Two days or more in the outdoors. Explore wildlife and get attached to this beautiful wilderness areas in a new way by snowshoe hiking. A safe, sustainable and genuine Oslo Outdoor adventure.

What we do

The first day we pretty much follow the schedule of the Day-tours but will go even deeper into the forests to places where noe one else goes. In these areas it is not unusual to spot moose or other wildlife.

In the late afternoon our hike will end by a basic cabin in the forest, with accommodation, fire stove and cooking facilities. Together we prepare a delicious traditional Norwegian meal and enjoy the winter evening and night. On a clear winter night the stars over these forests is worth the tour itself. Occasionally we also se the northern light although that is rare this far south.
