Have you ever been hiking through the snow? Do you dream of walking in a winter wonderland? Join Outdoorlife Norway on a hike into the region’s snow-covered mountains and experience Norway’s long cold winter, on snowshoes!

Our professional guides know where to find the best snow-conditions on any given day, and will plan your hike accordingly. While being transported to the hiking trail, which takes between 1-2 hours, you’ll pass through a variety of dramatic landscapes. Some of the things you can look forward to seeing include fjords, mountains, waterfalls, boulder fields, isolated farm villages, and steep granite walls towering over u-shaped valleys that were carved out by glaciers.

At the trail-head, your guide will introduce you to the art of hiking with snowshoes and then lead you on a 4-hour adventure through what can only be described as a winter wonderland. Along the way, the guide will search for the best vantage points for you to view Norway’s spectacular wilderness. There will be short breaks along the way for snapping photos and learning about local nature. During your lunch-break, you’ll have time to take in the beauty and serenity of the unique nature around you.

To ensure that you’ll meet as few people as possible on the trail, your guide will diligently search for opportunities to hike ‘off-the-beaten-track’. Our goal is to maximize the quality of your experience and interaction with Norway’s pristine nature.

We went on the Preikestolen hike on day one and snowshoeing on day 2. Both were great! Awesome views, beautiful nature and a very knowledgeable guide. We’ll be back takk for turen

My friend and I were in Stavanger for 3 days and booked two trips with Johannes – Preikestolen Winter Hike & Winter Snowshoe Hike. Both trips with Johannes were with very small groups (just my friend and I in fact!) which made the experience very personal and memorable. As promised, there were snacks (nuts) and a hot drink (black currant juice) at the top. We came during the off season, so the conditions for the snowshoe hike weren’t great (icy wind) but Johannes reminded us that the goal was get closer to nature – sometimes that’s not comfortable. I would book again with Outdoorlife Norway in a heartbeat, I don’t think there’s any other way to safely explore nature in Norway!

I had a great time at Outdoorlife Norway. Johannes (the owner) and Sol (his assistant) were great and awesome guides. They know it’s my first time to do snowshoe hiking, they keep on asking if I’m okay and adapted to my pace. They gave me lots of information about the place and had a good conversation with them during the trip. If I’ll come back to Norway, I would like to try their 5-day hike and other hiking day trips. Of course! I will highly recommend Outdoorlife Norway to my friends and other people who are interested to have memorable trip in Norway. 🙂 🙂 🙂

I’m beyond happy with my snowshoeing experience with Outdoorlife Norway. The scenery was breathtaking and the hot black currant juice on our break was just what we needed! The snow gave way to sun and the wind made the day feel like a North Pole expedition. It was amazing. I’m a seasoned snowshoe-r and I had as much fun as the others in the group who had never been. If you are looking for a unique Stavanger experience, do not miss out on the opportunity to check out the country side by snowshoes.
