SNOWSHOEING FOR FAMILIES- Private tour
Snowshoeing is almost as exciting for parents as for their kids! Wide Open wants to encourage families with kids to enjoy an outdoor snow adventure.

|TEENAGER PRICE||10.000 ISK (age 13 to 17)|
|ADULT PRICE||13.000 ISK|
|INCLUDED||rental of snowshoes and poles, driver and guide (English, French, Spanish, Dutch)|
|DEPARTURE & ARRIVAL||9:00 am until 12:00 pm|
Due to weather or road conditions, the tour might take more time, less time or be cancelled.
We believe children can sometimes do much more than adults think they can do.
But still, parents estimate much better than us if their children can do this.
We set a minimum age of 5 years old. The kids snowshoes carry a minimum weight of 20 kg.
The minimum charge for a family trip is 27.500 ISK.
We use our snowshoes when there is enough snow, or put on crampons if there is more ice then snow.
WHAT TO BRING
Dress warm enough, we are on an arctic island in winter time.
Weather conditions can change suddenly!
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).
