Snowshoeing in Sunnmøre

Experience mountain and fjords

Our favorite area for snowshoeing! In Valldal you`ll find numerous spectacular hikes perfect for snowshoeing, and the area has also often the best snow condition in Sunnmøre. Our favorite hike here is Snowshoe hike to Peak Mefjellet and Hunting the Northern Light with snowshoes. What characterizes Valldal, is the spectacular landscape and the fact that the area is not highly visited during winter. This will give you an authentic, calm, and peaceful experience. In the area, you will find Reinheimen National Park, Geiranger and Herdalen Landscape Conservation Area, several nature reserves, and the UNESCO fjord Tafjord.

The Sunnmøre Alps & Stranda
We also have a spectacular and easy hike on Strandafjellet that is worth checking out! Stranda is located in the middle of the majestic mountains Sunnmørsalpane and has numerous opportunities for nice hikes. With a short distance from city center to the mountains, Stranda is a good starting point to experience the area with snowshoes on your feet.

If you live some distance from Valldal or Stranda, we are happy to come to the area you are staying. We have several good alternatives near Ålesund, Storfjord Hotell, Geiranger, Hjørundfjorden. Choose our trip “A taste of winter Sunnmøre” or contact us directly.

Private tours

To give you the best experience, we mainly offer private tours. In this way, we can tailor the trip to you and the group’s prerequisites and wishes. Feel free to write a little about your previous experience, physical condition, and describe your desires/motivation when ordering. We will contact you in advance to plan and find the best trip for you!

Hiking with snowshoes

Snowshoeing is an activity that suits everyone and does not require a good balance or being an athlete in good physical shape. With snowshoes, you float easily on the deep snow or have a good grip if the snow is icy and crusty. It is therefore a perfect activity for families, couples, groups of friends, or companies who want to do something together and experience nature.
