Snowshoeing is the best way to enjoy nature up-close in the wintertime. Much easier than skies and accessible for most people. With snowshoes on your feet, you can reach higher peaks as well as enjoying the backcountry of Lofoten. Our guides have multiple suggestions ready for you, both regarding Lofoten and Vesterålen. It is your own physical condition and of course the weather that given day, that decides what the best option is.
Our guides know the backcountry by heart and will guide you on tours that are safe from avalanches and will give you great views of the Vestfjord and the mainland of Norway. Our TUBB snowshoes are lightweight and easy to use, with great flexibility for the foot and have a good grip for the harder snow-packed parts. We also have poles and recommend the use of these.
Preferable you use your warm sturdy winter shoes, that will keep you safe and warm. What else to bring, a small backpack, to bring your lunch and a thermos with a hot drink, extra warm clothing (wool is recommended), and seat pads to keep you warm while enjoying your lunch.
Lofoten Aktiv enjoys taking smaller groups up to 15 persons into our backcountry.
