Snow shoes & Ice Fishing
This is a four and a half hour snowshoeing trek out in Alta’s forests. On this trip, we try ice fishing and eat lunch grilled on an open fire at GLØD’s wilderness camp.
The scenic snowshoe trek to the camp takes us through beautiful and peaceful pine forests surrounded by high mountains.
The wilderness camp has an idyllic location beside a small lake, which has always had excellent fish stocks. But catching these big, nice fish is not always an easy task!
If we are lucky, we will eat fresh, self-caught Arctic char for lunch. If not, we will grill the delicacies we have bought on an open fire.
The area has a rich animal life, such are hares, foxes and moose, as well as bird such as eagles and the rough-legged buzzard.
We have four huskies; Javri, Phelps, Atlas and Bruneo. One of them will join us on the tour. He will pull a small sled with the equipment. Huskies love to work and help their best friends!
Bring your camera, as there are many photo opportunities!
