Experience

Norwegian Snowshoeing Adventures with a purpose

A stay at Lyngen Lodge is defined by the perfect blend of physical activity and luxurious relaxation. This is equally true when you go snowshoe hiking. Depending on your requests, our guided tours typically lead to a traditional lavo tent at the spectacular Hammarsletta vierwpoint, where you can feast on some sausages and coffee from the open fire. Alternatively, evening excursions can take you to our mountain hut high above the fjord, where you can indulge in a glass of wine or some hot chocolate under the magnificent Northern Lights.
