Once in Norway you cannot leave without trying our national sport! Our cross-country ski trip is designed for beginners – people who have never tried skiing before, or have tried it many years ago.
We ski in flat terrain, mostly on prepared trails on the top of the Tromsøya island, a short drive away from the city-center (about 5 minutes). At first we teach you how to put the skis on and off and then we begin to ski using basic techniques on a completely flat area. After some training, we introduce some different techniques for skiing on the flat and sometimes little hilly terrain. We ski toward the north part of the island in a scenic area with birch and spruce forests. During the tour we take a break and you will be served hot drink and lefse (sweet snack).
As the weather can change quickly in the Northern Norway, we recommend everyone to bring warm clothes and wind-proof jacket/trousers on all our tours. Proper clothes can be also rented in our rental center, but are not included in the price of the trip.
