SNOWSHOE DELIGHT

Eyjafjörður and the surroundings of Akureyri are stunning in the winter and ideal for snowshoeing. This tour takes small groups into those magical winter landscapes. There is a snowshoe hike for every kind of weather and every kind of snow. Just make sure you are fit, dressed for the cold and up for a little adventure. Snowshoeing doesn't require any skills, if you like hiking you will love snowshoeing.

The Snowshoe Delight is scheduled from Monday to Friday (departure from Akureyri at 13:00). You can book this trip individually. Don't forget to check out the dress code (scroll down to 'what to bring'). Icelandic weather conditions can be extreme.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

For everyone in good health with an average hiking condition. 

Be aware that snowshoeing is heavier than normal walking. On fresh snow you can sink deeper and climbing takes more effort. Also the weather influences the difficulty level; the harder the weather, the more challenging the snowshoe hike is.

This trip take about 3-4 hours.

 

WHAT TO BRING

CHECKLIST:

Dress warm enough, we are on an arctic island in winter time.

Weather conditions can change suddenly!

For your own comfort and safety don't show up 'underdressed'.

  • Waterproof and/or windproof jacket (also waterproof pants are recommanded as you often sink in snow)

  • Hiking boots or solid shoes

  • Fleece or wool sweater, or both

  • Thermal underwear makes winter very comfortable

  • Winter outdoor pants. (Jeans is a bad idea. It's not warm, gets wet very easy and takes long to dry. Unless you got extra waterproof pants to cover them of course.)

  • Warm hat, scarf and gloves

  • Sunglasses and sun protection. Let's be optimistic.

  • Snack and water bottle (it is just as easy to get dehydrated during the winter as it is in the summer)

  • Small backpack can be good to put your extras in (camera, snack, water, sweater).
