Get ready to explore one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world as you head deep into the winter forests of Bergen on a Guided Snowshoe Hiking Tour. The snowy woods of Norway invite visitors from all around the world every year to experience a winter wonderland.
Bergen, Norway is beautiful in any season. But it is at its best in winter, when the mountains above the city are dusted in snow, and the sunlight shimmers on the icy water of the fjords. This is our guides' favorite time of year when the forests are at their most peaceful.
Your guide will meet you at the main entrance to Bergen Tourist Information at 9:15 AM sharp, and the tour departs at 9:30 (meetup is also available at Bergen City Centrum by appointment). Here is where your adventure begins! We provide transportation into the mountains, which takes 10 minutes to an hour depending on the destination. And don't worry – even if it is not snowing in Bergen, your guide will bring you to perfect snow-filled scenery deep in the mountains.
Once you arrive in the mountains, your guide will provide snowshoes and you will have a chance to hike through the pristine forests. Your guide will choose an "off the beaten path" route, far from crowds and the sounds of civilization. You will have ample opportunities to play in the snow, explore the woods, and take pictures of splendid winter scenery. You and your guide will also take a break to enjoy a warm drink and a Norwegian snack.
Most trips are roughly 2 to 3 hours' walk, but you can also choose a shorter or longer trip if you like. Even though your destination may feel remote, the terrain is always easy. Snowshoes require no training or special skills to use. We will provide everything you need, including snowshoes, poles, hot drinks and snacks, guiding and transfers. Snowshoe Hiking tours are available from November 1 through April 15, if snow conditions allow.
