Snowshoeing in - winter wonderland - Aurora Alps

Snowshoes are footwear for walking over the snow. Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the person over a larger area so that the person's foot does not sink completely into the snow, a quality called "flotation". Snowshoeing is a form of hiking.

Traditional snowshoes have a hard wood frame with raw hide lacings. Some modern snowshoes are similar, but most are made of materials such as lightweight metal, plastic, and synthetic fabric. In the past, snowshoes were essential tools for fur traders, trappers and anyone whose livelihood depended on the ability to get around in areas of deep and frequent snowfall. However, snowshoes are mainly used today for recreation, primarily by hikers and runners who like to continue their hobby in the wintertime.
Snowshoeing is easy to learn and in the right conditions is a relatively safe and inexpensive recreational activity
You now have the chance to visit Aurora Alps and doing this exciting activity together - at the edge of Tromsø.

All tours provide a good atmosphere in different ways and require no previous experience. If you can walk then you can do snowshoeing... It's easy, fun and healthy. You will also have good exercise, regardless of your age and shape.
