The trail network in Snåsa offer wonderful opportunities for great nature experiences in the Snåsa mountains, whether you want to try your luck in fishing waters or take a ski summit hike to the top of a mountain.

150 km long trail network for snowmobiles and skiing!

You will find an impressive 150 km long track network. You can of course just get on a snowmobile with a packed lunch in your backpack annd just enjoy the scenery. Or  drive the snowmobile to great fishing waters such as Øydingen, Andorsjøen, Ismenningen, Grønningen or Langvatnet. The trails also give you a unique opportunity to more easily reach tall mountains using cross country skis or Randonnée. Andorfjellet, Lurusneisa, Finnhuva, Heggsjøfjellet and Langnesfjellet are all excellent destinations.
