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, short (about 5 minutes) drive away from the city. At first we teach 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 terrain and a little up and down hill skiing. Same time we are moving north of the island in a scenic area with birch and spruce forests. During the tour we take a break, then a hot drink and lefse
As the weather can change quickly in the Northern Norway, we recommend everyone to bring the warm clothes and the 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.
