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.
During the spring, average temperatures hover around freezing. Accounting for windchill, however, can make temperatures feel much colder. Spring is also one of the driest seasons of the year, but don’t worry, there’s still plenty of powder to enjoy.
Just about every trip to Norway begins with a flight into Oslo’s international airport (OSL). From here, you will be able to transfer to airports farther north. The most common one for snowshoeing is the one in Tromso (TSO).
