Activity description

Prepare for an unforgettable adventure in the arctic nature!This unique experience has it all - a beautiful snowshoeing hike, glimpses of the dancing Northern Lights, and a cozy overnight stay in a traditional Norwegian cabin.

Breathe in the nature of Norway and simply feel cozy and comfortable. 

The adventure begins at 6 pm with an instructor transporting you from the Tromsø city center to the Polar Cabin, about a 30-minute drive. From the parking area, you will walk along a 1.3 km path (about 20 mins) to the sweet and inviting cabin. In the evening, you will be served a hot traditional dinner with bacalao, tea, coffee, and dessert. You will wait for the Aurora in the comfort of your cabin or you are free to explore the surrounding area! Your overnight accommodation consists of two shared dormitory rooms, one with 4 beds and one with 6 beds, with the beds being arranged in alcoves of 2.

The following morning, you will wake up to a delicious breakfast so that you can power through today’s hike! Once you are warm from your coffee and a full belly, you will embark on a snowshoeing adventure with spectacular views on the fjords and surrounding mountains.

After the hike, you will have a little bit of time to rest with an expected arrival back to the city at approximately 11:30 am.

It was amazing to walk in the snow with the guide and see the Northern Light. The full moon was also a fantastic treat. Breathtaking views and a great Polar Cabin.

Wonderful time!

We were lucky to have the cabin all to ourselves with Jana and Michal. The hike to the cabin and up to the lake were both peaceful and a nice healthy challenge as well as exercise. The food was excellent and portions were very good as well.
