around AA-GÅRD

When winter falls in northern Norway, a blanket of snow covers everything in a pristine white layer. The beauty of Lavangen’s fjord is magnified within this peaceful tranquillity, the blues of the fjord glitter brighter, and the colourful Northern Lights in the sky shine stronger. 

Aa Gård is grooming tracks in front of the cottages. Just open the front door, strap on a pair of snow shoes, and dive straight into this Norwegian winter wonderland.

The equipment can be rented locally.

Ready to go FURTHER?

Unsurprisingly, the one thing you need to go snowshoe hiking is a pair of snowshoes.

Traditional snow shoes were made by binding tree branches together like a kind of tennis racquet. Now though, snow shoes are made of lightweight aluminium. All you need is a good sturdy set of walking boots.

With so many choices, at Aa-Gård, we are happy to help you design a tailored route based on your interests, fitness level, sporting ability and so on, ranging between 1 and 4 hours.

Whether you want some exercise, a serious trek, or simply some time in the snow, we are on hand for you to make your snowshoe hiking in Norway an unforgettable experience.
