2-day Snow Cave Trek

Have you ever been hiking through the snow? 


Warmer winds brought north by the Gulf Stream, combined with Stavanger’s coastal location in south-western Norway, means that the city is one of the first in Norway to welcome springtime. However, just a stone’s throw outside of Stavanger, thick layers of snow blanket the region’s majestic mountains well into springtime.


Join Outdoorlife Norway on a unique winter trekking/camping adventure.  Breathe in the silence of Norway’s vast wilderness and pristine mountain air; hike into the mountains on snow shoes; enjoy crystal-clear views of the Milky Way; and spend the night on reindeer hides in a cave carved out of snow. In other words, experience first-hand what it feels like to be in a winter wonderland =)


Our professional guides are trained to safely maneuver through the frozen landscape as well as winter’s rapidly changing weather conditions. They carry with them all necessary navigation, safety, first-aid, and outdoor winter equipment. Because the process of building a snow cave can take several hours, construction is finished upon arrival. Our guides know how and where to find suitable conditions for building snow caves.  


This is a moderately difficult 2-day trek. About 21 of the 24-hour trip is spent outside in the wilderness. The hike’s total distance and ascent are dependent on snow conditions and therefore vary from day to day.
