You would like to enjoy the beautiful winter wonderland of Stranda but you’re not confident enough or steady enough on skis. No worries. A snowshoe hike is the way to go. Snowshoeing is an easy and accessible activity that will allow you to float through deep snow and explore the nearby forest at your leisure.
For this trip, you’ll meet your guide at our office in town. There, you’ll get kitted up with snowshoes and poles for your trip. After a short drive up (private cars), you’ll start your walk through old evergreen forest and younger birch glades. It is likely you’ll see some wildlife like rabbits, deer and grouses which are often hiding out around here.
Halfway thru, you will reach Meraftashorn, where you will get a magnificent look out over the village of Stranda, the fjords and surrounding mountains.
