Snowshoeing

Guided snowshoeing trips

Fjord landscape with untouched snow

Welcome to an eldorado for winter activities! In this area, you can experience a fantastic fjord landscape with untouched snow, old mountain pastures, deep valleys and forests, as well as fantastic fjord views. With snowshoes on your legs, you are ready!

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.

Professional guides from Uteguiden will give you a thorough introduction to walking with snowshoes and adapt the snowshoes to give you the best experience.

Stranda

Snowshoeing to Lievarden or Roaldshorn

On Stranda, you can reach the iconic mountain peak Lievarden (799 masl) or join a short snowshoe trip with spectacular panoramic views to Roaldshornet, starting from the top of the gondola on Strandafjellet, at the pavilion Fjord Panorama.

Stranda is located in the middle of the majestic Sunnmøre Alps, with unprecedented opportunities for nice walks. Stranda is a good starting point to experience the area with snowshoes on your feet, with only a short distance from the centre to the mountains.

Valldal

Experience nature and silence

In Valldal, you can join the day trip and our best-seller, Summit trip to Mefjellet, or a shorter half-day trip where we find a suitable trip according to your wishes.

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.

Booking of trips

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!
