Evening Snowshoe Hike at Fjellheisen

Evening Snowshoe Hike at Fjellheisen

Picture yourself walking on a snowy mountain trail while dusk is settling over the island of Tromsø.  

On this 3-hour tour, we will take you on a 1-hour guided snowshoe hike on top of Fjellheisen, and you will get to enjoy the breathtaking views of the city and its surrounding mountains. The perfect way to end your day in Tromsø and enjoy an active evening outdoors.

Our guide will meet you at the meeting point and bring you with a minibus to the lower station of the Cable Car (Fjellheisen Tromsø). Then, you will travel up by gondola to the upper station (Fjellstua), located on the mountain ledge Storsteinen, 421m above sea level. The hike on snowshoes will start from there.

Our guide will accompany you along the way to make sure you feel comfortable and confident walking on snowshoes and photographing all the magical moments during the tour. Finally, the hike will end back at the upper station, the Fjellheisen restaurant, where you will enjoy homemade waffles and a hot drink. Eventually, we will descend again by gondola and transfer you back to town by minibus.

Important note:

Our primary snowshoe season is from November until May/June depending on the snowfall for that year.

  • From November to the end of March, we can enjoy the night sky and have a chance to see the Northern Lights.
  • From April to May, the season changes; the nights become more like blue twilight, which can create beautiful scenery of colours in the sky.
