Imagine gliding carefree across the fresh, glistening snow, and all you can hear is the the serenity of your own movements in nature.
Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are popular activities among the locals in the Lyngenfjord region, just north of Tromsø. Just remember to pack a lunch box with some Kvikk Lunsj (a classic Norwegian chocolate when you're enjoying the outdoors), an orange or two and some hot chocolate and you're good to go!
