On the snowshoe trip to Keipen with ArctiConcepts, you can soak in the sheer beauty in the views of the fjords and mountains of Norway surrounding you.
A tradition largely followed in Northern Norway is to carry out outdoor activities on the mountain top with a bright bonfire and prepare meals around it. This experience is exactly what is offered on this hiking tour, all while surrounded by the region’s tall mountains and deep fjords. And what better time to experience it than in winter, capped in the snow? So strap on your snowshoes and prepare yourself for the trip of a lifetime.
This adventure will begin at a point 350 meters above sea level. A guide will take you to this point from the ArctiConcepts’ centre in Harstad via a short drive and bus ride. From there begins the walk. Though, in only 20 minutes, you will cross the tree line and get a teaser of the view that awaits you.
You can make your way up at a slow pace, and you will reach Keipen at 500 metres above sea level after roughly an hour. Once you’re at the top, you will be greeted by the unforgettable views of Kasfjord, Andfjord, and Toppsundet on one side. Dominating the other side is Grytøya, the steep mountain that lives to tell the tales of the last Ice Age.
You can warm up and soak in the view as you light up a campfire and prepare a light meal for yourself. The tour draws to an end as you finish your meal and begin heading back to the car.
Enjoy a bonfire and food while taking in the most spectacular view of the region's landscapes.
