Backcountry ski tour

Want to try skiing for the first time while in Tromsø? Then a backcountry ski tour is your chance!

This tour is conducted by Sommarøy Adventure Tromsø AS. They will take you skiing in the arctic outback, an adventure in true Norwegian style!

So if you want to try skiing for the first time while in Tromsø, then a backcountry ski tour is your chance! It is often said that Norwegians are born with skis on their feet as cross country skiing is our national sport, and we do enjoy heading out to explore the arctic winter on skis. The love for skiing is not only the sport itself, but is about the frosted views, the light and the shared conversations by the fire during a break.

Join us on a venture into the arctic backcountry. Our skis are perfect for offtrack conditions. Being a little shorter and a little wider than regular skiis, they give you the stability and flotation needed for an adventurous day out without any previous experience. Add a little humour for those first downhill wipeouts and we are set for a nice outing.

At the beginning of the tour we will give a short introduction to basic ski technique, and we will progress from there throughout the day. There will be a steep, but fun, learning curve throughout the day, and you'll hopefully come to learn why the norwegians love skiing so much!
