Black night – a snow shoe hike in the dark

Tjeldsundbrua Hotel is surrounded by beautiful nature. Something that creates perfect conditions for a snow shoe hike in the winter.

Our route goes up into the darkness in a valley. Without streetlights, traffic and Wi-Fi. You can disconnect from the world completely and enjoy the starry night sky and the northern lights while listening to the crackling from the bonfire.

The purpose of this hike is not to burn calories, but to recharge your batteries. The route is not of a challenge and suits all ages..

Duration: 3 hours
Meeting point: Tjeldsundbrua Hotel
Price: NOK 675,- per person
