Daytime Snowshoe Hike at Fjellheisen

Picture the perfect fusion of serene beauty and a hint of adventure as we introduce you to the breathtaking vistas atop 'Fjellheisen' mountain, paired with an invigorating snowshoe expedition.

Join us for an invigorating 3-hour guided escapade, featuring a thrilling 1-hour snowshoe journey through the snow-draped trails of Fjellheisen mountain. As you tread along the ridge, soak in the exhilarating views of Tromsø city, cradled by the surrounding mountains and the glistening sea.

Your journey begins with a spirited welcome from our seasoned guide at the meeting point, followed by an exciting minibus ride to the lower station of the cable car, Fjellheisen Tromsø. From there, embark on a heart-pounding cable car ride to the upper station, perched gracefully on the Storsteinen mountain ledge, a awe-inspiring 421 meters above sea level. It's from this lofty viewpoint that your snowshoe adventure kicks into high gear.

Fear not, adventure-seekers! Our skilled guide will be your trusted ally, ensuring your comfort and confidence in snowshoeing while capturing every thrilling moment along the way.

As our exhilarating journey nears its peak, return to the upper station, where you can savor an energizing drink and indulge in a sweet pastry inside the Fjellheisen restaurant, known as Fjellstua. Finally, we'll descend by cable car and into the minibus that takes you back to town.
