Activity description

Discover Norway's national and most loved sport, cross country skiing in the beautiful Arctic landscapes of Tromsø, welcoming adventurers of ages 7 and up, with no previous experience needed! 

Unleash your inner adventurer and test out your balance on this Cross-country Skiing introduction course, available to all levels of experience! Learn all the tricks and techniques from professionals and take the first step to your own cross-country skiing journey. 

Your adventure begins in Tromsø where you will meet your guides and embark on a 50-minute scenic ride. Marvel at the breathtaking snowy mountains as your guide leads the way to the camp in Breivikeidet. 

Once at the camp, you will receive a thorough introduction, and learn some basic skills to cross-country skiing, including equipment use, and safety techniques. Once you're all set, you will head out and trek through the astonishing Alpine landscapes under the guidance of your experienced guide. Cross-country is all about balance and techniques, combined with getting up close and enjoying the beautiful nature. You will ski along existing trails, and create your own along the way as well, followed by your guide, ensuring your safety at all times. 

After you've finished the course, you will head back to the camp, where you will have some time to cuddle with the friendly and energetic Alaskan huskies. Before heading back to Tromsø, you will recharge and warm up by the campfire in a traditional lavvu, and enjoy a delicious cake, complemented by warm drinks. 

Ready to feel the real sense of satisfaction, gliding along the snowy trails of the Arctic? Book your cross-country skiing introduction in Tromsø and learn all about Norway's most loved sport!

Really enjoyable

As we hadn't done cross country skiiing before, this experience was a great way to learn in a safe environment. I would imagine it would be quite boring to anyone that knew how to ski already as the pace of the skiing is restricted by the slowest person in the group.
