Description

Set off on a snowshoe trek through snowy forests, accompanied by a professional guide!

You'll meet your guide in the centre of Oslo, in front of the tourist office, and take the metro for an original journey that offers panoramic views of the Norwegian capital's winter landscapes. You'll arrive at Frognerseteren, Oslo's most northerly resort overlooking the city and its fjord.

You'll don snowshoes and your guide will give you hiking poles, then after a safety briefing you'll begin your walk through forests covered in a beautiful layer of white snow and along frozen ponds. Your first stop will be at a Norwegian cabin known as a Fuglemyrhytta, where your guide will explain the origin and importance of these cabins in Norwegian culture, and you'll enjoy a hot drink before continuing your activity. 

Your guide will share with you interesting information about Norwegian winter traditions and the animals that live here; keep your eyes peeled, you're bound to come across a deer or fox on your way!

At the end of your walk, you'll reach the metro stop at Frognerseteren and be taken back to your departure point.
