The main aim of this exciting three-hour snowshoe trek is to have a close-up experience of the silent Arctic nature.
We will be joined by one of our three Alaskan Huskies – Javri, Phelps or Lund – to help pull or carry the gear.
Duration: 10am – 1pm (3 hours)
Guided snowshoeing experience
Thermo suits and over shoes
Hot chocolate/coffee/tea and light expedition lunch
We will see traces of the ice sheet that was several hundred metres thick here 10,000 years ago and learn about the plant life and the history of Alta and the Alta River. We look for tracks and signs of foxes, hares, moose and eagles and, if we are really lucky, we will even see them.
Snowshoeing is a fun and easy activity and is a great way to explore the snow-covered Arctic landscape. We take a break during the trip and make an open fire, brew tea, coffee or hot chocolate and prepare a small expedition meal/snacks.
Join us on a fascinating snowshoeing adventure in the Arctic nature!
