    Survive the depths of winter.

    When you're lost in the Norwegian forest, and you find yourself in uncharted territory mid-blizzard, you'll probably be glad the Fimbulvetr Hikr Snowshoe is part of your arsenal. Constructed from robust, durable thermoplastics, these shoes can withstand temperatures down to -130F, letting you hike long distances in the bitter cold as you scavenge for rations to get you through the night. Super lightweight with hard biting steel crampons, these crampons allow you to go farther, faster—and hopefully make it back to town before sunrise. Rotating bindings and a heel lift will come in handy should you encounter steep inclines on your trek back to civilization.

    • Lightweight snowshoe for long hikes in cold temperatures
    • Single body frame distributes weight and means fewer parts to break
    • Robust construction resists extreme winter temperatures
    • All Direction Hinge provides unparalleled traction on steep surfaces
    • Stainless steel Fenris Crampons will bite deep in icy snow
    • Binding is durable and easy to handle for quick maneuvering

    Does its job so I can do mine.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There are very few products that can withstand the rigors of forestry work, including snowshoes. Fimbulvetr has given me the confidence that there are products that are up to the test. The Hikr has provided me with a new found confidence while out in the mountains. They are certainly as tough as tough as environments that am exposed to on a daily basis. They do their job so I can do mine. Tough, light, dependable.

    Hugin Binding with instructions

    Easy to use. Perfect fit. Super strong.



    The Hugin Binding is an evolved version of our original binding. We have swapped the straps and buckles for an efficient lace and lock system.

    The lacing provides tight, even pressure and support around the foot, kept in place by an intuitive and robust locking mechanism.



    Proven by billions of ordinary shoes, we are happy to discover how well lacing applies to our snowshoes as well.

    Fimbulvetr Hikr

    Go steeper, move faster.

    The extreme cold robustness, smooth ergonomics and progressive attitude of HIKR, will turn any snow-covered backyard into a winter wonderland. With integrated, adjustable heel lifts and an asymmetric design that squeezes a traditional 28” performance down to just 24”, HIKR provides clear advantages — it moves fast and effortlessly in all directions.

    Snowshoe convert with the Hikr

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are fantastic snowshoes for true off-trail, backcountry travel. I had been a snowshoe doubter prior to using the Fimbulvetr Hikr, but these bad-boys converted me.

    Size: The Hikr's are wider than some other brands, and at 5'8", it took me a few minutes to adjust my gait, but it was easy to adapt. Their girth also allows them to have a shorter tail as well, which makes plunge stepping downhill a breeze. The main downside of the width for me was that they were bulky when strapped to a pack - but the light-weight design makes up for it.

    Comfort: These snowshoes are great on gentle slopes, but they really excel on the uphill. Fantastic grip - from the snowshoe itself as well as the crampon, and the suspension system adds tremendous benefit when cutting across steep sidehills

    Straps: I found these really intuitive and stayed locked in with ease, but my boyfriend had a hard time getting his foot positioned over the crampon. It's worth it to spend time getting the foot aligned in the system, or the bindings do tend to move a little.

    These snowshoes are a great flotation system, and though pricey, are worth it if you spend serious time off-trail in steep or varied terrain. These aren't necessarily for your casual packed trail near the parking lot - but for getting backcountry, these are worth it.

    Overall, a solid product...

      I live in the Adirondack Mountains. It is WET and COLD and so as much as I'd love to say that I'm constantly dealing with DEEP snow. It's not that often. When we do, these babies float and they are not annoyingly squeaky at all like your usual plastic snowshoe. The crampons are burly enough to stand up to our bullet-proof ice. The binding system with the all-direction hinge was awesome for uneven terrain (to include post-holed trails). They had nice flex, even in bitter cold temps. There are very few moving parts to break - overall really streamlined design. Therein lies the only issue, the straps/buckles can get a little iced up in really trying wet/slushy conditions.

      I love how light they are, not at all awful to strap to a pack.

      They felt a little wide for my natural gait, but certainly not the worst I've experienced. I'm 5'4 (ish), 115 so they'd likely be fine for most.

      Overall, a solid product...

      Fall a little short

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I really wanted to like these snowshoes as the design looks fantastic.

      Pros: great retention system - easy to get in and out of without any pain points on the feet. Possibly the best showshoe retention system I've seen that's not boa.

      Cons: The shoes are really wide so you're constantly rubbing the insides of the shoes together. Crampons fill with ice and snow and traction is reduced when this happens. Heel risers get filled with ice and snow and become impossible to engage.

      This snowshoe looked fantastic on paper but in real world usage, they fell a little short.

      Good idea but straps not great

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      As mentioned in other comments, the bindings weren't great. I attempted multiple times to place my foot in a certain way to avoid them getting caught under the front arch but after a while, my foot slipped forward.

      The snowshoes were light and flexible. Enjoyed the design, length and felt comfortable going uphill utilizing the heel lift.

      Nice design and technology (edit)

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is an edit from my last review in which I was having issues with the bindings. Since then, the customer service team has contacted me twice to provide me with information and assistance.

      The bindings are minimalist and a bit tricky, like some have mentionned. This is a natural downside to having a system that fits any boot/shoe. The main aspects to keep in mind to have a good experience are foot and buckles positioning. If you have any trouble, contact the Fimbulvtr team and they'll provide you with pictures.

      When attached correctly, the bindings are stable and more comfortable than many others as your feet are not stuck in a rigid platform. This can at first feel strange, but it's for the best !

      These snowshoes look and feel great. They are also sturdy. The Hinge is a good idea and delivers well. You get a more flexible and natural feel than on regular snowshoes. Going up and down a mountain was easy with these on, even in bad/icy conditions.

      My experience has been very positive (after taming the bindings!) and I highly recommend the Hikr !

      Different in a good way

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm a big guy and these give me plenty of float. As everyone has noted, they're weird compared to other snowshoes, but weird in this case is good. They have lots of grip on steep slopes, they're sturdy, and in general, I don't have any complaints.

      As someone else noted, the bindings, while simple, were a bit frustrating at first because they weren't what I was used to, but they aren't cheap. They're strong, and after a few minutes of fiddling with it, I realized they're plenty easy as well.

      The wife will learn to love them

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      When we first got them I was shocked at how big they were, but after picking them up I realized that these just might do the trick. They are a completely different design than what I am used to when dealing with snow shoes. The strap system is very easy to work with, as the wife had them on her feet and ready to go before I even got my first snowshoe strapped in. While the strap was a little long after tightening them up I see these being a huge success moving forward with more and more use. If you want a snowshoe that can basically blow through anything that comes in its way I strongly recommend giving these a try.

      Sad bindings and colors not as shown

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Cool platform design but sad bindings and no instructions to properly secure them - $270 shoes with cheap bindings - too long and extra long drag in snow - have to tie them out of the way - not thought through at all - seriously thinking about sending 2 new pairs back - very disappointed. Plus colors suck - orange is not vibrant - more of a burnt/dull orange and white is a putty-off white.
