the snow is deep and the fjord is white, we put on our snowshoes to
explore the natural surroundings of Akureyri. We just love the crunch of our footsteps in fresh snow. The snowshoes allow us to go outdoors
without sinking too deep into the white powder and they give grip on
patches of icy snow. There is a snowshoe hike for every type

Quality snowshoes and poles.
