A Forest Excursion on Snowshoes
A local guide will pick you up at the doorstep of your accommodation. After you have been given suitable winter clothing the guide will bring you to the sheltered and beautiful Rotsundelv Valley for an exciting snowshoeing adventure.
The starting point for the snowshoeing tour will be picked based on the best up to date knowledge of where to find moose. A moose is the largest animal in the forest. A adult moose can get up to 700kg and live to be over 20 years. Due to it’s superior size compared to the other forest wildlife norwegians call it the “King of the Forest”.
Half-way through the tour the guide will find a suitable place to make a rest and set up a bonfire. A small meal and warm beverage will be served during the break.
No previous snowshoeing experience required.
