Snowshoeing in the sunset

The large surfaces under your shoes mean that you make giant footprints as if you were the abominable snowman, but they enable you to get through the snow easily. 

A half-hour walk in these special shoes takes you out onto the frozen fishing water. Here you will get to try a traditional Norwegian winter activity. Holes are drilled in the ice, the line is dropped in, and then it's just a matter of waiting. It is quiet and peaceful here, yet excitement hangs in the air. Will you hook something? 

A hot drink seldom tastes as good as it does when you are waiting by a fishing hole on the ice.
