This tour is conducted by Visit Bardufoss. Experience the fantastic landscape of the Bardufoss Region with snowshoes on your feet! Only two hours from Tromsø.
Have you ever tried walking on snow? With snowshoes you can! Snowshoes are a fun and liberating way to experience the arctic wilderness. The snowshoes will keep you on top of the deep snow, which makes them easy to maneuver, and are a great alternative to skiing and walking. Your guide will welcome you at Basecamp Snowman and teach you how to buckle your snowshoes on. Together with your guide you decide which route you want to walk: you can follow the trodden trails or walk freely out in the natural snow to explore the wilderness. Along the way you will be served hot drinks by the bonfire! The Bardufoss Region has stable inland climate with still weather and clear skies most days, which provides the perfect conditions for snow and observing the northern lights. If you head out at night time, you will be provided with headlights! Maybe you will see the northern lights?
You do not need any previous experience or knowledge to participate in the snowshoes activity. After the snowshoes tour you will be served warm homemade soup at Basecamp Snowman. Here you will also find a small souvenir shop, a café and pub, and toilet facilities.

The best way to visit us is by driving your own car to Basecamp Snowman.

Walk a few hundred meters over a footbridge until you reach the main entrance of Basecamp Snowman.
If you wish to visit us by bus, you can arrive at Buktamoen with bus nr. 100 from Narvik or Tromsø. The bus leaves from Narvik Bus Terminal and arrives at Buktamoen. From Tromsø, the bus leaves from Prostneset and arrives at Buktamoen. You can pre-book pick-up at Buktamoen at an additional cost, where you will be transported to Basecamp Snowman. Please note that no local bus lines drive back to Tromsø or Narvik at night time, so you will need to pre-book accommodation at Rundhaug Gjestegård if you wish to attend night time activities. Local bus transfer (tromskortet.no) and accommodation must be booked on our own initiative.
