On a snowshoe trip with XXLofoten you get to experience the nature and winter light of Lofoten with a local guide. Snowshoeing is an easy way to get close to nature without too much hassle, and everyone can use them. Our experienced guide is ready to take you out on a guided 3 hour trip. Our aim is for you to enjoy intriguing stories during easy walks in our fantastic, silent nature. We guide you to the best views and photo spots. Don´t forget your camera!
Please arrive at our headquarters at the quay side in the harbour in Svolvær for the trip to start. Our guide welcomes you and fits you with the right snowshoes and poles before setting off in our minibus to today´s starting point close to Svolvær.
We don´t have to go far to find complete silence and wilderness. We decide the best route after reviewing today´s weather conditions. When there is no snow, we use crampons. You do not have to be fit to go on a trip with us, but interested in wildlife, nature and to get to know more about the Lofoten Islands.
It is recommended to wear many layers of clothes and thick winter boots.
In case of very bad weather conditions the trip may be cancelled or postponed to the next day. We always try to find options and discuss them with our guests.
