FAQs: Snowshoeing in Norway

What should I know about Snowshoeing Norway?

Norway is certainly a haven for winter sports and snowshoeing is no exception. While the northernmost reaches of the country are the best spot to head out to for any snowshoeing adventure, farther south is great too.

Staying closer to the capital eases transport and is a slightly cheaper alternative to making the connecting flight farther north. Staying close to Oslo also means you can come a bit earlier in the season, while still having the chance, though a much slimmer one, of seeing the Northern Lights.

Heading farther north is your best chance to see this natural phenomenon. For those intrepid enough, heading to Svalbard is the ultimate spot and makes for an unbeatable snowshoeing adventures. Mind the polar bears that far up, though.     

Why should I choose Norway for my Snowshoeing adventure?

Excellent exercise

The winter might not seem like the ideal time to get out and exercise, but snowshoeing changes that. When it is too cold to hike, strap on some snowshoes and head out on the same trek that you would do in the summer. Norway is the perfect place with stunning scenery and plenty to explore.

From the endless slopes of the Lyngen Alps with their fjords that run from summit to sea, to the islands dotting the region of Troms, their is so much to see in Norway. Snowshoeing gets you out and exploring in nature. Get a chance to spot some of the earth's rarest wildlife, including polar bears and arctic foxes too.

The Northern Lights

Throughout the duration of the snowshoeing season – from March to May – there is always the chance to see the amazingly beautiful Northern Light. Created by light refracting off particles in the air at a low angle, this natural wonder is most prevalent at the beginning of the snowshoeing season and something worth seeing. It a take a week or more until it finally appears, but the wait is worth it.
